Introducing TextExpander 7.0 — New Look, Improved Experience, Better Accessibility

San Francisco, CA – October 12, 2021 – Smile, the developer of the TextExpander productivity application for macOS®, Windows®, Chrome™, iPhone®, and iPad®, is excited to launch TextExpander 7.0, the latest update for the popular typing shortcut tool that helps people work smarter. 

The latest update significantly enhances the user experience within TextExpander, improving performance and broadening accessibility within the app. TextExpander 7.0 wraps these changes in a whole new, streamlined look and feel. 

A fresh and refined user interface includes a more unified user experience, updates to snippet suggestions, as well as enhanced responsiveness and functionality. Updated conflict management helps users ensure the right snippets expand when needed. TextExpander users will notice the upgraded search feature, which helps them to find the right snippets faster. 

In addition to improved functionality, the latest update makes TextExpander more accessible to all. Beyond improvements to appearance settings and keyboard navigation, the latest version revises the app layout and improves the design for screen reader compatibility. 

“Our goal for TextExpander is not just to make our technology available to everyone, but easy to use by everyone no matter what their needs,” says Philip Goward, Smile founder. “We’re continuously looking to make improvements to our technology to reach more people of every level of ability and see the latest updates as an advance in that direction.” 

As part of TextExpander’s continued improvement, TextExpander is also committed to creating great experiences accessible to all people. The TextExpander support team welcomes accessibility-related feedback.

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 $8.33 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.
