Using TextExpander-Enhanced Apps With The TextExpander Keyboard

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 apps with TextExpander support.
