This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.


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!

Customer Reviews

Need to pay twice for iPhone and iPad?

I loved this app and use it on both my iPhone and iPad. It was annoying that my documents don’t sync between devices but okay I love the app enough to bear with that, even though I don’t understand why the developers left out something that important.

Most recently however I was very upset to learn that I have to pay $9.99 twice to get the three new typewriters - once on my iPhone and again on my iPad - restore purchases did not work. I’m pretty sure I paid only once when I purchased the previous typewriters. I read in another review, where the developers suggested to uninstall and reinstall the app (on iPad say), in order to restore purchases made on another device (like the iPhone). So I uploaded all my iPad documents - yes had to export as useless PDF - uninstalled and reinstalled the app - only to find that restore purchases doesn’t work, and when I hit the purchase button, I was charged. I get that some other apps do this too, but that’s usually because their iPhone and iPad versions are vastly different. Hanx Writer is identical on both devices!

Mind you, I’d emailed the developers twice to ask about this, both before and after I paid for the iPad version, and they’d ignored me both times. Guys, that’s really rude and unprofessional.

I get the feeling the developers are starting to lose interest in this app. Which is a real shame. It was really fun before they started ripping their loyal customers off.


Nothing compares to typing on a typewriter - but this comes pretty close! Brilliant app thank you Hanx!

I love it

This is fabulous, very easy to use brilliant
