Our Review:

In the unorthodox corner, we have Stamina Typing Tutor. It was by far the funniest typing program I have ever used and probably ever will. When you make a typing mistake, you get an annoying taunt. Some of my favorites are "oye!","uh-oh" and, "I'll be back" (from The Terminator) when you exit the program.

Along with its funniness, Stamina Typing Tutor contains some very cool features. The text scrolls like Rapid Typing Tutor, but in this case, it feels much more smooth. You will definitely notice the difference if you have used other typing tutors with side scroll. Stamina also has a fair lesson layout including the basics, digits, symbols, phrases and a few more. If you don't like any of the default lessons, you can make your own using the built-in lesson editor.

Another impressive element is that you can customize the background with your own images! You probably noticed I used a fallout 3 wallpaper ;) Stamina also has background music. Everyone knows typing to techno music is the best tempo to use whilst typing! The songs play on a playlist, so you can pick and choose which songs you want to play including any songs you might have in the mp3 format.

To wrap it up, the interface is user-friendly and looks superb. The only feature Stamina Typing Tutor doesn't possess is virtual hands, but I find this is a marginal issue because most people don't need virtual hands to type any faster than they normally do. I would recommend Stamina Typing Tutor as the best typing program for users who already have some basic typing skills.
