[prMac.com] San Diego, California - For new iPhone and iPad users, learning to use the on-screen keyboard can be frustrating and a hindrance to productivity. To help users get up to speed and get the most out of their device, Bellasoft has announced the release of their new app, TurboType. With separate versions designed specifically for the iPhone and iPad, TurboType combines an easy to use typing tutor with an exciting racing game, teaching users to become expert typists in a format that never feels like learning. TurboType is available for both the iPhone and iPad on the iTunes App Store.
At its core, TurboType is a high speed typing race that teaches users to be better iPhone or iPad typists while they play. The faster the user types, the faster their racecar will go, while typing mistakes are penalized by slowing the player's vehicle. By simply playing the game, users will almost instantly become more adept using the on-screen keyboards, which in turn will enhance their productivity whenever they use their iPhone or iPad.
Users can set the app to either portrait or landscape keyboards to practice in either format. Unique to TurboType, all text within the races is generated randomly, so it is impossible to advance simply through memorization. TurboType also includes 3 difficulty settings, to challenges players as their skills progress. Typing speed and accuracy are displayed after every race, so users can track their progress. Posting higher scores allow users to unlock additional vehicles and racetracks, adding to TurboType's versatility and replayability.
