iPhoneTypingTest.com (http://www.iphonetypingtest.com/) provides you with a simple way to test how fast you can type on your iPhone keyboard.

Tapping the text entry field gives you a phrase to type. Pressing "Done" on your iPhone keyboard completes the test and gives you your words per minute speed.

You have to do it in portrait mode...but i got around 30-33 words per minute using two fingers with 1-3 mistakes. I am around 60-80 on a real keyboard.

Mistakes are ok because iphone corrects them Except in safari(you are on your on in safari.) EDIT- Not true- It is correcting now...Not sure why not before.

I suppose you mean 60-80 words per minute on a real computer keyboard? How fast are you on a smartphone with hardware keys?

30 wpm with the sound off. Yes, it actually matters, at least to me. Also, not sure why people are saying it doesn't correct your mistakes - it fixed mine without any problem at all...

It seems I am a pretty quick typist. Obviously done on a windows PC but 1535 wpm must be a world record.

Pretty impressive.

Anyone else think a post about typing proficiency with a typographical error in the title is pretty hilarious?

edit: it used to say "Test You iPhone Typing Speed"

Yeah...if you just click the blue field on a normal computer and then click anywhere outside of it then it does that. The only thing that tests is how fast you can click...which means you're excruciatingly slow.

Your keyboard must be on fire, but i actually typed the sentence out and i took longer than the time given, so not sure how accurate the test is, but then again it was designed to work in Safari on the iPhone rather than IE7 on windows XP SP2

I got 50 typing my milk shake brings all the boys to the yard, but the keyboard was kinda faulting out like it couldn't process the information fast enough.

Well my computer keyboard typing isn't that great (42wpm). But my iPhone typing was 38wpm. Maybe I should try holding my computer keyboard in my hands and typing with my thumbs on that too :p

Neat, tool. I'd like to see the test last for at least one full minute to be more accurate about your typing speed. Interpolating a full minute's rate based on one sentence isn't as accurate as it could be. I realize this is just a fun little app and not a real test.

you guys are pretty fast, I only got 25 wpm and I was trying pretty hard too. haha

Yeah, landscape mode I got average of 45-50 wpm. I tried the portrait(is that holding it vertical?) and I got average of 35 wpm.
You can obviously type faster in landscape then.
Another reason why Apple needs to make landscape keyboard for all Apps that use keyboard.

I took it three times and got between 31 and 33 wpm each time. That's not too bad! Definitely faster than T9 on my old phone!

I am getting 30-35 using one or two fingers, with only a little use of autocorrect with two-finger entry. On the other hand, I struggle to get over 20 using the 2 thumbs approach, and the autocorrect doesn't do a very good job of correcting the mistakes. I'd love it if someone put together a little video on typing technique because I must be doing something seriously wrong to be so slow with my thumbs.

the slowest i've gotten is 37, and the fastest is 44 words per minute. strangely, the 37 rate had an error where the 44 didn't. :p

I tried this typing test when it first came out. I originally scored around 23 wpm. This time around i got 32 wpm with no errors. Good enough for me.

I don't need a test to tell you my speed - SLOW AS A WET WEEK! :p

I'm hopeless at high speed typing on the iPhone.
