Description:

Smart Typer is the cheapest and easiest-to-use text expander available on the Mac App Store.

We think it is an application you will love. Define a shortcut (e.g. "brp"), define the phrase (e.g. "Best regards, Paul") and you're done. That's how easy it is to use Smart Typer!

Whenever you enter the shortcut, Smart Typer will magically replace it with the text you want. So, whenever you enter "brp", Smart Typer will replace "brp" with "Best regards, Paul".

Moreover, it does not matter where you are in the system, Smart Typer will always work. It will save you time when you are entering personal data such as addresses in a web browser, email application, word processor or any other kind of application.

Enter a shortcut in any app on your Mac, press the space bar and do what you love in the time you have saved.

Best App for the Price! - I work with the same phrases a lot, and set the short codes up with a number at the end, to make it easier and avoid my regular words getting confused for short codes. If you set this up correctly, it works perfectly! Best app out there for this purpose. I mean really, for $0.99 you can't go wrong!

Just does not work - I've tried to enable universal access for this app on Maverick but it doesn't appear as one of the options. In my opinion, this app is worthless and I would love to get my money back. Their support did not respond to my several attempts either. DON'T BUY IT!

Doesn't work that well - It has a great idea but there are too many shortcomings to make it work for me. If your shortcut is the same as the last few letters in a word you're typing, it will expand it onto the end of the word you typed, leaving you with a jumble of letters. It also doesn't always format the beginning and ending spaces when it does expand it. It'd work great if these nuances were fixed.

Review by polarjim515

Very Good, helpful, needs some tweeks - I use this for templates and instructions that I have to send out dozens of times a week or even a day. The formating of a template on one line was a little awkard the first time using it. I solved that problem by writing out what I want in text edit and then converting to the ST format. It does not like text that starts with a numeric and some non-alphanumeric characters seem not to be recognized. For the price and the functionality, I am very happy and have recommended this to my co-workers.

Review by AletheiaFL

Has Great Potential - I use it for writing my progress notes (I'm a mental health and marriage and family therapist). I was wondering if there is any way to only allow the phrase when typed stand alone. For example, if I had a shortcut of nn with a long phrase... but I was attempting to type planning... Is there a pay the entire phrase doesn't populate. And possibly allowing me to to copy or export the shortcuts in an excel document so I can print a cheat sheet... sometimes I forget the shortcut I created. :) Also, possibly creating a way that you can't allow duplicate shortcuts. Honestly, I appreciate this app, some of those requests are not necessary, just helpful….

works for me - it works well. just a note for anyone having problems getting it to work - only use lowercase letters. I used caps and it would not work. this info would be really useful in the instructions.
