TextExpander takes the pain out of typing the same mundane things over and over again. If you work in customer support, respond to inquiries, work with various signatures, or find yourself typing the same boilerplate text, TextExpander saves you time. On the Mac, TextExpander lets you create short phrases and keywords that can expand into dates, addresses, and paragraphs of text with just a few keystrokes. You can even create pre-formatted forms that let you add in things like a person’s name. For those who want to take TextExpander to the next level, TextExpander even lets you perform custom actions on text that you might regularly copy and paste from somewhere else, like a technical support guide. If you work with words, TextExpander will prove to be an invaluable tool for your Mac.
TextExpander touch 2.0 on iOS devices now comes with the same great features that are found on the Mac, such as formatted text and fill-ins. If you’re working on the go, it’s a great way to get the same benefits from of the desktop onto your iPhone or iPad.
