Productivity Hack

You may not realize it, but pretty much everything you do with your computer is based around typing. Creating a spreadsheet? You will need to fill out the cells. Checking something with Google? You have to type out a search term. Of course, every email and report also requires typing.

Typesy teaches you how to type faster, meaning you can complete these tasks in half the time. You learn through simple exercises, fun games and concise video tutorials, created by typing experts. You only need to practice for a few minutes each day, and Typesy provides a personalized learning experience.

The software is available to download on Windows, Mac, Linux, and Chrome, with cloud syncing between platforms. Once you finish the course, you can even claim an advanced typing certificate — a nice addition to any résumé.
