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.

Send Article to a Friend

TidBITS editor in chief Tonya Engst joined the MacJury to talk about Apple’s 23 October 2012 announcement of the iPad mini and new Mac models, along with Dave Hamilton, Mark Fuccio, and Omaha Sternberg, plus host Chuck Joiner. Note that Glenn’s TidBITS article “How Apple “Doubled” iPad Wi-Fi Throughput“ (24 October 2012) has better information about the faster Wi-Fi speeds in the new iPad models than what was shared on the MacJury.Generic Globefollow link
