Windows 8 App To Increase Typing Speed: TYPING MASTER

TYPING MASTER is a free game app for Windows 8 and 8.1 devices which allows you to speed up your typing speed and skills by allowing you to choose from three different difficulty levels where you can practice and speed up your typing. The app is available as a free download, and has three levels – boxes level, bubbles level and the timer level. In the boxes and the bubbles level, you will be shown various letters on the screen which you have to press on the keyboard in a split second. If you get late, the letters become red and stay on the screen, and the letter which you press in time correctly disappear from the screen. At the end of the level, you can see which letters you pressed incorrectly. The timer level shows you various phrases that you have to type out and the faster that you type, the more points you get!

TYPING MASTER is available for free from the Windows App Store.

The game has three levels – BOXES GAME, BUBBLES GAME and TIMER GAME. When you click on the GO button next to the BOXES game, you will be shown the gameplay screen where certain letters will appear in boxes on your screen and you have to type those letters on your keyboard.
