2010 Macworld Utility of the Year! Type faster on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch using short abbreviations that expand into long snippets.

With TextExpander touch, you create a library of abbreviation shortcuts for snippets of text that you use frequently, such as addresses, URLs, and standard replies. Tap that abbreviation, and it automatically expands to the full snippet. (You can even insert today's date automatically with the default abbreviation "ddate"!)

You can use your TextExpander touch snippets directly in over 80 apps that support it, including Twittelator, TwitBird Pro, Osfoora, Elements, Simplenote, WriteRoom, Nebulous Notes, Pocket Informant, Things, and Todo. See www.smilesoftware.com/applist for a complete list.

Given the current feature set of the iOS, TextExpander touch cannot work in the background (as it does in Mac OS X), expanding text snippets while you work in another app, unless that app supports TextExpander touch.

Compose new email messages in TextExpander touch, using your snippet library of boilerplate paragraphs, email addresses, URLs and signatures. Automatically insert the message into an email in Mail or copy it for use in other apps.

If you use TextExpander on the Mac, you can share the snippet groups with the iPhone over your local network.

Waste for me

I bought this to use auto text while typing SMS messages. For that you have to write a note and then have it pasted into an SMS. Not convenient. As the high rating influenced me to buy this, I inclined to review and rate this for people like me. I will revise my rating if it starts to work as I need it to.

5/5 stars

Great App!

I bought this app knowing I'd get a lot more use out of it once more apps integrated the SDK sharing feature. While we all wish TE Touch was system wide like it is on the mac, we know Apple won't allow that. Smileonmymac was very creative in their approach and deserve credit for that alone. > READ THE APP DESCRIPTION BEFORE PURCHASING. DON'T LEAVE A NEGATIVE REVIEW IF YOU FAILED TO READ IT.

Twitter for iPhone integrated TE into it and I'm finding that alone worth the price of textexpander touch. I created snippets for people I @ reply to a lot. Example: my name is @bradleychambers, so I would create a snippet that put that name in whenever I typed @bra. Speeding my twittering by leaps and bounds!

Simplenote has also now integrated TE into it and I'm loving the note taking with snippets. Tons of other apps are integrating TE into it. TE gets more valuable every week.

I'm realizing that I'm much more likely to buy an app that has TE support.

One idea for the future would be a built in Web Kit browser with TE support

5/5 stars

Back to being wonderful

The data loss bug is fixed!

TextExpander doesn't work in every app, certainly, but works in every app I own that I regularly enter lots of text into. It's a great, simple little app that does just what it's supposed to.

Still, the ability to rename groups and move snippets between groups sure would be nice.
