    Hello Community,
    lately I have been busy writing an App that helps you increase your typing speed on the BlackBerry Keyboard!
    It will contain over 50 lessons where you can practice your skills. The lessons are relatively easy at the beginning (fjfj fjfj as as kl kl kl...) but will get harder and more complex at the end. The App saves the words-per-minute you typed for every lesson so that you can see what lessons you need to practice more often and which you already master fast!

    The App will also include typing tests where you can check how well you do and how you improved your speed while you use this App.

    Does that sound interesting? Would you use an App like that? It will be sold for around $4 and available here at the store.

    What would YOU like to see in an App that helps you improve your typing speed? Let me know here!

    Cheers,
    -Fabian

    cool, i have been wondering and kinda waiting for an app like this,

    we should be able to share our speed with others,
    maybe u could have more lessons to be downloaded and saved on ms if possible.
    maybe a small typing game would be sweet.

    thanks dude

    also what would be nice is learn word abbreviations to help shorten words and make typing that much baster. eg, brb, wtf, etc. thanks

    Some sort of leaderboard, for different handsets. To see which has the fastest most accurate typing surface.

    Personally I don't think I need this app, but for those struggling with their keyboards its a good idea.

    If you don't get an answer, you may have to remotely activate the hidden, "This app will self destruct in 10 seconds" feature.

    No free rides for beta testers, lol
