  • TextExpander 4 is the missing shortcut utility for Mac OS X.


    -Autocorrects and automates routine tasks.
    -Integrates across applications.
    -Synchronizes across devices thanks to DropBox synchronization.
    -Lightning-fast menu bar access and search.


    -All-business interface.

  • Text Expander for Mac, quite simply, seems to be one of the cooler and more original apps available. Anyone who finds themselves doing a lot of repetitive typing would do well to give the fully-functional demo a try.

  • TextExpander is still one of the best ways to speed up your typing, and with all of its features, it’s no wonder is such a well-loved app. We gave it an 8 because TextExpander itself is so great, but the upgrade doesn’t add quite as much to it as we’d have expected.
