Hanx Writer

The things you come across on NPR. Listening to an interview with Tom Hanks, yes, THE Tom Hanks... Turns out he's and avid collector of old manual typewriters.

His collection inspired him to work with a team to create an app called, "Hanx Writer". The app is a classic typewriter emulator. The sounds are authentic and it's pretty functional.

I fiddled around with this a bit, and it's super neat, super fun and I recommend playing with it.

As I write this, I realize I should have checked to see if it's available in multiple formats but I didn't, I can confirm the iPad app is available.
