This writing app apes old-fashioned typewriters for a satisfying, fun way to
write on your iPad
So this is… surprising. This writing app apes typewriters for a satisfying, chunky way to write on your iPad, and was created by Tom Hanks. Yes, that one. In the words of the man himself: “With Hanx Writer, you’ll hear the rhythm of your work with SHOOK SHOOK or FITT-FITT.” So that’s nice.
You get the convenience of modern luxuries, such as a backspace key, and In-App Purchases give you some extra typewriter designs to play with. Perhaps best of all, it’s been carefully made to work with Bluetooth keyboards – grab a nice keyboard case and though the on-screen keyboard disappears the letters still ping in from the bottom, giving you even more of a physical typewriter feel. As much as we’ve poked fun, it’s really, really lovely.
