Download the trial version of TypeIt
TypeIt is covered by an ironclad 30-day money-back warranty – if you’re not happy with it for any reason, you can get a problem-free refund here.
If you would still prefer to get a basic idea of how TypeIt works before ordering, you can download the trial version of the app here. Please note that the trial version offers limited functionality and can be used for a limited time only.
Main limitations of the trial version:
- displays a pop-up message every couple of characters
- does not include upper-case letters or the ʒ symbol
- will stop working after 14 days of use (days when you don’t type anything don’t count)
- may be used for evaluation purposes only (no commercial use)
Windows and/or your anti-virus software (e.g. Norton, Symantec, Avast) may display scary-looking warnings when you download TypeIt:
Why does this happen? Every time you download an app, these solutions check whether other users have downloaded it before. If an app has only been seen by a small number of users, it will be automatically classified as risky. This is more or less like saying: “I don’t know what this is, so I’ll assume it’s bad”.
Because TypeIt is not as widely used as, say, Photoshop, every time a new version of TypeIt comes out, it takes weeks before enough users download it to make anti-virus software recognize it as a legitimate app.
Another (less common) reason why some anti-virus software may view TypeIt as suspicious is that it intercepts your keystrokes, which is a behavior displayed by some types of malicious software – for example, some types of malware may hook into your keyboard to capture passwords. TypeIt needs to tap into your keyboard to detect your keystrokes, but does not store or transmit the text you type in any way.
