Tom Hanks' typewriter app No 1 on Apple iTunes
Thursday August 21, 2014 10:48 AM, IANS

Actor Tom Hank's recently-launched typewriter app for iPad has become the leading app at the Apple iTunes App Store.

Called “Hanx Writer”, it is now ranked No 1 in both the productivity as well as overall section.

“Hanx Writer” turns your iPad into an old-fashioned typewriter, offering a pseudo-analog typing experience.

The bangs of key presses, hard returns and the chimes that sound when you reach the end of a new line are an enjoyable experience for users, Techcrunch reported.

The free app offers an on-screen keyboard or pairs with your Bluetooth keyboard so you can pretend you are not typing on plastic keys.

You can also choose the typewriter to match your sound signature.

“I wanted to have the sensation of an old manual typewriter - 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… I wanted the 'report' of each letter, each line,” Hank wrote on Apple's Twitter account.
