    Well I thought this might be fun to see how fast people can type on there iPhone. I am sorry if this has already been done but I have been traveling for the last two months out of the country and haven't had time to get to this site.

    Well this is the test. Everyone go to there notes and type ten lines of text and time yourself. Please don't lie an actually type something that actually says something. I typed something like this. (this is a test to see how fast I can type on the iPhone.) I think it would be cool to see if in a couple of months if are times change. And don't just type the same thing over and over again.

    Tell me what your times are with ten lines of text!

    Net test

    There is a iPhone Web App to test your speed:

    Touch the blue box to start. The text to type appears in the yellow box. The "done" button actually says "clear." When you press it it will give you your speed in wpm.

    not a very good test considering you are only typing one sentence and based on that, the system is calculating your "words per minute". It should throw you many sentences and count down to a minute and see how many words you have correctly typed during that minute timeframe.

    You made error(s) but you typed 9.4 words in 14.094 seconds, a speed of about 40 words per minute!

    typed than instead of then, so that was my error.

    doesn't seem like its exactly correct, depends on the sentence n all but then again i do text a lot and type pretty quick with my thumbs.

    Well i tryed the link at the top and i got 28 words per minute out of 11words. I don't know but i think if we all type the same thing we might see actuals. I mean each word has a different amount of letters so it could come back with different readings each time. So why don't we al try typing (this is a test to see how fast i can type on my iPhone)?

    one of my sentences: My milkshake brings all the boys to the yard.

    i could not type because of all the laughing that ensued after reading..:mad:

    and i think this test is pretty much useless since the sentences vary from MANY words, to 6 words.

    i mean it could still come up with an average but you have to into concideration that the longer the sentence, the more likely you are to mess up.

    My sentence: I type faster with my thumbs than with my nose.
    My scoring: You perfectly typed 9.4 words in 15.303 seconds, a speed of about 37 words per minute! Great job!

    I guess the advantage to the app is that there are many sentences you could be required to type (not sure how many), which is more a real world typing test. When there is a single benchmark sentence and you know what's coming, the problem is that part of our improvement is becoming skilled at taking the test, not just the typing itself.

    i just think it's funny that that was something they put in there to type. Seems really random to me. And then look at what I had to type. Funny.
