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!

I was born, as I like to call it, behind my time and this app is an excellent way to emulate my old-timey desires without the worry of personal editing and ink costs.
Nevertheless, I believe that finding a more convent form of exporting other than a PDF would be wonderful and appreciated by many.
I look forward to many a short story or even a novel or two typed away jovially to the nostalgic clacking and shooking of this app, a true and instantaneous favorite of mine.

A Beatnik's dream

I've always wanted a typewriter but could never find one. Took a chance on searching through the iStore and have no regrets. Best experience!

Very Good app but...

This is a very well crafted app and I have enjoyed every bit of it but I have a few requests namely :

iCloud support
Export as more different file types
And lastly a Mac app

Furthermore I can only say this is a very good writing app and did I mention its free? A must have for any writer.
