"Tom Hanks can add ‘created most popular iPad app’ to his long list of accomplishments"

Usa gray

"Hanx Writer turns your iPad into an old-school manual typewriter. It replicates the thwack-thwack sound of metal stamping on paper and the ding-clunk-fripp of reaching the end of one line and starting a new one."

Cnet gray

"The world's love for Hanks extends to his love of typewriters as well"
