Following in the footsteps of Kim Kardashian, Tom Hanks just became the latest celebrity to release his very own iPad app.

Called the ‘Hanx Writer,’ the iPad app is a new, modern take on a manual typewriter that mimics the old-school look and  clackity-clack sound, but with modern conveniences like a ‘delete’ key.

“With Hanx Writer, you’ll hear the rhythm of your work with SHOOK SHOOK or FITT-FITT,” Hanks said in a press release.

An avid collector and user of manual typewriters himself, the Hanx Writer is close to the actor’s heart, and the best part about the app is it’s free. However, there are upgrades like color ribbons that are available for purchase.
