Type the correct letter and the keys on the keyboard remain faded out. Pause your typing, and the letters will fade back in.

The app is also fully compatible with external keyboards. The app is in landscape mode only and does not support the Apple portrait dock. A lockable appAs a parent or teacher you can lock the app into a restricted student mode. When in student mode, lessons cannot be created or deleted and profiles cannot be changed. Other options are available depending on your teacher/parent choices. These include access to the Ghost Write function, home screen options and access to any external links. Fully COPPA compliant. Take a Lesson or a Speed TestThe lessons work much like traditional typing programs on computers you may have used when you first learned to type. As you type in the characters, theyll be lightened out. Your current character will be highlighted in green, while mistyped characters will be highlighted in red. As you type youll see the time elapsed, your average words per minute (wpm), and your accuracy percentage.The aim is to try to type in the words as fast as you can without looking at the virtual keys. Once you finish, your various statistics will be recorded. You will discover that its not that hard to gain speed and accuracy on the iPad keyboard.I think the ghost keyboard is a great idea. The look and feel is great and it's pretty intuitive to us. Multiple profiles, locking aspects of app are excellent ideas - teachers will really love that, especially teachers who don't have 1 to 1 iPads. Richard, Australian Teacher."Congratulations on a great app.. As a touch typist on a standard keyboard it is sometimes a struggle to translate that skill to the iPad, but just a short time on Ghost Type has already retuned my brain to be faster and more accurate than I would have imagined... Anyone using an iPad, adult or child will benefit greatly from this app."Fun AND educational ***** by Critical analyst Also a big thanks to the US District that purchased 1800 copies recently.
