Who says they can't type on an iPad keyboard? Not us! Woody Jang, our US video editor, just set the Guinness World Record for fastest typing speed on an iPad. With one hand, he blazed out the alphabet in 3.93 seconds. The previous record was a snail's pace of 4.7 seconds.
Guinness arranged a cross-Atlantic battle between Gizmodo US and Gizmodo UK so that they could compete against each other to see who had the speediest, most nimblest fingers on an iPad. Despite the valiant effort of the Gizmodo UK staff (hi Kat!), no one was able to compete with the lightning bolt that is Woody Jang. Like literally no one in the world. He owns the world record for typing on an iPad now.
Giz Au Editor's Note: It's true, it's true. We had a crack at the record in our offices earlier in the week, and couldn't come close to Woody's blistering pace.
But of course, records are meant to be broken! The Guinness typing challenge requires a user to type the entire alphabet on an iPad as fast as they can, one-handed. If you think you can challenge Gizmodo, record yourself typing and upload your video to Guinness here. Pro tip: make up time by speeding through "fghijklmnop". Happy typing. We'll be waiting.
