Most Helpful Reviews
My son loves it and is really learning to type! - This program is a lot of fun. My son actually looks forward to practicing each day. The lessons progress at a good pace, with lessons, tests, dictation, and games with multiple skill levels and options – so even for my son (age 11) this software never gets old. His goal word per minute is 30, and he’s making steady progress to get there shortly, which will be just about 4 weeks. The games have him hooked plus the theme is fun and makes practicing enjoyable. I give it a full 5 stars.
Waste of Money - I bought a brand new Macbook Pro and downloaded this app the very same day. At first the program worked great for me and the first few lessons were quickly learned. However, the more I used the app, the more it would freeze. Now, I only know half the keyboard and the system locks up every time I try to use it to learn more. Very disappointing, waste of money.

Worst kind of shovelware - This is some kind of 90's era shovelware repackaged as a Mac application. The resolution is stuck somewhere around 640x480 with large black bars on any modern computer. A saving grace is the large number of typing "games" in the arcade. Not worth anywhere near the price.
title - Did not work after the first couple times. I just wasted nearly $20 on something that doens’t work and I’d like my money back. Not kid friendly either.
Locks up on Mavericks - Crashes and locks up A LOT on OS X Mavericks. I wish I could get a refund.
Crashes … No Customer Support… Bad Company - Crashes … No Customer Support… Bad Company. Look elsewhere. There are lots of alternatives.
Absolutely Love it! - This app has been incredible for my friends and I in college! Typing was a skill we always wanted to have but never learned- until we started using Typing Instructor Platinum. The challenge and fun of passing levels to get to new countries really motivated us, and we loved the way it assessed our current level and tailored our lessons to meet our specific needs. I would highly reccomend it to ANY friend! Extremely fun and educational app!
