Are you a hunt-and-peck typist, or do you keep your hands on the home row at all times? Either way, I'll bet you could get more done if you could just type a little faster.

Amphetype is a free tool to help you improve the speed and accuracy of your typing. As you practice, it gives you feedback on your progress, not only telling you how fast you're going, and how accurately you type, but it even looks at your "viscosity"—the amount of time you spend hesitating between characters as you type.

You can make your practice sessions more interesting by choosing the text you want to practice on. Rather than just using some canned text for practice, go grab something you're interested in from Project Gutenberg and read a book by typing it.

Amphetype is a Windows application.
