How fast can you type on your phone? Idle Hands is the first-of-its-kind iPhone user challenge.

Check NOW if you belong to the top 10% of the world’s fastest virtual keyboard users. If you don’t do great at first, that’s OK. There are plenty of practice sessions and tips to help you get better. And you can enter into the monthly challenge as many times as you want. You can also save your scores locally and track your improvement from day to day.

Don’t let your hands be idle, become an expert iPhone user instead!

NOTE: To those who are wondering: all sentences are adapted from The Hitch Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. The December challenge will have a fun theme too. If you have a suggestion for a theme, write to us!

Developer’s note: We created Idle Hands so we could all get some typing practice and also have fun with the global challenge. We’d really appreciate it if everyone took the contest in the right spirit and played fair. Thanks!
