iColorType is a paid application for Apple's iPad, released on Apples’s iTunes on September 14, 2012. The App was developed by KEYRIGHT, the developers of the "Look & Learn Typing Solution", which was sold throughout the USA, Europe and Australia. iColorType allows development of motor skills, muscle memory and hand-eye coordination needed for proper typing.
iColorType color codes an iPad’s touch screen to identify the eight color-finger zones on all keyboards. It uses a patented color coding device (USPTO number: 6,850,225). iColorType develops motor skills, muscle memory and hand-eye coordination needed for touch typing.
iColorType includes the following features:
- Introductory Overview
- Typing Speed Test
- "Short Words" Lesson
- Full Lesson Plan
By using color coding on the standard QWERTY keyboard, user's brain naturally makes color associations, and learns which fingers use the appropriate letter, number and symbol keys. For example, the left-hand pinky finger uses all the red keys, and the right-hand pinky uses pink keys.
