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!

Love the sounds, but...

• the size of the keys are an issue for me, could they be bigger?
• the delay for the uppercase is too long, and most if the time the second letter is the one capitalized
• a shame that I can only export it as a PDF! ** PLEASE allow to cut-and-paste, even if losing the typewriter font style.
• when selecting the keyboard, I’d like to see the name of the keyboard I’m selecting not the developer’s URL

Crashes when I copy & paste

I’m using iOS 12.1 on an iPad 9.7” 2017 version and it works ok, except when I copy a word or sentence. It’s when I try to paste the app crashes, then closes.

Not good on iPhone X

Nice idea but keyboard isn’t compatible with iPhone X. Space bar is completely hidden and other keys are cropped by screen edges.
