Tom Hanks has found a way to merge his love of old school technology with new. Meet the Hanx Writer!
As a fan of the typewriter, Tom's app will provide the typewriting experience without the whole cumbersome physical machine part.
The sounds of typing on a manual typewriter will be heard, and it will have a delete key unlike a traditional typewriter.
Hanks personally owns 200 typewriters and prefers the machine to modern technology.
Last summer, Hanks wrote about his love for the typewriter in The New York Times.
"The sound of typing is one reason to own a vintage manual typewriter — alas, there are only three reasons, and none of them are ease or speed. In addition to sound, there is the sheer physical pleasure of typing; it feels just as good as it sounds, the muscles in your hands control the volume and cadence of the aural assault so that the room echoes with the staccato beat of your synapses."
To hear the sounds, the basic app is free, but the upgraded version will cost $2.99. Hanx Writer is already at the top of the iTunes App Store ranking number one in both the Productive section and Overall.
Showing his age, Tom Hanks talks about being a grandfather in the video below.
