About this app

Android device + bluetooth keyboard + e-reader = type outside in sunlight!

Use your e-reader as a portable typewriter!

Traditional screens are fantastic everywhere but outside, especially on a sunny day. E-ink screens work well, but e-readers are difficult to type on and don't support external keyboards.

SolarWriter gives you the best of both worlds.

SolarWriter running on your Android device acts as a hub between your keyboard and your e-reader. You type on the keyboard, and the text appears on both on the Android device and on the e-reader's screen (via its web browser).

Take advantage of your Kindle's (or other e-reader's) e-ink screen to put your thoughts on paper even outside, with no need to transcribe later.

Write at parks, on beaches, in backyards... anywhere you wanted to but couldn't.

Save files on your device, or share through email, SMS, and more.

Detailed instructions for setup are included inside the app.

Love this program. Basically it is turning your Android or IOS device into a tiny web server. Your bluetooth keyboard is connected to your Android or IOS device and you can use your E-ink Reader via wifi or hotspot to view the actively updated web page. That way you can type out in the bright sunlight using the E-ink display instead on your Android or IOS device. One of these days Kindle may add BT keyboard support. Until then this is the cleanest work around. I had no issues connecting.

Wow this is so cool. I use it with my kindle scribe. I am a writer so it is so useful to carry a small folding keyboard and then connect with this app to my Scribe and write on the e-ink screen. Thank you team for creating such a fantastic app.
