This app lets iPhone typers compete worldwide to see who types the fastest. It's a cool idea, and I was excited, until I saw a list of the world leaders. Look at this:

322 words per minute huh? That's 5 words per second. That is absolutely ridiculous. According to Guinness, the world's fastest typer averages 150 WPM and topped out at 212 WPM, all on a computer keyboard of course. Whoever wrote this app left a serious loop hole for cheaters.

Letter, space, letter, space, letter, space?

The winner would be one who could play tiny bongo drums with their fingers the fastest.

As far as I can see, you're typing out full sentences.

They give you the sentence guys. You can't just figure out the easiest, shortest, all one-letter-word ungrammatical sentence and expect that to count. Once again, these 320 WPM people are boggling me mind, I don't know how they are doing it, i.e., how they are cheating.
