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!

Pleasure to type in!!!!

Excellent app. But please try to incorporate pinch zoom and shrink option in the writing page cause it becomes difficult to select a particular written area to make a collective font/color change especially on the iPhone.

An island of beauty.

I love the concept of Hanx Writer. It’s a pleasure to type in and very intuitive. However, in the present world where apps exist not by themselves and are part of an ecosystem, this app is useless.
For one, it saves only in pdf format. So if you want the text in any other app, it’s a no go. Or you have to make it part of an elaborate workflow.
I looked around a bit and it’s tough even to copy large tracts of text too.
Even exporting to something like notes does so as pictures.

For an app that does not allow for any sort of processing, this inability to work with other apps is a sure no no.
So in short, if you just want documents that look like typewritten sheets, go for this app. If you want anything else, don’t download it.

It's a beautiful experience typing on this app. The features on the different typewriter designs are amazing and really fun to work with. Highly recommend it to writers & bloggers or even to take notes.
