Hope you have fun when you typing via iTyper. iTyper is a software which can play sound when you typing. You can setup typing theme whatever you like. Key sounds include: spacebar, backspace, carriage return and scroll up and down, and the others will play with default keys.
PS:Please turn on "Enable access for assistive devices", if you not turn on this property,iTyper can't capture keyboard events.
For:Lion and Mountain Lion
System Preferences ---> Accessibility --> and check the Enable access for assistive devices.
System Preferences --->Security & Privacy--->Accessibility(drag and drop iTyper to this table，you can get iTyper from Finder/Applications. Please check the lock which on the bottom left corner is unlock, if it is not ,you can't drag and drop iTyper into Accessibility)
After that,please relaunch iTyper then you will hear the sound when you typing.
Thank you for your support and feel free to contact us with any comments or suggestions ([email protected]).
We are already working on an update, please submit any features you would like to see added to iTyper.

It works if you follow the instructions exactly. - It works if you set up the assessability options just like it says AND you restart the application. The sounds have a micro second delay which is a little annoying but brings me back to the days when I used to type on a real typewriter (yeah, I’m old). Might be cool to get other profiles in updates like for the selectrict typewriters etc. Well worth .99cent to bring an old-skool smile on my face.
Cool idea, at first... - A fun, novel idea. Until it stopped working. Now it’s open but invisible and useless somewhere in the background, but can’t be deleted because it’s “open.” I suppose I could visit iTyper Support but seeing as how I paid $2, I’d rather just write a negative review, find it and delete it, then move on.

a good nostalgic app for this "old-timer" - I’ve never reviewed an app before, but decided its time to try. Having typed many a college paper on an old Smith-Corona portable typewriter that I carried in the trunk of my car, I thought I would reminisce a bit and download this app. I gave it 3 stars: 1. Installing takes a bit. The past reviews helped, but none were for my laptop and OS (I have a MacBook pro running OS Yosemite) to install: System Preference>Security & Privacy>Privacy>Accessibility and drag the app in, then - I set the app to start on login and then - restart your MacBook and it worked fine. A bit of frustration until I figured out the restart; 2. The sound is good and does bring back memories (at least until senility comes knocking); 3. On the downside, when I’m able to get a good of head of steam going & really begin pounding out the words, there is a bit of a delay and the app slows down. That; however is okay as I’m sure in the near future arthritis and a slowing ability to organize my thoughts will slow down my typing and the app will run in sync with my keyboard. Bottom-line: all-in-all for a $0.99 app I am very happy. If you get past the bit of frustration on the installation, I think you’ll be happy.
Two stars for two reasons - I purchased this app because I remembered an old app that did something similar and couldn’t remember the name of it. I downloaded and installed iTyper and went through enabling the App to control my computer through Accessibility in Security Preferences. Like another reviewer said, the App does work… kind of… But it’s way way way behind my typing. It is so lagged that sometimes it misses key sounds all together. So, I’m only giving it two stars because it’s too slow to be really cool and having to give it access to accessibility is a bummer. I have just de-installed this App and downloaded “Typewriter Keyboard” online. Typewriter keyboard was the old one and it has been updated to work with Yosemite. It does what iTyper does but it’s 100X faster. It feels much more like a real typewriter sound and response. I love it. It also does not require that you enable it to have access to control your system through Accessiblity. It just runs. My advice would be to just get the Typewriter Keyboard app and save yourself a couple bucks. Or, wait until this app is updated so that the performance matches that of the other app… Oh, and until they make it possible to run without having access to accessibility in your preferences. That is a big bummer for this iTyper app… IMHO.
Time delay - There is a time delay between the key click and the sound. You can’t type very fast or the sounds don’t work
Works so far... - I’ve had iTyper for a week now, and I’ve had no problems. I am an avid writer and I like to hear the sound of the keys… you really can hear yourself hitting a rhythm as you write. I hope as one reviewer mentioned that mine won’t stop working. Right now I’m running on OS X 10.9.4— I hope more themes will be added… Update: I continue to use iTyper and it is still fantastic. It works for me all the time, and never once, as others stated, stopped working. I am pleased to see that the developer continues to make updates as the Mac landscape changes. iTyper is one of my favorite apps available. I am a writer, and I love to hear the typewriter sounds. It motivates me. Keep it up Alnysoft!
It has potenital…. - I type…fast. I love this program and its sound, but it cannot keep up with my pace of typing. If the developer would fix the response time of the program sounds, this would be a five star app all they way. Until then I can only give it 3 at most. I looking forward to updates in the future.
