Feature Parity and More: TextExpander for Windows Updates User Interface, Features to Match macOS

San Francisco, CA – December 15, 2020 – Smile, the developer of productivity applications for macOS®, Windows®, Chrome™, iPhone® and iPad®, today released an update for TextExpander, the popular Windows typing shortcut tool for smarter communication. Teams and individuals using TextExpander will experience improved performance and a refreshed appearance.

TextExpander for Windows brings near feature parity with TextExpander for macOS including sorting options, duplicating snippets & groups, and customizing display fonts, among others. These new features enable better organization and easier editing.

TextExpander for Windows users will benefit from a cleaner, newly-updated user interface that makes it easier to manage and navigate snippets. This update, plus the recently-added Quick Actions, significantly improves productivity.

“We’re pleased to bring the bulk of TextExpander for macOS features to TextExpander for Windows,” said Philip Goward, co-founder of Smile. “We’re excited to bring a seamless experience to cross-platform TextExpander users.”

TextExpander lets you instantly insert snippets of text from a repository of emails, boilerplate, and other content as you type – using a quick search or abbreviation. Multiply your productivity across your team with TextExpander’s built-in sharing which keeps company communication current, accurate, and consistent with clients, customers, and one another.

TextExpander is $7.96 per user per month for the Team plan, which offers robust data and user management, billing, and statistics. TextExpander is as little as US $3.33 per month for individuals on the Life Hacker plan.
