Rocket Typist

2.2.2
30 August 2019

Expand typed abbreviations.

Overview

Rocket Typist is a modern Mac application, created with simplicity in mind. During a regular day, most of us type the same text over and over again, wasting an enormous amount of time in the process. Why not let your computer do some of that work for you? Once you have collected your snippets, you will never have to type them again. Here are just a few examples:

  • Commonly repeated phrases such as "How are you?"
  • Signatures with or without images
  • Current date and time
  • Names, addresses and other contact details
  • Hard to remember technical terms
  • Support replies to your customers
  • Code snippets for developers
Features:
  • Type an abbreviation and expend it into a snippet
  • Sync your snippets and category across all your devices using iCloud
  • Use macros to make your snippets more dynamic
  • Snippets can either be plain or rich text
  • Select snippets from your Mac's Touch Bar
  • Export and import snippets

What's new in Rocket Typist

Version 2.2.2:
New Features:
  • A symbol in the snippet list now indicates whether the snippet is formatted or not
  • For better compatibility with Bartender, the status item is not being highlighted when accessing the snippet menu via shortcut
  • The maximum abbreviation length has been increased slightly
Bug Fixes:
  • Sometimes snippets were skipped during export
  • The Rocket Typist Document icon had some glitches
  • There was an unnecessary delay before pasting snippets

Requirements for Rocket Typist

  • Intel 64
  • OS X 10.11.0 or later

Absolutely amazing and slick Text Expander app. Also supports a CSV import which makes it a really powerful tool. Thanks for improving my daily life Witt Software!!

But wait, there’s more. iCloud synchronization is useless, but at least you can export snippets manually, right? WRONG. When you attempt a manual export, the app - you guessed it - crashes. Every. Single. Time. And like with iCloud sync, only a fraction of your snippets actually get exported. In my case, 13…out of 427. You must be kidding me. I didn’t care to check whether the lucky 13 were entirely exported. Since iCloud sync results in missing abbreviations and/or snippet text, it wouldn’t surprise me if export was just as bad. ocket Typist if a is half-assed and half baked. It’s *you* who should be ashamed to dare charge people for such a useless product, Witt Software. Needless to say, still zero answer from the developer. I just sent him yet another message requesting a refund. Not holding my breath. On a side note, I have submitted 2 1/2 star for Rocket Typist. For some reason, the rating mysteriously disappears every time and only the review remains… unlike all 5 stars ratings, perfect score that this joke of an app still enjoys somehow. Trying to submit another rating with this review. Shooting for 1 star this time, just to see what happens. A joke from start to finish.

Hi Glass1075,

My apologies, something obviously did get wrong here. I have received your mails and answered them now. Usually I reply within three business days, however due to personal circumstance, it took a little longer this time. I am very sorry for any inconvenience this has caused you.

As I'm writing you in the mail there seems to be something broken with your local database of snippets as I have no other users reporting similar bugs with the latest version.

Cheers
Daniel

Updated to 2.2. Nothing is fixed. iCloud sync is still a mess (see below for more info) and the app crashes every time you uncheck "enable iCloud synchronization". Go ahead, try it...

Alright, my patience has run out. I’ve had enough of these solo developers who don’t stand behind their products. Over a week that I’m trying to get a response from this individual, and he obviously can’t seem to be bothered. Enjoy the 7 bucks, Witt Software. Everybody else, stay away. Rocket typist app is a crashing mess and iCloud sync is a joke. More importantly, this developer obviously doesn’t give a rat’s behind about his paying customers and simply ignores them. 1/2 star for the nice interface and feature set. Other than that, it’s unstable and unreliable at all get out to the point of being unusable. Until this developer starts taking his enterprise seriously and Rocket Typist starts working as advertised, don’t waste your time and go with an established and trusted option.

Pros: Slick minimalist interface. Not overbloated with features, and offers just the right ones. Unfortunately, it’s all downhill from here. Cons: - The app crashed countless times as I entered snippets. - The snippet editor window closes and reopens on its own every time a snippet is expanded. - The iCloud sync is simply undependable: out of the ~400+ snippets I created on my desktop, dozens were simply never synced onto my laptop while many others are missing their abbreviations, snippet text, and/or their label. Also, the names of some of the folders I created didn’t carry over either and were reset to default (“untitled”). I have sent several messages to the developer over the past week through his website’s support page and via email, and have received no reply.

The only review is a paid review. Go with one of the established options like Typinator or aText.

Excuse me, but that is a lie. You should be ashamed of yourself, since you are hurting a small company with a new product that tries to do things differently than the established ones. Did you actually try Rocket Typist at least once?
