While the custom keyboard allows users to expand snippets in any app, there are a couple of types of snippets which cannot expand via the keyboard.
- Rich text and formatted text snippets will expand as plain text
- Fill-in snippets cannot expand via the keyboard
If you use a TextExpander-enhanced app for iPhone & iPad, you won’t have those limitations. With a TextExpander-enhanced app you can:
- Expand formatted text snippets
- Expand fill-in snippets, note that not all apps have chosen to implement this feature
- Expand snippets using any keyboard you want, not just the TextExpander keyboard
- Expand snippets with a Bluetooth keyboard
Check out our list of over 60 apps with TextExpander support; the list keeps growing.
