Hi guys,

Just released a new app called The Typist: Quick Typing Tests. As you may have guessed, it's a typing test app that measures your typing speed by having you type in excerpts from some famous books. The story: I was looking for something similar as my phone typing speed phone is atrocious (update: it's still atrocious, but now I can put a number on it). I couldn't find one that I liked, and decided to make one myself. It took about a month and a half.
