Actor Tom Hanks has released his first iPad app which is an accurate recreation of three manual typewriters. It could have easily been a gimmicky app that is used once or twice, but this is something different. The attention to detail and the overall aesthetic of Hanx Writer makes this an app you’ll enjoy typing with for hours on end.

Tom Hanks worked with Stuart Westphal of Hitcents to create the app and the end result is remarkable. Tom Hanks has a self-disclosed obsession with traditional typewriters, telling USA Today that his collection once held 200 typewriters.


“I suppose some people who get the app may just be looking for a different sound, but really it’s for people searching for a more personalized experience when writing on an iPad,” he says. “There’s also the opportunity here to take your iPad to a coffee house and be really obnoxious with all the clickety-clacking.”


As you might imagine there is very little you can do to customize Hanx. Here is a list of included and extra features:



Hanx Prime Select (free typewriter)
Hanx 707 ($2.99)
Hanx Jolden Touch ($2.99)
Alternate background colors
Black Ribbon
Red Ribbon (included in Writer’s block bundle)
Blue Ribbon (included in Writer’s block bundle)
PDF export options

Here’s a video demonstrating all of the free and purchase options:



Developer Stuart Westphal tells USA Today:


“He mainly said don’t make it gimmicky, so it had to work with a Bluetooth keyboard, which is really where you get the full effect of seeing a blank white page slowly fill with black type,” says Westphal, noting that the partnership with Hanks was spearheaded through a connection with Creative Artists Agency in Los Angeles. “Tom wanted people to want to sit down and write a poem or screenplay with it.”

Hands-on with Marvel Contest of Champions, the comic-battling beat-'em-up

Wolverine is punching Iron Man in the face. Adamantium slashes, repulsors are fired. It's a big super hero comic book scrap and I'm in control of it.

Everything looks gorgeous. Logan's big hairy arms are all bouncy and angry, and Tony Stark's suit glints in the light of some alien sun.

Do you remember seeing all those spy movies where the lead actor takes out a tiny device from his pocket to capture the plans of the enemy?


Your iPhone 6 camera is capable of doing something like that. Not to that extend, but it has the ability to do more than just take snaps.


Scanner Pro by Readdle is an app that lets you scan high quality document including paper notes, whiteboards, receipts, and other multipage documents. The scanned documents can be uploaded to cloud s

ervices and can be emailed as well.


How to use Scanner Pro for iOS 8

After downloading and installing Scanner Pro on your device, you get to scan documents in batches. Each batch is displayed at the top of the app. You can create folders to put the batches in, and once a batch of scans has been completed, it can be uploaded to several online services.


Scanner Pro


When it comes to scanning, you can take an image inside the app, or import an image from the camera roll. The latter option is an advantage if you have existing document photos, so you can still use the app for them.


Scanner Pro automatically tries to make a scanned image straight. But it does give the user tools to tweak the image; this can be done by dragging the four blue dots to a corner. The app provides a zoomed image on the side so you can move the blue dots at the right spots. After you’ve adjusted the four sides, you can move on to the next step.


The app also automatically adjusts the back text and white background, making the text as sharp as it can. The user can adjust the contrast and brightness manually by taping at the top left button. The button at the top right can be used to rotate the image. Also, you can set the document type to greyscale, photo or document.


Scanner Pro


Once the scan s created, there are several options on what can be done with it. Single scans can be saved to the camera roll, and documents can be printed through networked printers. Scanner Pro also lets you open InstaShare and Evernote, and has built-in support for uploading to WebDAV server, Google Docs, Evernote and Dropbox.


Final thoughts

Readdle’s Scanner Pro offers everything you need to convert your iPhone 6 into a heavy duty scanner. The developer has uploaded it for iOS 8 compatible devices and has added several exclusive features such as the use of Touch ID to protect the scans and iCloud Drive Support.


Scanner Pro is currently available to download at the limited price offer of $2.99. Let us know if you give it a try.

September saw the arrival of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus as well as the new iOS 8 software from Apple. At the iPhone 6 event we caugh a glimpse of the new integrated contactless payment system which has been called Apple Pay. We knew we wouldn't have this feature in iOS 8 when it was released but according to a new report, Apple Pay is to

roll out with iOS 8.1.

According to those at Bank Innovation, iOS 8.1 is to be made available to the public on the 20th of October and as well as getting a number of enhancements, it will also be focused on getting Apple Pay up and running. Both the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus have been kitted out with NFC radios especially for this feature, and with Apple Watch also set to integrate with the system when it comes on stream next year, it is critical that Apple introduce Apple Pay with as few issues as possible.

As we discovered earlier this week, Apple is switching up its iOS release schedule this time and it now looks like iOS 8.1 is going to be arriving just five weeks after the initial roll out. We have also heard that iOS 8.2 and iOS 8.3 are also in being worked at as we speak. We know that the 20th of October is also when Apple will be holding their second major event and this time they will be showcasing the new iPad Air and iPad mini with Retina display. Both of these are going to benefit from Apple's A8 processor as well as Touch ID, and we might also see a gold configuration in the offering. The showcase for iPads always seem to be in October but we could see a lot more being put on the agenda this year. OS X Yosemite just hit Golden Master, and should be coming out around that time too and with the notion of a 5K Retina iMac and new Mac mini also doing the rounds, it looks like October could be a very busy month where Apple is concerned.

Have you updated to the latest iOS 8? Are you looking forward to the introduction of Apple Pay? Be sure to let us know what your thoughts are in the comments below.

If you’re like most people I know your attempt to go digital with everything has failed. Sure, it was easy to transition to digital music and photos, digital movies was easy once bandwidth made it acceptable, and reading has been a hit as well. Many of us have tried to make our todo’s, notes, scribbles, and post-it notes digital too. In some instances we’ve succeeded,

but the biggest failure with people I know, and myself, is with sticky notes. Post-it brand notes has released an app that just might change that.


The problem in going digital with sticky notes is that it’s harder. It’s harder to get out a device, swipe it open, go to the app, load the app, tap the + to add a note, and then write it down with my finger (or stylus if I happen to have one nearby). It’s just so much more convenient to simply take a pad, write it down, and be done. The analog version also has the great addition of adhesive to stick it places…allowing me to place the reminder right in my line of sight for the place I will need it. The sticky note lets me do so much with so little. It’s a super easy tool to start using…

The one thing it doesn’t do however, is keep things organized. My desk often looks like a sea of neon paper. Scribbles and phone numbers and small lists. It’s a mess. I’ve attempted to use Evernote’s digital system with my notes, and it works really well, but it’s actually “too much”. Not everyone wants a huge ecosystem and robust handling of something that’s supposed to be simple, and that’s how it feels to me. So, that’s where this little Post-it Notes app comes in…


The app is very simple to use. Write your Post-it’s, snap a picture using the app, and sort, move, share, zoom, collaborate, and more. The app is capable of capturing up to 50 notes at a time…so just grabbing all of those from the day before I leave my desk has been working fine.


If you’re a post-it note junkie…and have failed going digital before, or maybe never thought to even try…now is the perfect time to give it a shot!
