  • App Store Info


Stretching the imagination, you could say that this app is less of an astonishingly accurate, dot matrix printer simulator, and more of a low-budget time machine. If you painted your kitchen appliances a delicious shade of olive, threw a fondue party, and dialed up your radio to a station synonymous with freedom or something related to flight—while using this app—you’ll find that time is hardly linear.

Space-time continuum paradoxes aside, what this app can do is simulate the sights and sounds of a dot matrix printer. Print text or images to entertain yourself and others via email, Facebook, Twitter, or by holding it up to someone else’s face. The emergence of this app means there is a new medium, based on an old technology, to recycle outdated memes with all your same friends and family.

Features of .Matrix include:
-Print text via text entry
-Print images from your user album
-Share your prints via email, Facebook, and Twitter
-Authentic dot matrix printer sounds
-In-App purchase to remove ads and watermark

This app is free with an In-App purchase to remove ads and watermark. For all you cubicle warriors of the 70’s, 80’s, and perhaps even the early 90’s, this app will transport you back to a simpler time. For the children of the previously mentioned age groups, download and stare in wonder and amazement at a spectacle from the past.

Other creative uses for this app include:
-Adding flair to your office memos
-Communicating with baby boomers in a format they know and aren’t angry about
-Sharing pictures of your cat
-Keeping a grocery list
-Using the printing sounds as a white noise machine
-Satisfying the overwhelming urge to buy an actual dot matrix printer
-Sharing even more pictures of your cat
-Proposing to your significant other
-Writing an apology to your significant other
