Use SpeedType to test your iPhone typing speed. Simply touch the Start button to begin the test and start typing. The light yellow bar highlights the current line to type. The green letter is the next letter you must type. If you type the wrong letter, the letter to type turns red. You must type the correct letter to advance to the next letter. At the end of a line, touch the spacebar to advance to the next line. When you finish the last line, you can see how long you took to type the text, how many characters were required to type the text, and your typing speed in characters per minute. The speed is calculated using the elapsed time and the number of characters in the text.

Rated 2/5 based on 3 customer reviews.
The idea of a typing tutor/ speed test for the iPhone is excellent, especially given how many people need to acclimate themselves to the virtual keyboard.
Unfortunately, this program does not do very much. It only has one entry that you have to type as quickly as possible. Meaning you can only type one sentence over and over. This makes the program nearly useless.
Secondary problems: the measure of your speed is shown in characters per minute. Words per minute, while probably less precise, is a more useful measure.
Another big one for me is that autocorrect is disabled. It makes perfect sense that a typing test should test your ability to type and not the iPhone's ability to fix your mistakes, but at the same time if you are trying to speed type on the iphone, the autocorrect is an integral part of what makes it usable. For a realworld speed test, therefore, autocorrect is necessary. Maybe an option would solve this?
Overall it really does not deliver on the promise and I hope it is improved in the future.
Great App, Dumb reviewers!

No wonder you guys can't write the first "T" because you have to make it UPPERCASE!!!!! It doesn't make the first letter automaticlly Capitalized so you have to capitialize it but pressing the Upper Case button then press "t". See guys it is a great app to help you txt faster.
I am almost positive that this app would be terrific if it came with an easy/medium/hard setting, and many more sentences (which includes a variation of numbers, letters, symbols, etc., etc.). Off subject, the icon could use a little bit of touching up... Otherwise, great!! Keep up the good work!!
