"If you happen to be a terrible typist (like me), [TextExpander] is very nearly a miracle from God. Saves me hours every week."
"TextExpander 5 is a no-brainer for anyone who regularly types the same or similar chunks of text, and who wants to speed up work while retaining flexibility. On an hourly basis, you’ll recoup the cost in a matter of weeks; the savings from tedium are priceless."
"The benefits from [TextExpander] have been endless. I have probably used this tool every day since I started using it..."
"In the course of testing, I saved myself about nineteen thousand characters and more than an hour of typing. I can only imagine the tally this time next year. Given how many ways there are to spend time, any utility that reclaims it, in a manner that supports rather than encumbers your existing workflow, deserves commendation. Smile’s TextExpander 4 earns our Editors’ Choice award..."
"The overall win, however (this time at least), goes to TextExpander, because of its support for syncing, creating expansions from selected text, and executing shell scripts in expansions. These features push it slightly ahead of TypeIt4Me, and help justify its higher price tag."
"[TextExpander] truly gives you super-powers at your keyboard... This is a truly robust piece of software that I feel confident will reward any user, regardless of what you use your Mac for."
"TextExpander touch, from Smile software, has been around for years, and has excelled in just about every way."
"I have long advocated for... TextExpander. This app is available for OSX and iOS, but the Mac version is the one I cannot live without."
"What makes TextExpander a great app isn’t just that it’s so handy and so capable, but also the fact that it’s constantly evolving—refining its core tools, adding new ones, and adapting to an ever-changing technology landscape."
"TextExpander, one of the most productive tools anyone who does a lot of typing can get. The idea behind it is incredibly simple, but it makes you so much more productive that once you’ve lived with it, it’s hard to live without it... it’ll transform how you work."
"[Smile software] also helped set the standard for Apple community support and sponsorship... they remain dedicated to the Mac and to the Apple community."
"I’ve used TextExpander on my Mac for years...it can save you hundreds of keystrokes a day, especially if you answer a lot of the same emails or do anything that involves repetitive typing."
