Studies have proven that typists are 32% less effective when learning touch typing on their own. Ratatype's Friends area is specially developed to track progress and compare standings and certification results with Facebook friends, making it easy and productive to learn touch typing with the help of friends.

Simplicity, usability, and good design are significant parts of Ratatype's appeal to a broad audience of computer users. Ratatype's design ethos is apparent in the vivid colors, smooth typography and illustrations that were handcrafted by the creator of Twitter's original bird logo.

"The majority of typing tutors look awful," said Artur Mikhno, one of the developers at Ratatype.
"It is either dated piece of software from 'stone age' times or poorly designed online service bloated with ads. And of course all of them are missing friends functionality. We decided to put an end to this situation. And that's why we built Ratatype, an amazing social online typing tutor. By the way, it's free for everyone."
