Tom Hanks releases typewriter app for iOS and everyone loves it
Popular actor Tom Hanks has released a typewriter app for iOS, dubbing the application "Hanx Writer."

The app "recreates the experience of a manual typewriter, but with the ease and speed of an iPad," reads its bio, and iPhone and iPad users appear to love it.

As of writing, the app has 1137 ratings, at 4.5 stars out of 5.

Hanks, who is well known to love writing on old-school typewriters, explains why he built the app, which is really just a cool gimmicky word processor: "I wanted the sound of typing if nothing else... cause I find it's like music that spurs along the creative urge. Bang bang clack-clack-clack puckapuckapuckapucka..."

Try the app here.

    Why does it have to be just for stupid iOS? Delete/backspace anyone?

    Its a lot easier being righteous than right.

    There are other Apple apps that do this, as well as similar Android apps. The thing that I don't get is Tom Hanks' grammar in making one simple sentence into several sentences.

    The Future. Will be written. On a #HanxWriter. This I vow. It's Free!

    What's that about?
