Rapid Typing Tutor 3.1.1
Learn to type like a pro Rapid Typing Tutor

Whatever you use your computer for, it is difficult to avoid doing at least some typing. Many jobs involve a great deal of typing and by learning to touch type you can greatly speed up your workflow and help to reduce the risk of repetitive strain injury.

There are a number of typing programs available for Windows, but they tend to be restrictively expensive - something that puts many people off trying them out. Rapid Typing Tutor is available completely free of charge and aims to make the learning process as much fun as possible. Designed with both children and adults in mind, a bright, colourful interface is used to present each of the tests.

A virtual keyboard is displayed on screen to indicate which fingers should be used to press which keys, and at the end of each test you will be presented with a results screen which shows you not only how fast you have been typing, but also your level of accuracy and what sort of rhythm you are using.

The tests get progressively more difficult and the use of a records board make the process of learning similar to playing a game - as well as learning to type faster and more accurately, there is also great pleasure to be gained from beating a personal best.
 

Verdict:

Proving that learning need not be an arduous tasks, Rapid Typing Tutor makes it easy and fun to improve your typing skills.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.19.120

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.19.120 

- Muted chats will no longer display notification badges on the app icon when you receive new messages.

- New alignment guidelines help you position stickers, emojis, and more when editing media.
