09/10/2010, With so many apps out there, you often bump into a really strange one, and the Finger Race would probably fall into that category. This app is designed to be a mini-treadmill to give your fingers a workout, letting your fingers race for the fastest times in events such as the 1 meter and 2 meter dashes, or even the 5 meter dash.
