Typewriter simulator.

Overview

Winston is the typewriter simulator for macOS. Perfect for one thing: Writing. Just writing. Without losing focus of your ideas, without the constant backtracking and endless fussing over your text, judging it too soon and killing your ideas dead! Winston is about putting imagination and ideas on "paper" and making a mess while you're doing it. It's free-writing at its best!

A fully customizable experience, Winston behaves and sounds like the real deal. You can choose from a variety of typesets, sounds, papers, and backgrounds to suit your style. Customize the typewriter to behave just as you'd like. You can have it behave almost exactly like the real thing, or switch off any of its settings to accommodate your needs.

Features
  • Allow the text to wrap automatically
  • Allow text to be amended
  • Display a text cursor
  • Switch off all animations and sounds

Actually kind of cool. I learned to touch type on a mechanical typewriter ages ago and got a buzz of nostalgia when I fired up this app. No idea if I'll use it much, but its' fun. Could be frustrating to those who've always used a word processor, as you can't reposition the cursor in the text to go back and change something. Might be better on an iPad Pro where you can use the pen to cross words out and write something between the lines of text.

Yeah, it's fun. Only fun. I try it, I like the nostalgia it gave me the time of the try… but there's no way I use it for any work. Totally useless, absolutely indispensable. ;-)
