Welcome to the new TextExpander

The new TextExpander is designed to make your experience easier, simpler, and richer. TextExpander introduces snippet sharing, which goes far beyond basic sync. TextExpander is not just an app, but a series of apps for Mac, iPhone, iPad, and Windows (now in beta), backed by a powerful sharing service which you manage from your personal account.
Do try it – we hope you’ll like it.

Snippet Sharing Made Easy

TextExpander users unite! Sharing snippets means we all work together to speed up communication and accomplish more. To share, just send an email invite, and you’re done! It’s never been so easy. Anyone, or just your chosen few, can edit them. Updates are shared instantly. Just imagine how you benefit by working together with snippets.

This is just the beginning of an exciting new direction for TextExpander. We have some big plans, and we can’t wait to show you what we have coming next.

Standalone Apps

This is a pretty big change, so we’ll continue to support the standalone Mac (v5) and iOS (v3.5) versions you have now.

Beyond Sync

With snippet sharing, there’s more information than can be contained in a sync file. The TextExpander service supports robust sharing of snippets, at the one-on-one level and the Team level. With the possibility of multiple editors, live updates, and more, there’s a lot going on under the hood. What does this mean for you? Just share with an email invite, and let TextExpander work on keeping your snippets current on all your devices.

Simple App Setup

Isn’t it great when setup is simple? Just sign in to your apps, and your snippets are there, always current.

Everything in one basket

TextExpander comes hand in hand with all the apps and all the updates, no upgrade fees, no additional costs. Isn’t it nice knowing you’ll always have the latest version?

Online editing, coming to a browser near you

Even if we don’t have an app for all your platforms (yet!) you can access and edit your snippets and manage your account online from any web browser. We’re excited about what we can bring to TextExpander next. We love new things, don’t you?

Teams. Communicate Better.

Pool your knowledge and save everyone’s time. Couldn’t your office use the productivity boost?

Simplify member signup

Create a TextExpander Organization to share the snippet groups with the Members who need them. Anyone who makes a TextExpander account with your company’s unique email domain (e.g. me@companyname.com) can be automatically added to your TextExpander Organization. Pre-set the permission level of any new members so that once they add themselves, your job as Admin is done.

Control company snippets

Make your Organization the manager of the snippet groups important to your company. These snippet groups are the property of your TextExpander Organization, and can be managed by any members you choose to make Admin. Because the snippets most important to the team should be under the team’s control, shouldn’t they?

Streamline snippet group sharing

Admin can join any Members to an Organization group immediately, no email invites left buried in a cluttered inbox. You pick the permissions of members on a per group basis.

Centralize billing

Would you like to simplify your billing? Assign one or more members of an Organization to manage billing. They handle the payment for all the Organization’s members in one place, with one bill.
