Why isn't it possible to have the Application in english language and use a QWERTZ keyboard layout at the same time? Just because I want to have it in english doesn't necessarily mean that I have a QWERTY keyboard. Poor. Anyway the german translation could be better.

Price information here needs to be updated. It is free to try. License is £16.95 and upgrade is £5.95. From their website: The latest version of Ten Thumbs Typing Tutor for Mac OS X, Windows and Linux is 4.7. The latest version of Ten Thumbs for Mac Classic is 3.4.1. - Upgrade Policy Your Ten Thumbs license entitles you to free upgrades to any version with the same main version number. So this means that if you buy a license for version 4.0 you are entitled to any of the future releases that come out under version 4 (e.g. 4.1).

Just started to try the demo. And within minutes stopped because it was impossible for me to correctly set it up. The program chose the Dutch screen/manual (OK, I do have the Dutch version of Mac OS X 10.6.3). So far so good. Then, however, I had to pick the correct keyboard. A choice of two Dutch keyboards: the one with Dutch QWERTY or with Dutch (Flemish) AZERTY layout. It became clear that the program is not up-to-date, since the keyboard layout differed too much (e.g. the Return key) from the current Apple keyboards (mine is from last year, a Dutch chicklet-style keyboard with numerical block. To make trying out this program comfortable enough, users should be able to pick the correct keyboard layout. Hopefully the developer will have a closer look at current layouts and add these to the preferences. What I do like about this program is the help with correct finger position. A program like aTypeTrainer4Mac still doesn't have this possibility, as far as I know.

Version 5.0 must be just around the corner, if a company owner/employer is now responding 3 years after the earlier comments on their upgrade policies --- preparing existing owners for the new release --- lol Three years is a good stretch for a paid upgrade ... as long as those who purchase now don't get hit with the upgrade fee if 5.0 is released a month or 2 from now.

As this product moves into the X.2 stage, be leary of purchasing it. Last year, I bought a site license for 3.2. A couple of months later, they intoduced 4.0 and still wanted big bucks for the upgrade. Rather than having a guaranteed free upgrade period, they were more interested in generating new revenue. Perhaps a roadmap of planned releases should be in order so unsuspecting customers do not find themselves with an older version as son as they drive it of the lot!

Huh? You're mad because they're trying to make money on an upgrade? They should work to make their software better, but then give it to you for free, just because you bought it recently? If you bought an iBook a few weeks ago, did you expect a free MacBook when it came out? Come on, they're *supposed* to be interested in making a profit. That's what we call running a business. And define "big bucks". I mean, are they charging hundreds of bucks for this product? What's interesting is that you've made no comment about the actual quality of the product. So instead, I will. I am a touch typist, and it's because of this product. I used, I think, version 2, never upgraded, and never needed to. TTTT is very good at what it does, and I highly recommend it.

Just to add to the information available, the upgrade cost for an existing Ten Thumbs license holder is $8.95. Hardly big bucks. We only charge this for upgrades between major version numbers, ie version 3.x to 4.x.

This is simply the best eLearning application I have ever seen. The learning curve is going up so quickly and the makers have done a very good job to ease the pain of rehearsing thru very positive motivating text. A perfect learning environment which is tailor-made for the very user. Perfect.

I bought this program for a friend who needed to learn typing for a college course he was taking. It worked wonders for him; he even refreshes his skills with it to this very day. I purchased it probably 1 to 1 1/2 years ago, and have since lost the license code. It seems you cannot retrieve it from the application itself, and you need it to upgrade. I'm not sure what the developer's is on upgrades: it may be that a new license has to be purchased, for all I know. For months, I've emailed the developer several times, to no avail. I'm not looking for a specific answer (although it'd be nice if my older license could be used to upgrade), but just an answer, in general. In cognito developers--not good.

I'm sorry to hear you had difficulty contacting us. We do reissue codes to anyone who has lost one - free of charge, and we respond to every email we are sent. However sometimes our replies do not get through due to spam filtering software. Try emailing us again and provide a different address to reply to, or a phone number. Thanks.

Ten Thumbs is a very, very nice and useful app. but still lacks implemantation of long promised non-english keyboards. Shame! Worse: the "3.2" version still turns out to be version 3.1. Summer asphyxia?
