App of the Week- Retro Edition

You love your smartphone. But sometimes you just want to type it out old school. Where there’s an app for that (actually two today), brought to you courtesy of Chris D.


Hanx Writer (iOS) and Typewriter (Android) turn your smartphone or tablet into an old fashioned typewriter. You can see the sheet of paper, the roller, and each key strike as you type. The paper moves across the screen just the way the carriage moves on a typewriter. And, at least on Typewriter, you even have authentic sounds of the key strikes and end of row ding.

Interesting fact…Hanx Writer is so named because it was developed by Tom Hanks. Apparently there’s more to the man than just acting!
