Typing Fingers is an app that will teach you how to type the right way on your Mac.
Great for homeschooling. Contains typing games.
- Ready for US/EN QWERTY keyboard layout -
Typing Fingers uses a completely new approach to teach the efficient touch-typing (ten-fingers) system. It makes typing fun, is interactive and works with modern technologies and a new teaching method. The beautiful design and peaceful music create an amazing atmosphere that allows everybody, including children, to improve their typing skills and get TYPING FINGERS DIPLOMA after successful completion of all levels.
*** SYMMETRIC SUPER LEARNING ***
Typing Fingers uses a modern teaching approach based on brain analysis. The SYMETRIC method helps to activate both brain hemispheres equally in the process of learning and playing the game. The user maps the keyboard symmetrically and symmetrical patterns are repeated again and again during the whole game.
*** GET A TYPING FINGERS DIPLOMA ***
Win the game and get Foriero's Typing Fingers diploma! You can get exactly the same diploma as you see on the screen shots except with your name and date of game completion. Just print it and stick it on the wall and everybody, even you, will be proud that you have successfully completed TYPING FINGERS.
*** 32 LEVELS WITH INTERACTIVE TUTOR ***
In all the 32 lessons a "Tutor" called "Dennis" will help you to learn which fingers are for striking which keys. The levels are built up gradually, so you learn how to use your keyboard in a fun and easy way.
*** LEARNING & PLAYING MODE ***
Each lesson is divided into two parts. The first one is for learning purposes. In this part Dennis helps you to memorize letters and symbols and to practise the correct motion.
The second part is a game and you have "ONLY" three lives to beat the level. Work diligently, ardently and persistently and you´ll get it!
*** WRITE US ***
If you have any ideas or notions or just feelings on how to improve this
app you can always press the WRITE US button in the game and send us your feedback and wishes. We will be very glad to incorporate all your input into a new version.

Very Good for 2.99 - After a reboot, I can see the whole screen and skip the intoduction. Runs fine on my Mac Mini 3,1 Core 2 2GHz duo, 1 GB memory. Graphics are nice, background music is alright, but, I have TWO kids, ONE mac, and want to keep seperate results for each child. After emailing the text of my original review with gripes, the developer almost immediately emailed me back explaining the basic Apple Mac stuff I did not know, and how to do what I wanted, to create a seperate login to my Mac for each child, to keep each result seperate. I want to run the program in a window smaller than full screen, I just have to tell it less resolution than what my desktop is set to use. He also explained how to reset the program back to the orginal state. No apparent way to generate reports, but it never said it did. I probably don't need to track my kid's progress given how quickly they are learning. BOTH 8 yr. old sons like this program. The combination of easy to understand lessons and easy to understand game that each build letter by letter works for my kids extremely well. My kids are happy and learning a lot faster than I did, back in the manual typewriter days. I then purchased the iPad version. Also works great, needs earbuds to hear the sound (no surprise there), and I found out that the smaller than full size Logitech keyboard I use is really the wrong thing to use to learn to type. The iPad version would be great with a stand for the iPad and a full size bluetooth keyboard. Instead, I am going to buy a copy for each of my boy's laptops to keep them from hogging my mac. This program is much better for the new beginner to typing than anything else I can find. After my kids can touch type I'll run them through a course on business typing and formatting. Great program, well done, FANTASTIC support response, would have given it a better review originally if I knew my Mac Mini better.
Not Mountain Lion compatible - I'm running OS X 10.8.1 (Mountain Lion) and the app is unresponsive. It would have been nice to have known this before wasting my money.
