Should Tom Hanks just get a Mechanical Keyboard?
20 August 2014
If you think Tom Hanks isn’t up to date on technology because every time you hear his name you think, “WILSON!!” you might want to reconsider.
Tom Hanks recently launched a trendy app for the iPad called Hanx Writer and unsurprisingly it has shot to the top of the iTunes App Store ranking No.1 in the Productivity section.
The typewriter styled app comes with some satisfying sounds as you come to the end of the line and just as you type the “shook shook” just brings back memories.
The app comes with some in-app purchases such as premium typewriters and along with that are features like text-alignment, background colours, title pages and fonts.
"For less important doodles in text, the kind that go no further than your desk or refrigerator door, the tactile pleasure of typing old school is incomparable", Hanks wrote.
"Everything you type on a typewriter sounds grand, the words forming in mini-explosions of shook shook shook. A thank-you note resonates with the same heft as a literary masterpiece."
At Mwave however that “shook shook” sound is kind of a “chit chit” sounds and instead of coming through an app it comes from the PC.
So if the app isn’t for you check out our mechanical keyboard range and get that “chit chit” sound we’re talking about, every time you're on your PC
