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 compatibility with various apps (and even Spotlight). The developer of that app was nicely working with me and offering bug fixes, but the quirky issues still persisted. So I decided to look at alternatives and that's when I discovered Typinator.

During the trial period, I wasn't in love with the Typinator interface, to be honest. It took some adjustment. But I've come entirely accustomed to it and now can't even remember why I had issue with it in the first place :)

I have just over 300 of my own 'personal' snippets in Typinator and the syncing of these snippets between all my Macs via Dropbox is the most essential feature, IMO. It works transparently and reliably and makes my life so much easier. Yes, I know the competitors have it too, but it has worked 100% reliably in Typinator, which I couldn't say for the other product.

It's been at least two years that I've been using this utility and there have been many updates in that time, that have included both additional features and bug fixes. And I can't recall a single time where an update to Typinator has resulted in a new "bug" appearing the moment I installed it (which happened once or twice with TextExpander).

I also appreciate Ergonis' customer loyalty. On the day that I write this, they just released version 5.9 with bug fixes, even though they are already hard at work on version 6. Many software developers hold back the bug fixes and make you pay for the next version to get software that works better (even *Apple* does this!). I applaud Ergonis for not doing this!

I strongly recommend Typinator to Mac users looking to save themselves from lots of unnecessary typing!

This is a great text expansion app. The interface is intuitive and the tool itself is pretty powerful. I am an attorney and use Typinator for all sorts of stuff, from stock letters to entering billing.

Well TextExpander is a great software - but Typinator is better: Quicker, reliable and absolutely stable.
Once you worked with such an App you will not be able to do it without it.

Coming from AutoHotKey on Windows and looking for something to handle text expansion. Typinator has been by far the simplest and most reliable.

Typinator is simply the best enhancement for my workflow I have found in years. Typinator gets updated regularly for free, with great new features are being added, e.g. recently a search bar for all extension sets. Highly recommended.

I've been using Typinator for over 2 years now and must say, it is absolutely great. I've never had a problem or 'glitch' and the folks of Ergonis do a wonderful job of keeping everything updated on a regular basis. Highly recommend it's use.

I tried Typinator, TextExpander and TypeIt4Me and I found Typinator to be the best hands down. I shouldn't have waited this long.

This software is a must have for anyone working with a computer. Entering email address with a simple stroke, the words you type alot, nice signature at the end of messages, a very effective and capable autocorrect tool also.

The more you use it ,the more you become addicted to it. I use only a little part of what it can do, but even so, its is still a cornerstone of my computer work, i can't live without it now.

Just been warned there's the 4.1 upgrade, want to update ? Sure, why not...
Your licence doesn't cover the new version.
Say what ?
Is there any new stuff in here justifying this update because I been using it like it's part of my osx for a while and never had any real trouble with 4.0.
Can't you ask more money when version 5 is delivered or something ?

Gotta give credits to the support, though.

Team just kindly mail-reminded me I purchased typinator more than 2 years ago under their old time based policy. Appreciating the consideration.

With that said, typinator is useful and reliable, never failed me really so I'm not even complaining having to stick with a fine working 4.0.

It's all good.
