TextExpander 3 + custom keyboard


Type faster on your iPhone®, iPad®, or iPod touch® in any App using the TextExpander keyboard. The keyboard enables custom abbreviations to expand into long snippets of text, such as addresses, URLs, email signatures, and form letters. You can even insert today's date automatically with the default abbreviation "ddate"!

Access all your TextExpander snippets while in Mail, Safari, anywhere!

How does that work? Make an abbreviation “eemail” and have it expand into “email@email.com.”

Use advanced TextExpander snippets in over 60 apps with integrated support, including Byword, Dispatch, Drafts, Fantastical 2, Launch Center Pro, OmniFocus for iPhone, OmniOutliner for iPad, TaskAgent, and Tap Forms. See http://www.smilesoftware.com/apps for a complete list.

With advanced snippets you can even use fill-in-the-blanks to breeze through form letters.

If you use TextExpander on the Mac® you can sync your snippets via Dropbox or iCloud Drive, or share snippet groups with iPhones and iPads on the same Wi-Fi network.

Sure, you get your TextExpander snippets but at the cost of having an incredibly shitty keyboard. Two thumbs DOWN.

I agree with Michael. The keyboard needs to be improved.
I got this on sale for .99. I'll only use that keyboard when I need the snippets which is occasionally.
