    Actor Tom Hanks has released a quirky ipad app, that makes users touchscreens look like an old typewriter, right down to the holder for the 'ribbon' in front of the screen!

    ' "What's pleasing to my sensibilities is when you have the report of the key being struck; it allows for clear thinking," the actor tells USA TODAY, noting that his collection of typewriters once numbered 200. No telling what Mrs. Hanks, Rita Wilson, thought of that. '

    The app's designer, Stuart Westphal of Hitcents, the folks behind the Draw A Stickman game, says the double Oscar-winner's mandate was simple.
    "He mainly said, 'Don't make it gimmicky,'.

    The good news is, the app's free. The not-so - bad news is, the extra clunks cost a few dollars.
