Tom Hanks develops typewriter app for the Apple iPad
Hanx Writer is a free app, found in the Apple App Store. For $2.99 each, you can purchase additional fonts and sounds. If anyone knows about typewriters, it's Hanks. The actor once had a collection of typewriters that numbered 200. We wonder if he wrote "That Thing You Do" on one of those old models.
Even though Hanx Writer is supposed to replicate the sound, look and feel of using a typewriter, we are talking about modern technology after all. That means that the typewriter QWERTY on the app includes a delete key, and features auto-correct.
