One of the perks of doing the release notes for the upcoming KDE SC 4.10 is that you get to try a lot of new applications. One of the highlights of tonight’s webmonkeying certainly is KTouch. It’s actually been around for a while, now Sebastian Gottfried has taken it under his wings and modernized the user interface. KTouch welcomes the user and takes it through the lessons, I’ve got to say that it’s all works rather spiffy, easy to understand and quite fun to use.

The user interface is done in QML, it uses Plasma’s QML Components, transitions and subtle animations. The application also nicely presents statistics about your performance and progress, it guides, but doesn’t restrict the user. Well done. :)

The new version of KTouch will be available with the KDE Applications 4.10, to be released on February 6th.

    Very nice! Is it available in 4.9.98, this build?

  2. Thanks for the kind words.

    As a volunteer developer, user feedback (or developer feedback, in that case ;) ) is what keeps motivated to work on KTouch. So this is really appreciated :)

    Amazing work! :) I learned typing using KTouch and I know many will appreciate the improvements. I myself will as well, since I recommend it to friends and family, whenever someone asks.

    Thank you for all your efforts. :)
