Hitcents is proud to announce that the Hanx Writer has been selected for inclusion in the App Store Best of 2014! Apple’s iTunes and App Store lists include editorial picks for the best releases in apps, music, movies, TV shows, books, and podcasts from 2014. The Hanx Writer is featured as a best app for iPad, among other such honorees as Pixelmator, Storehouse and Hearthstone.
Developed in close collaboration with Tom Hanks, Hanx Writer went through many iterations until it was ready for consumers. Tom sent over three vintage typewriters from his personal collection to use as inspiration when creating the Hanx Writer custom typewriters and fonts.
The Hanx Writer initially launched on the iPad earlier this year and has continued to evolve. The App was completely retooled to support the iPhone 5, 6, and 6 Plus, as well as adding support to use the typewriter keyboards apps like notes, messages, and mail. Documents can be emailed, printed, shared, and wireless keyboards are supported.
"We're incredibly grateful to the many people that have been supportive of the Hanx Writer. The community’s response really made this project rewarding and being included in the App Store Best of 2014 was both a surprise and an honor. The team put in a lot of care and hard work to make the Hanx Writer what it is today. Adding the keyboard extension really opened up the Hanx Writer experience." said Stuart Westphal, VP of Games and Interactive at Hitcents.
Hitcents's strong commitment to innovative and quality products with excellent user experiences can be seen in the Hanx Writer and in their other award winning products like Draw a Stickman: EPIC.
