What kind of app do you think the Oscar-winning star of "Forrest Gump," "Saving Private Ryan" and "Turner & Hooch" would make if he could?
Would it be a virtual box of chocolates where you'd never know what you're going to get? Would it be a piano app you could play with your feet? Or perhaps an innovative new email app called "You've Got Mail?"
Nope, nope and nope.
Tom Hanks' new app is called Hanx Writer, and it's a word processing app that makes your iPad sound like a typewriter while you're typing. That's it!
I thought the only code Tom Hanks knew was the da Vinci code, but he's really made a splash with this app. It could be the next big thing if it doesn't get cast away by users for being extremely loud and incredibly annoying at coffee shops.
This app is no money pit: You can catch it if you can for free at The App Store.
