Neat idea, but needs a bit more
I definitely get the goal of this app--to create the classic typewriter experience. The thing is, even before the days of computers, there were ways to fix mistakes when typing. White-Out, correction tape, I even remember ink that could be erased with a pencil eraser. So, while this app succeeds in replicating the abstract experience of using an old typewriter, the reality was different from what we get from this app. In other words, a delete-character option would be a welcome addition. Hey, you could even do it in the form of a correction tape option or something similar. For now, it's just too frustrating to use. Great idea, though.
Much better than the rest ...
A very well designed app. Contrary to that In-app-purchase extravaganza of the Hanx Writer, this one does what it says on the tin. And it does that with a vengeance. So to all those naysayers out there: This app is a toy, it's supposed to be fun. It's not a tool, even if it sometimes feels like it. Any Word processor can replicate the look of a typewriter, so why should one need an app for that?! Use this app to be creative, and enjoy the workflow. It's great!
Now, if they could make an iPad version and add some decent export options (hires png maybe?), this is a winner.
As someone who grew up learning how to type on a typewriter, this app brought a genuine smile to my face. Too many people complain about not being able to delete their mistakes on this. Welcome to our world, princess. Now that Facebook and Twitter have turned lazy spelling into an art form, it actually brings me pleasure to see so many people getting frustrated by having to do things right. Thank you.
