A lot of exciting stuff has been going on with TapTyping in the past two months. The holiday tradition of being locked out of iTunes Connect for 7 days begins tomorrow so it seems like a great time to update the ol’ blog.
Three versions of TapTyping have been released in the past 6 weeks and I’m really pumped. I beleive now, more than ever, that touch screen typing is going to be an essential skill for everyone. I am now dedicating 100% of my time into making TapTyping the best virtual keyboard tutor it can be.
On November 22nd I submitted version 3.1 which added iPad typing heat maps to the lesson statistics pages. The heat maps show you exactly where on the keyboard each tap occurs and highlights erroroneous taps with red. By using the heat map the user can easily spot where their problem keys are and adjust accordingly between each page. The instant feedback you get from the heat map is a great tool for improving your typing accuracy and increasing your iPad WPM.
TapTyping 3.2, which became avaialbe on December 9th, finally brought one of the most requested features to the free version of our app: more content. A new crash course lesson was added for and all of the paid app’s content was made available via In-App-Purchasing.
And finally, TapTyping 3.3 became available yesterday adding the Inspirational Quotes lesson and fixing a few bugs introduced in version 3.2. Users of the free version can also now purchase all of the typing courses; Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced; as a single “full curriculum”.
Do you have ideas for how I can improve TapTyping? If so, I’d love to hear them. Please don’t hesitate to drop me an email or leave a comment below. Happy Holidays!
