About Type For Fun

Although the App Store description has this app listed it as suitable for 17+ (we have no idea why!) this is a typing game suitable for complete beginners and the graphics are certainly more appealing to younger children. The user needs to type whole words before the aeroplane banner travels to the other end of the screen. The air speed can be increased as the user’s speed and accuracy improve. The words range from very simple (3 characters) to advanced (up to 11 characters). The latest score is displayed on screen and you can view a range of data including highest score and words per minute.
