Tom Hanks Creates iPad App Inspired by the Typewriter
The Oscar-winning actor develops the Hanx Writer, which makes typewriter sounds when users tap on the virtual tablet keyboard
Here's a fact that you may not know about Tom Hanks. The man loves old-school typewriters. So much so that he has now launched an iPad app, Hanx Writer, which turns writing on iPad into a digital yet analog typewriting experience.
The app emulates what it is like to type on a typewriter, complete with the sound of clackety keys, the metal hammer stamping out the words and the ding when you reach the end of the page. It even slides back to the beginning of the next line as a real typewriter would.
