TextExpander
Universal

Description

Type faster on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch using short abbreviations that expand into long snippets.

With TextExpander touch, you create a library of abbreviation shortcuts for snippets of text that you use frequently, such as addresses, URLs, and standard replies. Tap that abbreviation, and it automatically expands to the full snippet. (You can even insert today's date automatically with the default abbreviation "ddate"!)

You can use your TextExpander touch snippets directly in over 60 apps that support it, including Byword, Dispatch, Drafts, Fantastical 2, Launch Center Pro, OmniFocus for iPhone, OmniOutliner 2 for iPad, TaskAgent, and Tap Forms. See http://www.smilesoftware.com/apps for a complete list.

Given the current feature set of the iOS, TextExpander touch cannot work in the background (as it does in Mac OS X), expanding text snippets while you work in another app, unless that app supports TextExpander touch.

Compose new email messages in TextExpander touch, using your snippet library of boilerplate paragraphs, email addresses, URLs and signatures. Use fill-in snippets to customize common responses. Automatically insert the message into an email in Mail or copy it for use in other apps.

If you use TextExpander on the Mac, you can also share the snippet groups with iOS devices over your local network, and you can sync your snippets via Dropbox.

High quality app that keeps improving as other apps tie into it. Very pleased that OmniFocus recently added that functionality. Great time saver and synchronizes nicely with the desktop version via Dropbox.

Very handy and time-saving if you use apps that integrate it. e.g. Byword.

This apps functionality is limited due to restaints made by Apple. Especially now that iOS has keyboard shortcuts. Still, I love this product, especially on the Mac.
