    I want to post a little geek competition. I am a fairly new Palm OS developer, one of my first programs is TEXTTUTORPRO. This is a a learning application for text entry/ typing (on a wireless keyboard). My application also calculates text entry/typing speed.

    The Competition:
    I will award the person who can record the fastest typing/ text entry on their Treo 650 a free registration key for my software. To prove your typing speed, you will need to post a screen shot of your typing speed on the results screen when you finish a level (I do not care which level). There are several palm applications that do screenshots. A freeware program that does screenshots is Snap. It can be found here:

    And at many other places on the web.

    My software can be downloaded here:

    Good luck. May the best geek win!

    I tried the Home Row exercise and couldn't pass it because of the semicolon. Couldn't exit either and had to reset the phone.

    I updated the software eliminating the semicolon to better accomadate Treo users, who do not have easy access to this key. I also added a few new features. It is true that when you are in speed scroll mode you can not exit with the home key. As the instructions say, simply type "exit" to return to the main menu.

    Happy texting,

    Ha, sorry about that, guess I should have RTFM. I thought I saw something like that but by that time I was stuck.

    Thanks I'll try again!

    BTW for some reason the TEXTTUT... icon is shifted to the left and hangs over into the margin. Looks kind of funny.

    dpuza,

    Can you send me a screen shot of when "it looks funny". I am currently using a LiifeDrive and I have not been able to test this program on the Treo 600.

    Thanks,
    Nevin

    Competition is still open, but I don't know if anyone can beat 55 words per minute by cesium1024. Are you kidding! I can only get about 35 words per minute on my LifeDirve with an external keyboard!

    Heres the links again if you want to try:

    I'm slightly guilty for using a RIM 850 for so long, I've already told my wife that should my fingers ever be cut off I want a Serial/PS2 interface for that thumboard for a computer. On a 104 key US keyboard I actually can type 104WPM with a ~90% accuracy.

    I still don't know how you can enter data that quickly with your thumbs.
