Daddy, What's a Typewriter?
Do you miss the sound of a typewriter?
Do you even know what a typewriter sounded like?
For those who went straight into the relatively silent era of keyboarding and completely missed the day of the typewriter - a frequently monstrous contraption that made a lot of noise as you pecked out the letters and dinged when you got to the end of the line so you could hit a lever that moved your paper back to a start point and began a new line - Tom Hanks has just the thing for you
Yes, that Tom Hanks. He invented an app for the iPad that mimics the look and sound of an old-style typewriter. The app is called Hanx Writer, and on the day it was introduced, it hit Number One.
If you feel like Tom, the app is free, so go grab it. There are optional features you can pay for, but if you just want to hear clackity-clack when you're writing away, get it now.
