Simply called the Hanx Writer, this app created by Tom Hanks is nothing more than a digital version of a typewriter, complete with ding! sound. The app is currently number one in the iTunes app store. Considering the article goes on length about Hanks' love for typewriters, it leaves a bitter-sweet taste that additional options for the app have to be purchased through it.

[...]Unlike real typewriters, however, this version has a handy delete key. The app is free, though users can purchase different colors, texts and styles.

On the app’s welcome screen, Hanks explains how he became a collector of typewriters: “I write without caring about typeovers, XXXX’d out words, goofy syntax, & bad spelling because the feel & sound of a typewriter is satisfying in ways that couldn’t be matched — Until now!”
