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!

So much potential

This app sounds & feels like a type writer, but it has its faults. To use it as a stand alone writer, it does it’s job. But & this is a BIG but... When a notification comes through the writer stalls, loses its place & then it’s difficult to go back to where you were (sometimes closing the app rectifies it). I would like to show positive intent, using this after iOS 11 update, but I can see there is similar feedback given. I don’t know whether the developer has a future plan for the fix, or if I buy the whole basket of add-ons will this fix the problem? I hope the developer sees this review & gives out some information or a clue on fix. Another point, it would be good if the app had the potential for ‘split screen’. But I as said at the start, the app does its job!


Stunning But...

As a huge fan of old typewriter, Hanx writer has been a great pleasure in the course of my dissertation writing. The app easily pairs with variety of bluetooth keyboards which brings more joy of typewriting experience. However, I came across a big flaw when it comes to restore purchase. App restoration is blocked somehow from the different devices though I downloaded them from app store to different devices. Soon I am going to sell the current device which means the bundle will be gone with the device. It may be the concept of in-app purchase. But still it seems unpair to me the bundle purchase is limited to each device. To make another purchase, the price is a little to high. I sincerely hope the developer sort this issue out.

It’s fine for my story’s but it can glitch

My story writing is fine and I love being able to access this app and use it to type as they would of done ages ago. I think this app is great which is why I have it four stars. However, I knocked off one star because it keeps putting it on a list of different types of the letter that I picked. So I have to type as quickly as possible - which can get tiring. Thanks for others advice. It still does its job and works well and I think it works nicely with my typing. I am proud to have the opportunity to have this app!😊
