YUP I miss typewriters. With that bar you slide to the left. There is something Hunter S. Thompson had said about having re-written Hemingway. Just to feel how it must to write like that. So he did. Verbatim.

Does NOT work as advertised I followed Instructions for the install of the app and did EXACTLY as the developer states on the google play site, APP does NOT work PERIOD. I went to settings and "Language and Key Board" on Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.4 selected Typwriter Keyboard, and kept tapping the "Back" button screen by screen until I returned to Home screen, went into Text "Messages" and NO Keyboard. REMEDIAL ACTION the process was re-done over and over and NO Typewriter Keyboard. I think either ist NOT compatible with Android Operating System 4.0.4 ICS OR a outdated app Its ONLY 99 cents so its NOT a big loss for me though essentially it was wasted money for me.
