My Typewriter combines the look and feel of working on a vintage typewriter with the convenience of a modern day word processor.
With My Typewriter you have a typewriter to-go right in the palm of your hand. From the Underwood-inspired keystrokes and bell to the randomized ink patterns, this app was designed with the authentic experience of the classic writing machine in mind.
Anything you create on My Typewriter can be saved, printed, exported, and uploaded to any platform you would like. Furthermore, the page size of My Typewriter has been optimized for social media posting to give your work the highest aesthetic quality on what’s becoming the chosen platform for the modern day poet.
Some advantages My Typewriter has over other typewriter apps are the ability to delete mistakes, a longer page to be better-suited for long-form works, a font randomizer, a selection of vintage fonts to choose from, and the ability to move the cursor around manually in order to play with poetic form or to function like a traditional word-processor.
We hope the next wave of Kerouacs, Plaths, and Hemingways use My Typewriter to create their masterworks just as we hope anyone with the inkling to write finds true joy from this virtual typewriter.
Writers write, so get to it!

The New Way to Set Goals
For years now I’ve been using the Notes app on my IPhone for various things. Most of which are daily, weekly, monthly goals, etc. With this app however I’m finally able to add a creative twist to my goal setting and the execution of those goals.
Not only can I adjust fonts, sizes for more immediate or important lines, but I find that I’ve become accustomed to the basic fonts and platform of Notes and it’s engaging.
Adding this to my daily journaling has created a new experience. Looking forward to watching this application develop over the years!
Being a regular typist, the typing experience simulates the real experience as well as you could expect (if only there was a way to rattle the phone during typing). Overall, this is a good virtual typewriter.
- realistic type set
- realistic typing sound and motion
- saving and exporting
- In app project save.
- It's nice being able to move the type location where one needs it.
- there's a bit of a learning curve
- the application crashes when trying to save locally on the device and loses ones work. I sent to "Messages" to myself and then saved to my phone as a work around.
- I learned to save the project regularly as to not lose things
- allow cut and paste (I know that defeats the point of the simulator but it's worth the investment for those that want the "type" without the work)
- Add a watermark option
- It would be nice to have different canvas options - colors, textures, and perhaps an import from the "photo album".
I must have searched for 40 minutes for a normal typewriter app. Everything else is garbage. This is exactly what I was looking for months ago. I love that there are multiple typewriter fonts, the size is adjustable and the preview mode is great. It feels authentic. Inspired to write more and can’t wait to use this app instead of the 15-part process I was using with a combination of other apps!
If you write, you need this. Don’t even look at the other ones- trust me.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
