Tool to tackle touch typing

Learn how to touch type with this tool that uses fun games and lessons to help make learning to type more fun.

Ten Thumbs Typing Tutor is a touch-typing tutorial that uses fun games, adaptive lessons, iTunes accompaniment, and a goofy Viking character to help make learning to type more fun. This application takes a holistic approach to typing instruction, starting with basic good habits (such as how to sit for maximum comfort and efficiency) and following with timed lessons that adapt on the fly to give you more practice with any problem areas.

Ten Thumbs Typing Tutor provides a lot of feedback on your progress, and two different games (Brick Factory, in which you build the Eiffel Tower, and Safari Park, where you dodge missiles and alligators) let you take a break while sharpening your skills. Ten Thumbs Typing Tutor also comes with an iTunes SongSeeker feature, which can help you practice by downloading and typing lyrics to songs from your iTunes library as you listen to them. Overall, Ten Thumbs Typing Tutor is an enjoyable and engaging tutorial--but you get what you pay for, and users also have free and lower-priced options to choose from in this category.
