Excellent and the price is right! - I saw this and figured I'd give it a try. I've just spent the last 30 mins playing with it and I have to say that it's really helpful in terms of finding where one can focus to improve. It's also kind of fun! I've always known I try to type to fast and that results in having to backup a lot while I'm typing to correct things. This marvelous little program confirmed that in spades. I'm not a great typer, averaging around 40 to 50 words per minute. But this has really helped me understand that I actually need to slow down to improve my speed. Very counterintuititive, but true. I was getting upwards of 60 words per minute when I started taking my time. And I would not have known for sure but for this program. Also it helped me spot some letters I didn't even know I was weak on. Kudos to the develper for a job well done!
stopped working - With the most recent update the program stopped showing any text in the exercise box.
