The Visual Typing method makes you a typing wizard on your iPhone or iPod Touch by teaching you where your thumb's hotspot is.

The fastest and most efficient way to type on the iPhone or iPod Touch is with both thumbs. Most people have trouble typing this way because their thumbs are so much bigger than the actual keys. Depending on your thumb size and shape, it is often a challenge to hit the right keys, even if you have good hand-eye coordination. The problem often occurs when the device registers your touch differently to where you thought it was.

Visual Typing shows you how the device "sees" your thumb. Through slow word drill exercises you learn to visualize and get a feel for your thumb's hotspot; the point on the thumb that is registered by the device as being the point of touch. With the fast quote exercises you can then apply your new knowledge by typing dictated quotes of famous people. Watch and see how quickly you progress by following your speed and accuracy statistics on graphs over time.

You will soon hit the keys much more accurately and confidently. Become a typing wizard!
