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.

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.

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!

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.

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?

It was my third year at college when I decided it was about time I learned to type. Enter TTTT. This was my first exposure to Dvorak keyboards, which I use to this day. How good is TTTT? I downloaded the latest version, which is much better looking, I must say, and took the assessment test. I thought 50 wpm would be a nice challenge. As it turns out, I was at 71, 0% errors. This program is so good I no longer need it. Now that's good software.

I think its most attractive feature is its free trial. In terms of instuction geared towards professional applications, there isn't any. It is geared for lowest common denominator with no prompt to advance beyond basic. And, I think its script , illustrations, games, are are obviously geared toward mind-control, setting intended programs, which I capably ignore and keep distant from my thoughts. But it seems plain that yet again, those who wish to avail themselves of inexpensive or free instruction, do so, at the risk of guinea-pigging themselves, subjecting their minds, focus, eyes, to wicked, occult agendas.

Great program, I use it at school. Kids love it and the new network savvy rear-end (updated from 2.2) makes it easy to group students in classes and monitor progress.

Just something I forgot to put in my other review, yes, Ten Thumbs also teaches QWERTY; that's just not what I use it for. =-)

I've been wanting to learn to type with the Dvorak keyboard layout for a long time but most of the typing tutors out there are pretty boring. I just found out about Ten Thumbs and it's great. They start out just teaching one key at a time and gradually add a key at a time. They have little games you can play and you can even choose which letters you want to do extra practice on, which has helped me a lot. I'm a pretty fast QWERTY typist so it's kinda confusing to learn a whole new setup but with Ten Thumbs, I always look forward to it. I strongly recommend Ten Thumbs Typing Tutor and the great thing about it is that you can learn the first 1/3 of the keys without registering so you can know if you really like it. You will, though, and the $25 you pay to register is well worth it.
