The Amazing Type-Writer



This is seriously cool.

Sharing your snapshots after applying vintage filters emulating that film camera look is so last year. How about sharing your thoughts, jokes, notes, poems written in small cards with a virtual typewriter?

You can, with The Amazing Type-Writer!

As you can see from the photo above, the result is quite realistic and effective. What’s more, the whole typing experience is. When you finish typing a note, you can save it as a photo in your Camera Roll, email it, or post it to the Public Gallery. After you posted it publicly, you can retrieve the card’s link and share it on Twitter, for instance.

One clever twist: unlike with photo sharing apps (such as Instagram), your public note can be ‘mimeographed’ (copied) by others, who can modify it by adding their contribution and reissuing the card in the Public Gallery again. You can do the same with other people’s cards, of course.

I’ve started publishing one short poem per day. Go find your ritual, and enjoy.
