Hanx Writer expands recreating the permanence of a typewriter with the convenience of your iPad and iPhone.

As ever, the report of SHOOK SHOOK and KLOCK-KLOCK is mated with the luxuries of the DELETE key. Your typewriting will be true word-processing with the look, feel, and sound of a classic writing machine. Every Hanx Writer document can be emailed, printed – shared! – with a personality as unique as the person who creates it.

And, Hanx Writer is on the go! Enjoy the tactile thrill of typing up text messages, emails, notes and more in most third-party apps that use a keyboard.

Explore the complete Hanx Writer typewriter collection: The Hanx Prime Select is writers best friend (and it’s FREE); take the Hanx 707 on any journey and admire the elegance (and the fitt-fitt) of the Hanx Golden Touch. Each machine is unique.

And now, there’s more! The Hanx Matterhorn is born of Swiss Precision - sharp & imposing; The Hanx Del Sol glows bright & brilliant with promise; and the Hanx Electric will help you write your story, your way.

You already know how to work them – so get writing!

Good job

Gr8 app

Old Time Focus with Modern Feel

I remember when this app first came out a couple of years ago before the 12.9" iPad Pro was released. I played around with it.
Now, after the update, I tried it out again using the Smart Keyboard. It's really great.

I appreciate the built in focus mode. The text on a blank piece of paper and the sight of the type guide centers everything.
You can drag the paper up and down to get a better view.

The sound of the clacking as the letter is struck on the page is just as cool as the motion of the arm that carries the letters to the page.

It appears a lot of care and love went into this app.
