Tom Hanks Typewriter App Makes Typing On Your iPad Way More Fun [VIDEO]

Tom Hanks loves typewriters so he backed the development of this iPad app that simulates one.

The number one selling app in iTunes right now is Tom Hanks “Hanx Writer” and I can see why. I don’t own an iPad. I’m just not a fan of Apple products for reasons I might tell you another time.

My dad used to have a manual typewriter that I loved using when I was a kid. Something about the sound of those hammers moving up to hit the paper was really cool. Dad didn’t like it too much when I would press ten keys at once to try to jam all the hammers. I’m guessing the app won’t let you do that.

The app is free, but you can buy different styles of typewriters for it. Do you have the Hanx Writer? Try it out and let us know what you think in the comments below or on Facebook and Twitter.
