Laser Typing - Wow! Finally a program that doesn't expect you to know how to type.

This is a game, not a typing instruction program. - This is not really an app for teaching typing. It's fine for practice, but there are no introductory lessons and there is no place to enter names for multiple users or to save progress. I've seen free games online that are just as good.

Qwerty-only. - I use Dvorak. This app doesn't support dvorak: it forces your keyboard layout to qwerty (and it glitched out when I first launched it while under dvorak). I didn't purchase the program to use with dvorak, but it would be nice if it didn't break just because I'm on the "wrong" keyboard settings. I don't know if it glitches under other alternative or international keyboard settings, but this is something that should be addressed by the programmers. It's also possible to create a typing tutor program that would support alternative layouts.

Helping with hunt and peck - After just a few sessions, I am finally making headway with my hunt and peck habits. I especially like eing able to jump around on lessons. I recommend it highly.

My son is excited about the program - My son just wants the typing to keep going and going because he LOVES the sound of the laser. Anything that keeps him interested is great!

Typing faster already... - This program is great for all typing levels. The easy navigation allow you to jump to different levels of difficulty suitable for beginners to experienced typers. The easy to use nature of the program and entertaining way to teach typing is great for kids, yet still engaging and challenging for older folks. Having the "home row" foundation has really helped me to type faster and with less typos. I've battled my older brother and friends to see who can type fastest on more complex levels and the competition helps to drive us to type faster and more efficiently. All in all, very impressed with this program and wish I could have origionally learned to type with this program!
