Type It! is all about speed and quick fingers. It challenges (and hopefully improves) your texting abilities. Keyboard/phone orientation can be changed using the settings to use a horizontal or a vertical keyboard.
You have to touch and type as fast as you can to see if you can beat all levels. Your task is to type appearing words as fast as possible to score and collect all achievements. The faster you can handle the keyboard the more points you get. By playing this game you can improve your dexterity and reduce the number of errors while writing mails, texting SMS, and surfing the web. Try to be the fastest guy in the high score to see if you can compete with other players. It uses the standard Android 2.2 soft keyboard.
The game can be used as a training or tutor for typing words using the soft keyboard. It's a training game that should be real fun. Your texting speed and accuracy improves while playing and practicing.
This free game is part of our research about the touch performance on mobile devices and also part of my work as a PhD student. While users play the game we measure where they hit the screen and how fast they are. By combining this information with the position of the keyboard we can estimate how users touch each key. Based on this data we are hopefully able to predict user’s performance with different keys and character sequences. We plan to derive an according (probably personalized) model or tutorial. This model could possibly be used to improve the virtual keyboards of current smartphones. Thus, the game is fun and science at the same time. Check out the about screen to learn more.

Gotta love science that helps me text faster...
Give 5 if using keyboards
Reviews always say, "Oh this game is so addicting!". Same for Type It! The reason it only got 4 stars is because some of the words are not even words.
This game is really fun :)
