SmileOnMyMac Releases TextExpander 1.3
By smilaeonmymac, 05 Jun 2006
SmileOnMyMac has released TextExpander 1.3, the customizable typing timesaver tool. The utility, which lets users define abbreviations for frequently-used text strings and images, has been updated to include features such as direct creation of snippets from selections and snippet nesting.
With TextExpander, users can save thousands of keystrokes by using short abbreviations to automate the typing of frequently-used phrases, addresses, responses and email signatures. Images can be included in a snippet, making it easy to add a logo or photo to an email. Current date and time can be inserted in any format preferred.
"TextExpander is a powerful productivity enhancer I use every single day," said Greg Scown, co-founder of SmileOnMyMac. "It's also fun and creative, letting me easily express myself with rich text and pictures, and that makes it a great fit for the SmileOnMyMac product line."
First released under the name Textpander in August 2005, the utility quickly garnered high ratings from users and reviewers, including 4.5 mice from Macworld magazine. SmileOnMyMac acquired Textpander earlier this month from developer Peter Maurer, renamed it TextExpander, and prepared the 1.3 release. TextExpander imports snippets from Textpander, as well as from TypeIt4Me and Typinator, so users of these utilities can easily switch to TextExpander.
SmileOnMyMac's other products are DiscLabel, PDFPen, PageSender, PhotoPrinto and BrowseBack, which won Best of Show at Macworld this year.
