Type Faster by Competing in Races

A fun way to improve your typing speed and accuracy is to join an online typing competition at typrX. This typing competition keeps track of your typing speed, while allowing you to compete against other people, either around the world in public races or with friends in private races. To set up a private race with your friends, follow these simple steps.

  • Once you have a typrX account, click the Create Private Race button on the front page and you’ll be taken to the private race page.
  • From there, copy the track code URL and send it to the friends you want to join the race.
  • You can click the Delay Countdown button to add 10 seconds to the clock if you are waiting on your friend to join the race.

LogMeIn Ignition 2.0.264

Send Article to a Friend

We generally restrict the TidBITS Watchlist to Mac software, but the 2.0.264 release of LogMeIn Ignition is worth a shout because of how it integrates with the Mac. This update to the iOS remote screen control app adds remote file browsing to its bag of tricks. LogMeIn requires a free account, and then a free or paid installation of software on the Macs or Windows systems you want to control. Ignition’s update lets you browse through files, copy them to your device, view them (if in one of iOS’s supported formats), and print them. You can also transfer files between two computers in your LogMeIn account using the app. ($29.95 new, free update, 9.8 MB)

I've been using Log Me In and it is fabulous. You can remotely access your desktop and work from it as though you were sitting in front of it. No more lugging around the heavy PC laptop when traveling!
