If you miss the sweet clicking sounds of your fingers as they press into the keys of a typewriter, followed by the ever familiar “ding” of reaching the end of a line, we’ve found just the guy to help you out: Tom Hanks.
We’re guessing a lot of people don’t know that Hanks’ is a huge fan of typewriters. He started collecting them back in 1978, so he has some credibility,
amirite right? (Sorry, darn sticky keys). In fact, the movie star loves ’em so much, he’s come out with his own iPad app called “Hanx Writer.” The app replicates all the beloved noises typewriter lovers yearn for.
Although the app just launched on August 19, it would appear that its nostalgia appeals to the masses: Hanx Writer is currently ranked as the top free app on the iTunes App Store and has a stellar rating of 4.5 stars already.
So, if you want all the bells and whistles that come with a typewriter without having to carry that heavy thing around, this app is the perfect thing for you.
