Typinator is an essential part of my Mac life. I can't live without this or clipboard utility software, because both make life so much easier.

I was a TextExpander user for many years, but started having problems with its more...

Doesn't seem like there is an upgrade price from 5.x to 6.x. Boo. It's good software, but it's got some competition and a slight discount for current customers would be appreciated.

The 5.x to 6.x upgrade is listed on Ergonis' Pricing tab as 12.49 Euros for a Single-user license upgrade and the Family pack license upgrade is 18.99 Euros.

Ah, thanks. They should really put that right on the store page, because that's where I looked for it.

Typinator is one of my "must have" utilities. I used it constantly all day to save typing and so I don't misspell things like my name and email address. I've never had a stability or crash issue.

Started out with TypeIt4Me 1993, that died in my environment from slow development, I then used TextExpander from 2007 to 2011 when it suddenly became bloated and slow. Since then I have been very happy with Typinator. And now with regex it is just outstanding!

I used to use other spelling correction software but it never worked out all that well. It was never upgraded or had constant conflicts with my main programs. Then I discovered Typinator and it has not failed me yet and I could could not be more please at how easy it is to use and to add my own library of words to it. This is well worth the cost for the ease of knowing my spelling will be right for all I do.

Amazing app and real life/time saver! Can't work without it anymore :) Due to extensive daily work have to type a lot and therefore it really helps. So many repeating phrases and info are typed in seconds! Lots of mistypes are automatically corrected - I do not even notice it anymore :)

Some samples of what I have:
tka - Thank you in advance for your kind attention!
cp - My cell phone number :)
my emails, copyright statement, greetings etc, etc, etc!
It works regardless of language that you use!

And version 6 brought me even more happiness with introduction of DOuble CAps correction!!! This feature I've been looking for a years literally!!! I type fast and very often do not undress shift in time resulting in DC :) Now I have a relief for this! This is amazing and thanks you, folks for this!!!

Syncing sets through Dropbox is also amazing - I have two Macs (office/home) and if I enter anything new on one, I get same on my other mac.

Regular expressions make this tool even more powerful but I need to get myself familiar with them yet :) Yet many things come already with installation!

This is one of the rare apps that do cost its money and I never regret about this purchase for a second! DO recommend!!!

I am a "productivity freak" who's always looking for ways to simplify my workflow and my work life. I started using Typinator many years ago, replacing another, well-known text-expansion tool with it. I was glad I did back then, and I'm glad I still use it. Whenever any competitor comes out, I'll give it a try, hoping to find the perfect expander. But I already have the perfect one in Typinator. (If you don't have "pairs" installed as a Typinator expansion -- use it!)

As a professional writer with arthritis in my hands, Typinator is one of my two "must have" productivity tools.

I found typinator much more stable than Textexpander which I had issues with. Also support is insanely quick and competent.

Really, without typinator I'd lose a lot of time every day. I tested a few others - this one is the best.

I've used Typinator since 2011, just upgraded to 6 from 4, and the regular expressions sets really add a whole new level of quick-type options. i have expansions that take a 3 keystroke input and spit out paragraphs of pre-formatted text (huge timesaver for IT support).

Heck, I even have reference lists and a list of all my frequent contacts and important IP addresses set up as shortcuts so they are always at my fingertips. Also, I never realize how terrible I am at typing until I'm at a machine w/o typinator!

I don't see any advantages over TextExpander. Has anyone compared Typinator with TextExpander for features, speed and stability? I am a long time TextExpander user and they update frequently, have great support, have an iPhone version that sync's via iCloud. I personally can't find any reason whatsoever to even consider a switch to Typinator.

For those considering to purchase Typinator I would suggest TextExpander as an alternative, it is much more feature rich and is very stable.

Yes I have used both. And I tried to like TextExpander due to Mac and iPhone support - but now I use Typinator because it is faster and more stable - and I now have an Android phone that has word anticipation built it so does not need TE or Ty. And I just did not like the way TextExpander operated. Typinator is more nimble and more robust.
You may find it difficult at first to change, but I do sincerely recommend Typinator ahead of TextExpander. Support for Typinator is exceptional, and syncing between 2 Macs works perfectly even when I'm running Sharemouse to use the one keyboard on both Macs. And Typinator is very fast at expanding the text - instantaneous really. I use it constantly every day - it has never ever faulted. BTW you can import your TextExpander snippet file into Typinator to give it a quick test with your own expansions.
And you could continue to use TextExpander on your iPhone -albeit with manual updates.

I have been using the trial and like it but I hate to spend another $34.00 on an app I already have most of the function with. I did purchase KeyCue again after all these years because of the Keyboard maestro support.

Thanks for your help.

A lot of testimonials & letters of recommendation, but has anyone yet USED the version 6 and compared it to 5?

Typinator is a good idea & I have version 5. Someday I will use it.

I use it and alone the DOuble CAps feature is worth gold for me.
