What is Typinator for Mac

Typinator turbo-charges your typing productivity.

Type a little. Typinator does the rest.
We've all faced projects that require repetitive typing tasks. With Typinator, you can store commonly used text and images in quick keywords and abbreviations. From email templates to code snippets to website URLs, there's no easier way to recreate repetitive text at a moment's notice.

Workflow-Friendly Features
  • Uncomplicated configuration. Quickly and easily create abbreviations and assign replacement text and pictures.

  • Improved expansion of short text fragments in Messages.
  • Magic keys now work in the text fields of the Quick Define ("New item from…") window.
  • Works around an expansion problem in Joplin's rich text editor.
  • Fixes a problem where new abbreviations added via AppleScript or JavaScript were recognized only after manually opening the Typinator window.
  • Fixes an expansion problem in Anki V2.

I previously used Textexpander since 2013 but in the last year it has gotten quite unrealible and Smile not fixing things I reported. So that’s why I finally opted to get Typinator. Again, keep up the great work!

I just recently switched back to Typinator from the other guy (The one with TE as the initials), and I'm finding that I no longer am having issues that I had just been dealing with. I would do expansions and keep typing only to find I had done so too quickly for the other app and my new text after the expansion got caught in the middle of the expansion. This was very annoying to me and would cause me to have to retype something. Basically negating all the time I saved using text expansion. I'm happily back on Typinator now and I do like that it let me import my abbreviations from other app, which made swapping back pretty easy. Also, I do appreciate paying for version upgrades ~ yearly as opposed to subscription based if I'm being honest.

There are other features I am about to explore in Typinator. For the ease on my fingers it is a top-bargain GreyT

Wer viel schreibt, eventuell auch gar Sachtexte, in denen feste Begriffe oft wieder auftauchen, findet hier das beste Werkzeug, das ich kenne. Auch ganze Textblöcke lassen sich einsetzen, wenn es sein soll, doch erst einmal bietet es mir die einfache Möglichkeit, z.B. auf Englisch den Apostroph direkt durch die [+]Taste zu belegen (ohne die Umschalttaste bemühen zu müssen) und auf Französisch das so oft bemühte à durch eine Taste meiner Wahl direkt erzeugen zu können, ich wählte das [#]. Also, für Leute, die mit Sprache jonglieren müssen (oder mit diakritischen Zeichen) und viel und schnell schreiben müssen oder wollen, nach sehr lohnenswerter und interessanter Einarbeitung nicht mehr wegzudenken. Und man kann auch alle Funktionen, falls irgendwo verloren gefühlt, durch ein Tastaturkürzel einfach kurz abschalten, um wieder da zu sein, wo man vorher war. Ich danke auch persönlich für den Support, der mir in speziellen Fragen weiterhalf.

There's food, water, housing... and then Typinator. That's how important this software is to me! :) I use it many times a day and it saves me hours of time! I've tried other expansion apps; they aren't nearly as user-friendly as Typinator, and they are glitchy. But Typinator just works, and it works well. World-class service and a fantastic interface. Do not hesitate to purchase it today!

This is superlatively flexible software of high quality. The developer is amazingly responsive and helpful and the manual is excellent. You can use the software for simple, straightforward text expansions but also for much more complex expansions and substitutions using RegEx. Further, you can select to which apps various groups of abbreviations apply (so, for example, you can exclude certain groups of abbreviations from applying when using your browser). Like others who have posted here I would never be without Typinator. It is simply superb and really good value. (I have nothing to do with Typinator other than being a really contented user of it.)

It works like a charm, is very well documented and its support is superb: not only they reply quickly but they stick with you until you solve your doubt or problem. I use it all the time and could not be happier.

Wonderfully useful little app. I use Typinator every day for quick email sign offs and pasting the contents of the clipboard as plain text (very handy when copying and pasting between different programs). It also comes in very handy when filling in forms. It is the first thing I install on a new machine; I am so used to writing shortcuts that I feel a little lost without it. If you dig a little deeper it has an array of functions that allow you to insert all sorts of things like dates and images. It also allows you to work with variables, giving you the ability to include input fields into expansions, something that came in very handy when I had to report a mountain of statistical results in a consistent format.

I'm using Typinator for many years and it's a fantastic application. 100% reliable, I can't remember it ever crashed. I'm using it countless times a day while writing e-Mails or filling out text on websites saving me a huge amount of time. It's very simple to use and the friendly developers answer your questions pretty fast. With the regular upgrades for a fair price this app is a must have on any Mac. Even the newest version 8.0.1 still works on my 12 year old MacBook Pro.

I've used Typinator for years, and really love it. Recently, I had a problem where, after I updated a particular program, Typinator would make it crash. Ergonis tech support found the OTHER program's bug (not Typinator's) and fixed the problem, even though it wasn't Typinator's issue. 5-Star product, 5-star support! Highly recommended.

Typinator is a must-have app for FileMaker Pro developers. There is an entire snippet library already available for calculations, and with a clever combination of Typinator and AppleScript, you can also easily insert blocks of script steps into FileMaker's script workspace, or layout objects onto layouts. Typinator has saved me countless keystrokes, hours and headaches over the years. Ergonis's customer support is incredibly responsive, and they don't charge a subscription model. 6 Stars!

I have been using Typinator for a number of years, which in itself suggests that this is an app with a difference. Possibly, like me, you download an app and use it for a while and then stop using it because it's usefulness is not what you thought it would be. Think again with Typinator from Ergonis. I have used it and used it and used it through numerous upgrades, all of which further enhances a tremendously useful, easy to use and time-saving app. It may be a cliché but I couldn’t do without Typinator. The few times that I have asked for technical support this has quickly and efficiently solved my own self-inflicted problems. It is a great app provided and supported by a super company.

I’ve been using Typinator for several years now. It is fantastic. Typinator allows you to type in a snippet of text and have it expanded into much longer text that otherwise might be tedious and time consuming to type repeatedly. At its heart, that is what Typinator is all about, but it does so much more. If there is something you need to do repeatedly, regardless of how complex, Typinator can save you time and effort. While there are several companies making software that competes with Typinator, its feature set, build quality, usability, price, and finally their service and support, are outstanding.

I've used Typinator for years, and it has saved much time and drudgery. It helps with accuracy as well. Yes, Apple has a built it text expander, but it is highly limited. For instance, with Typinator, I can add a multi-line contact and information text that includes formatting and links. It has special sets for particular apps you use which makes keeping track of it easier. I've never had a problem with it and, to the best of my knowledge, it has never caused problems with other apps. I honestly do not know how people get along without it.

It took me no time to learn the simple ways of Typinator, and I was soon writing templates for my most common emails .But then I hit a snag .. I needed to colorise the outputted text dependent on the input. I didn't see anything in the normal forms so I wrote to support. And I was amazed at the speedy response—in less than six hours I had a program that did exactly what I needed using Case functions with variables. Thank you Typinator Support for your speedy and mast satisfying response to my problem.

Typinator does not only allow the insertion of simple snippets. It allows much more complicated replacements. It is a very great application. In addition, they have an absolutely outstanding service department, professional, reliable and extremely fast. Quality is really the master word for Ergonis and for their whole set of applications (Typinator, Popchar, Keycue,…).

Typinator is an excellent little tool that just quietly in the background and does it's job. I find it very useful when typing up Minutes of Meetings. eg I just type dotvwdot and it types in my name. Similarly for most attendees who have long, differently spelled names. Saves me a lot of time! Thank you! BTW, As with most programs, it's really easy to set up, once you've done the first expansion gotten your head around the way it works.
Oh, it works well with my database programming too, and has survived many updates of my software with no problems

Very advanced. It is not just for expanding texts. I can take variables, control the cursor and do calculations (days). Now, it takes abbreviations only to trigger a macro. I wish it also can be triggered with hotkeys. That is the only issue I have. Otherwise, it is great; closest you can get to Keyboard Maestro.

Textexpander does not work properly with Citrix sessions in Windows. Typinator does (mostly). Critical everyday for me so I was happy to make the switch. Increasing its reliability expanding into Citrix sessions will bump it up to five stars. Thanks for a great bit of software.

as others have posted, I too have switched to Typinator from Textexpander and for similar reasons. I also had issues with Textexpander upgrades on both desktop and iOS versions and have removed both. Fortunately I had an earlier version of Typinator that I kept updating, including snippets as a backup but never used.
Typinator has been a better app in all my workflows than textexpander. It works with all the applications that I use. The best thing that happened was when Smile decided to go the route they took and forced me to use a much better application.

As a long-time TextExpander user, I was unhappy with their new subscription model and decided to use the old app as long as it lasted. Today it failed to open. Fed up, I searched for alternatives. Found Typinator. Tried it. Love it. It can do all my old TE expansions, some far more easily. Example: I often use text expanding to change the case of text copied to the clipboard. In TE it took a PERL-script to do that. In Typinator, a simple code like this {Lowercase {clip}} does the trick. I look forward to using Typinator for a long time.

I started re-using Typinator after several years of trying TextExpander. After upgrading to current version (7.1), and reading the manual, I found that for my purposes Typinator worked quite well. I had a couple of technical questions, and had very quick and accurate responses. The manual is very well written, and in fact after looking at it more closely information about my questions was right there. So if you are looking for a useful text expanding app from a developer who provides updates, good documentation and excellent customer service, I highly recommend Typinator.

One of my favorite "go-to" apps. I use it for tons of shortcuts ("expansions" in Typinator terminology) include inserting formatted card symbols in a bridge book I am writing. Even more importantly, their service is the best I've ever encountered! Quick replies, often sending an expansion that I need.

An invaluable productivity tool, as necessary to my daily workflow as an email program, word processor, or web browser. Really; I think of it as an invisible extension of my keyboard. Unobtrusive, immensely capable, and fast. The very few times I've had to contact tech support to report a glitch or ask about a feature, they've been quick to reply, courteous, and helpful. (I had *very* different experiences with tech support for Typinator’s major competitor, one of the reasons why I switched a year ago, apart from the obvious technical superiority of Typinator.) If you type, you need a tool like this, and Typinator is clearly the best of kind for macOS.

I downloaded Typinator to see whether it would let me do something that I was unable to do with TextExpander, which I have owned for years. Typinator didn't let me do that thing, so I decided I probably won't buy it. But if I didn't already *own* TextExpander, the choice between the two wouldn't be close. Typinator is faster by a lot (especially when I'm executing external scripts), and better designed.

I too am a recent convert from TextExpander. However, my reasons for switching were not related to the changes in pricing put forth by Smile. I switched because Typinator is simply better at performing the same roll in my workflow. - Typinator is faster (expansions can keep up with my typing with no noticeable/appreciable lag) - Typinator is more powerful (RegEx expansions are a particularly nice touch, with applications I've only begun to explore) - Typinator is better organized (Somehow the organization of the window fits my thinking process better, calling external scripts is cleaner) Given that it's a background utility, it was easy for me to forget about how often I use text expansion in my day to day work, and not really experiment with any alternative apps. If you are like I was, and are using TextExpander (or some other program) because it's what you've been using for a while and what you've let sit in the background unquestioned, you owe it to yourself to try Typinator and see what you're missing.

I’ve now been using Typinator constantly for a couple years, and I’m completely pleased, which is hard to do (I‘m a power-user and a curmudgeon). I’m really impressed with the steady maintenance and development of the app. In addition to a rich set of features that just keeps growing, I’ve encountered almost no bugs at all, and certainly no serious ones. I’m sure they must be there, but Ergonis (developer) seems to be super diligent about squashing them.

I have been using Typinator for years and recommend it to my family and friends. That is why I have a family license. It is fast and easy to use. I started out using TextExpander because a Mac tech podcast recommended it. It was slow and somewhat difficult to use. Then I found out about Typinator and downloaded it. I realized right away how much better life was using Typinator. Typinator costs less and works better. I also appreciate that the great people at Ergonis haven't tried to gouge their customer like Smile software did recently. Typinator is one of the first programs I install when I do a clean install. Do yourself a favor and go to http://www.ergonis.com/products/typinator/. Then click on the Try button at the top right of the screen to Typinator. You will be glad you did. Also be sure to check out the date expansions. For example, I have set .d0 as my expansion of the current date.

I switch from TextExpander to Typinator several years ago (and before from the pionneer TypeIt4Me to TextExpander), that means I'm a long time user (about 20 years now) of this kind of software. I really LOVE Typinator, which is very reliable, discreet and editable on the flow (when you write a text with specialized vocabulary, you can put a new snippet on the flow, after writing 3 times the same annoying word or sentence). It's simple : i use it everyday, on a hourly basis, and some of my typing habits are born within Typinator. The 7.0 version promises to be a step forward, but it seems that you're allowed to manage your learning curve (your actual behaviour can stay identical), so I will try it right now and come back to give my further impressions. I only have one thing to ask to Ergonis Software: can you find solutions to export the power of Typinator to iOS device? I use to use my iPad more and more with a bluetooth keyboard (the lightweight and compacity of this combination is a game changer in my daily professional life), but I really, really miss my Typinator snippet while working on the iPad. I know Apple don't make it easy and I also now that TextExpander tries solutions that don't really work, but you're great devs, don't you? It really be a real opportunity to offer conversion of Typinator Snippets in the iOS system. Thank you for your great work.

This powerful app is one of my workhorse, hourly-used, favorite apps. I've used it for years and will continue to because it is consistently maintained and updated. It's smart. It is as powerful or as simple as I need for a variety of tasks: replying to emails and letters, coding css, html, etc, and designs with font callouts and paragraph formatting. It isn't flashy; it isn't "flat" design. It's smart, fast, and consistent. I'm not a pushover and don't give reviews unless I know the product, have found the support strong and on-going, and actually use the app daily. You will not regret this app, and I encourage you to play with it and get to know all it can do. The longer I use it, but more ways I find to rely on it.

Powerful and elegant. This latest version makes it the leader in this category. It's fast, it's got really nice tools to build your expansions with and the new features in regards to the expansion dialogs are great. I've contacted support several times to get help with some of the more advanced features and have always heard back quickly and the help has been thorough. Can't recommend this any more highly, especially this new 7.0 release.

Typinator is one of those apps I would call “must have”. I tried using expansion snippets years ago, nervously at first then suffering through years of slow response times and frequent crashes followed by upgrades which never fixed the problem with TextExpander. Typinator has TE beat hands down in the following areas: 1) it is reliable 2) it is fast 3) it is customizable using scripts 4) it sits in my menubar so I can easily and frequently update a snippet when I want to 5) because it runs as an independent app from the menu bar and TE runs from a different aspect of the system, Typinator is far more dependable in actual use. Typinator also has great customer support although so did the TE folks so I didn’t list that - here. TE taught me to believe that using a text expander tool was always going to be a bit problematic at best. Typinator has retrained my brain as to the ease and the power I experience using Typinator. I have some rather tough memory problems and if I start using an expansion program, it simply HAS to be consistent. Otherwise I will become confused, frustrated and I will stop using it. Typinator (Ergonis) customer support is fantastic. The guy who develops this app has gone out of his way on more than one occasion to assist me. I use a long expansion every morning. It has several calls to scripts that have been developed by Typinator and even improved with version 7. I take advantage of the ease I can pull Typinator’s main window up with a click on the menubar icon to keep my project data updated there. When I trigger the expansion it tells me how many days it has been since I submitted a letter, or how many days until I have a presentation or ... I have always wished that calendaring programs could do this too. But with Typinator, it’s easy - and reliable. This is one of those programs that is so good that I will never fuss about upgrades. Scrivener is another one.

Ergonis may be a bit opportunistic, but they have made good use of an opportunity rather than just exploiting it. With TextExpander going into a meltdown over subscription pricing, Typinator's cross-grade pricing has made it painless to switch, both on the wallet and in importing your snippets from TE. Most of my snippets imported with zero effort from me, although I did have to slightly tweak an AppleScript snippet. Now everything works just like with TE, except that Typinator runs faster and their company has not entered "take the money and run mode." If you're a TextExpander user and you're worried that switching to a new program would be too much of a hassle, Typinator has literally made it so that switching is less of a hassle than staying.

I recently switched to Typinator and found it to be an excellent alternative to TextExpander. I used TE for some time and never had a problem with the software or the tech support. But I'm not a fan of cloud-dependent software or subscription pricing, so when TE announced the big change, I went to look at the competition. Typinator caught my eye with its advanced features such as expansions that incorporate regular expressions, and built-in formulas to act on text as you type. For example, you can have a keystroke that returns a date x-number of days before today, exclusive of Saturdays and Sundays, or one to convert a paragraph to all-caps. Typinator converted all my TE snippets without problem, and tech support has provided fast and detailed answers to my questions about features I was unfamiliar with. All in all, switching has been a very positive experience.

I switched to Typinator for the same reason-subscription plan. And you know, it's just better. It's faster as others have mentioned. Great software and developer. I use their PopChar character insertion utility which is also fabulous. Yes, both those programs have paid upgrades from time to time, but in the long run, it's a better deal. FYI, TextExpander users, Typinator has an excellent way to import TextExpander snippets.

Just wanted to comment that I have used TextExpander for a long time. I switched a few months ago. I couldn’t find too many clear recommendations as to one vs the other at the time. But now, having been with Typinator for a while, it's far better than I would have ever expected. No glitches, no crashes, no problems at all - unlike TextExpander. I learned with Typinator that, if you are going to depend on expansions, they need to work consistently, otherwise, why do it? Typinator gives me that, and more. With it's use of scripts and a very helpful developer I now make very good use of scripts to track time since an event (using icalbuddy), and all sorts of things that I could never have imagined before. Typinator is a must have, IMHO. And no, I am not a salesman or part of Typinator in any way, just a very satisfied customer.

I'm yet another longtime TextExpander user who has jumped ship to Typinator as a result of Smile Software's new subscription nonsense. Typinator flawlessly imported all of my TextExpander snippets and it *just* works. It's a lot faster than TextExpander was as well. I used to get the "XXXXX has disabled secure input" that basically disabled TextExpander all the time and none of that with Typinator. I'm sorry I didn't make this switch sooner. The morning after purchasing Typinator I got mail from Smile Software that they've decided to cut their subscription prices to 50% off for upgraders as well as to continue offering support for and sale of the standalone Version 5 but I'm not looking back. It's too little, too late and Typinator seems to be a superior product anyway. I'd recommend any other disgruntled TextExpander users on the fence to grab Typinator within April for the 25% off switchers deal Johnny Thompson mentioned below in his excellent review. It's well worth it even at the regular price and, as mentioned, will include a free upgrade to the forthcoming Version 7. Get it while it's hot!

I've been using Typinator for about 3 years now. I couldn’t be happier with it. Extremely reliable: Never had an issue where it didn't work as expected. It is one of those utilities that you set up once and then you almost forget about it as it sits in the background and does its work. I also have a license to keyboard maestro and tried the typed string trigger, but Typinator beats it for the core functionality of typing text for you for ease of setup and use. I mostly use it to help me with stuff that needs to be typed over and over: ssh to various computers, setting up environment variables that change during a session,, hard to remember unix commands, e.g.: find . -name "*.cc" -exec grep -l -i "foo" {} \;, where the .cc and "foo" is input via Typinator's pop up window, html commands (right/left single or double quote etc.) and so on. Support is great. I had inquired once for something that I should have figured out by reading the manual more carefully. Nevertheless, response was swift and friendly. I really have no negatives to mention, thus a 5 star rating from me.

I've switched to Typinator! I'm a long-time (~4 years) user of TextExpander, and I've been unhappy with TextExpander even before their insane pricing change. TextExpander is super slow at executing scripts (about 5-10 seconds on a non-SSD, about 2-5 seconds on an SSD), which was one of the main new features in their new version. Speaking of which, their major versions barely add any features and cost an arm and a leg. Their recent switch to a ridiculous subscription-based pricing model made me look at alternatives. I am so happy I discovered Typinator instead.

The winner of them all is Typinator by a large margin.
[*] Fair pricing.
[*] Everything it does is *super fast* and it includes extremely advanced power-user features. Everything I always wished TextExpander would have is here in Typinator!
[*] Full Dropbox (and others) syncing of your snippets and shell scripts, simply by moving the "Sets" folder location to a cloud-synced location like your Dropbox folder. Any changes to the files are instantly detected by all Typinator apps on all computers, even when it's running at the time. This is a far cry above the unreliable sync that TextExpander had.
[*] Shell scripts are literally shell scripts. They're stored in a special "Scripts" folder, end in ".sh", and are marked executable. This means you can use your full, syntax-highlighting text editors to write long, advanced scripts that have full access to the web, your filesystem, etc, so that they can do very advanced things.
[*] Shell scripts execute *instantly*. This is thanks to Typinator just needing to execute the script and capture the output (unlike TextExpander which runs osascript and uses temp files, and aType which must write the script to a file before executing it). I made a PHP shell script that outputs the current date, and Typinator expanded it in about 100ms every time, even on a non-SSD. My jaw dropped. This finally gives me access to super fast scripting in my snippets, allowing me to do things like a web scraper that pulls down prices and outputs the latest up-to-date price.
[*] You are able to use regular expressions as your snippet type, which means that you could use something like "(ee|rr|nn)name" as your "abbreviation" and a single snippet will react to eename, rrname and nnname, and your snippet itself can be script-based and use the "ee", "rr" or "nn" portions to determine what to output based on how you typed that abbreviation. This is great for snippets where you want tiny variations in output. It's also great for things like currency formatting (make a snippet that reacts to a sequence of numbers followed by some special characters, and make it grab those numbers and format them and output them).
[*] Shell scripts can receive arguments, i.e. "{Scripts/Test.sh what}" to send "what" to the script. That makes it easy to re-use the same script across multiple snippets and give it an argument that tells the script to slightly adjust the output based on what snippet is executing it. Heck, you can even execute the same script with different arguments via a single snippet by using Typinator's regular-expression text snippets, to capture custom input every time, like "{Scripts/Test.sh $1}" to send it the 1st captured regular expression argument (that you typed) from a regex-based abbreviation.
[*] Typinator includes built-in functions like regex replacements inside of your snippets which lets you do many advanced things without ever needing to create a shell script at all. For instance, I made a Regular Expression snippet with "([0-9]+(?:\.[0-9]+)?)xx" as the pattern, and set it to Plain Text and wrote the following as the text replacement just to test it: "Please pay me \${/Regex /[0-9]/1//$1/}!". The result is that if I type "293.22xx", it expands to "Please pay me $111.11!". That was just a test of the built-in regex replacement function, which in this case replaces all digits with the number "1". There are many built-in functions and I am very impressed.
[*] Fill-in forms, dropdown menus, variables etc are fully supported and work better than TextExpander ever did. The popup window is faster, clearer and only asks for the field values (instead of showing all the distracting boilerplate text too).
[*] The "place text cursor at location" feature is instant (unlike TextExpander, which crawls one character at a time). Typinator just jumps directly from expansion to placing the cursor at the correct location. It's a godsend since I use lots of snippets with text cursor placement and it's wonderful to be able to keep typing instantly after expansion, instead of waiting for the cursor to move (like with TextExpander and aType).
[*] The Typinator language is very easy; all functions are within {} brackets, and you learn them quickly. For instance, {"xxdate"} would include the contents of the "xxdate" snippet, etc. It's therefore super easy to include snippets in each other, etc. Even script-based and input-form based snippet inclusions work perfectly.
[*] The company has an unbeatable track record of excellent OS support and stability year after year for all of their applications, and friendly customer support.

If you need extremely fast shell scripting, cursor movement, powerful built-in functions (like regex text replacement), and *mindblowing regex pattern matching as your abbreviation triggers*, buy Typinator.

I will never again give a single cent to TextExpander. They've shown their greed for *years* and now yet again with their latest money-hungry scheme, and they're not even the best on the market. Typinator is light years ahead in power and speed.

Great utility, very easy to import snippets from Textexpander. Never failed on me. I admit no to be a power user, but the previous application had few issues like disabling itself rendomly, typing the clipboard instead of the snippet, or not working at all on some java application Customer support is great and friendly.

Typinator is brilliant. It must have saved me about one year's worth of typing since about 2002. I have a natural history photo library for which I prepare images for the website: with three or four characters Typinator can give me two lines of description for a species, always correct of course after the initial tiny effort. It might have been invented for me. And any time I have a problem and ask for support the response is just about instantaneous, effective and very pleasantly personal. Thanks, Typinator!

If you work in several fields of knowledge, if you write repetitive things, if you are always searching for the quickest and more efficient way of doing things, this one is for you. It can go from simple text expansion from abbreviations to REGEX and interactive external scripts. It's good to see when a company delivers such a great product with constant improvements and great user support.

Typinator continues to be an indispensable part of my life. Easy to configure this code does a lot more than correct the words which I mis-spell most often or retrieve any password, stock phrase, reference, or block of text which I have programmed. In all the years I have used this code, it has never crashed, never slowed my machine, never failed to perform as expected. Like a lot of people I have closings, passwords, key phrases, and entire letters that I need to use on a daily basis. Loading these items ONCE in Typinator means that I never have to type these resources out again. Typinator is a critical component of my work life. I wouldn't have made it into grad school let alone through if it wasn't for this constant, supportive companion. From my experience, I cannot recommend Typinator, Key Cue, and PopChar more highly.

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.

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.

No new features but a new version number and so you need to pay the full price is you want to update. That in less then a year after paying full price. I also did not receive any warning of mail about this.

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.
