Ghost Type - a typing tutor that is more than a just a typing tutor

March 22, 2012 in Education (E)

[] Coolum Beach, Australia - demografix, creators of the Ghost Type typing tutor for the iPad have for the first time made learning to type interesting by creating a quality app that allows users to create typing lessons with content to suit individual children or students, while using an innovative ghosting keyboard. demografix today is proud to introduce Ghost Type - a typing tutor to master your iPad typing skills 1.0 for iPad.

Learning to master the keyboard of an iPad is made easier, with Ghost Type and improving your skills is a breeze. The Ghost Type app has an innovative keyboard that displays the letters until you start typing. The unique fading keyboard aids the user in memorizing the layout of the iPad keyboard. Type the correct letter and the keys on the keyboard remain faded out. Pause your typing, and the letters will fade back in. The fade-in speed can be set via the settings and users can also turn the Ghost Type keyboard off, via the settings or use a 'partial' setting. The app is also fully compatible with external keyboards.

Designed with education and classrooms in mind, users can also create, save and share lessons to suit specific curriculum, with complete control over the management of the lessons and profiles. To keep things fresh, users can enter Twitter and Facebook credentials and Ghost Write, a feature within Ghost Type, will have users practicing their typing in their Tweets and Facebook updates.

As a parent or teacher, you can lock the app into a restricted student mode and lessons cannot be created or deleted and profiles cannot be changed. Other options are available depending on your teacher or parent choices, including access to the Ghost Write function, home screen options and access to any or all external links.

With Ghost Type, you will discover that it's not that hard to gain speed and accuracy on the iPad keyboard.

"I think the ghost keyboard is a great idea. The look and feel is great; it's pretty intuitive to us. Multiple profiles, locking aspects of app are excellent ideas - teachers will really love that, especially teachers who don't have 1 to 1 iPads." Richard, Australian Teacher.
