TypeIt4Me overview

TypeIt4Me is a text expander that replaces your personal shorthand abbreviations with the longer snippets of content they represent, as you type. It works in almost all applications, not just one.

Any time you enter text in your Mac by typing it at the keyboard, TypeIt4Me can help you do it faster and more accurately. First you define a number of abbreviations and the full texts or picture(s) that they represent, then you watch the Mac expand them on the fly as you continue typing.

The purchase price is a one-time fee, not a recurring subscription. Discounted upgrade licenses are also available.

What’s new in version 6.3.8

Updated on Apr 20 2022

Bug fixes:
  • A bug affecting date language settings has been corrected. Date snippets that have been set to expand in a specific language other than the system default should now always expand in the correct language.
  • Addresses an issue that would sometimes cause a crash when using the duplicate snippet picker window.

Used this app for years now and am generally quite satisfied with it. Sometimes it seems your prefs are lost somewhere and you have to reactivate your collection from database, by just clicking on it, no problem if you know that you have to do that. But customer service told me quickly how to deal with that. A recent issue is that the program is not starting any more when I switch on my computer, it's presence in my menu list is only accidentally. So, when busy and trying to use your favorite abbreviation, nothing happens. You have to manually start the program and then it works. Cumbersome. Has been like that for a couple of months now and the recent update doesn't change that. It only happens to Typeit4Me, none of the many other start up apps are affected by this.

Hello, I am a hooman and I am not a fake review, my dog can testify. I just bought aText...seriously, it's the price of 2 coffees here in Australia. It has saved me countless hours of monotonous text entry. It does the same tihing as Typinator, Texpander, TextExpander and Rocket Typist. I have Rocket Typist included with my Setapp subscription and I could not cope with how unreliable it is. I have noticed a few bugs here and there with aText, so wish the updates would be more frequent, but otherwise a solid text replacement that is very lightweight and won't dent your wallet.

Great app & love the iPhone integration. A touch pricey to purchase both, but if you are the sort of person prepared to pay a great developer to make your life easier, you won't be disappointed

I was an early fan and I've never looked back. I can call this an absolutely essential part of my utility arsenal and well worth the price for all of the conveniences it provides. Don't use it for typing shortcuts so much as for saving snippets of commonly re-used code. Responsive and flexible support too...can't beat that. Well done!

The developer has left the legacy version 5.4.8 of TypeIt4Me for sale on the Apple store. This in my opinion is pretty disingenuous, since there is no mention of another more current version selling for the SAME price mentioned on the app store? You have to go to his website or other sites like MacUpdate to get the current 6.0.2 version. Below is a link to the reason why the legacy version is left on the apple website. https://tinyurl.com/y7lu6wbs I had no idea that developers could or would leave older programs on the Apple store. So buyers beware… Always verify that the version on the Apple store is the latest version, by checking the developers website.

I think TypeIt4Me is one of the best text expansion apps available, with certainly the best price, not to mention a companion iOS app. I tried the trial version, but for me, it just wasn't as polished as the TextExpander Life Hacker subscription, plus I've been using TextExpander since it first started. That said, I do think for anyone who hasn't invested many years using TextExpander and doesn't feel the $20/yr subscription price (discounted from past license) is worth it...then TypeIt4Me is a great choice.

The option to activate two or more snippet sets at the same time is a great improvement, well worth the modest upgrade fee. I'm sure the ability to drag and drop files from other apps will be welcome., too. I've done both of these things the hard way already and these changes are more than welcome.

New hot key search window, iCloud sync with the iOS app and you can finally make lots of snippet sets active at once. What's not to like?

So, for a current user, which I have been since version 1.0, the upgrade is $8. But if you want the "iCloud Sync with iOS version" feature, you have to pay $20 for a full version. Boo! I'll keep using 5.5.3 and not worry about the sync feature.

Actually the link to the FAQ explaining differences between the MAS version and the other leads to a 404 page. You'll find some info on this in http://www.ettoresoftware.com/mac-apps/typeit4me/frequently-asked-questions/ instead.

An amazing app with the ability to use simple text, formatted text, pictures, and even animations. It also has the added convenience of storing snips on the clouds to be accessible for all macs associated with same account. Picked it up for 5 dollars, what a steel.
One more thing that I may want to see is being able to use more than one snippet group at the same time. I read the objective behind making them separate, but creating an optional grouping can be great, so instead of having a huge list of snippets under one name, the user can subdivide them into groups e.g. greeting, business, animations e.t.c.

Why does MacUpdate tell me that there is an update to 5.3.2 when the download gives me 5.2.2 and the developers site only has 5.2.2 and the application's check for update also says i'm update with 5.2.2 ??? OR...is that version 5.3.2 available at apple gatekeepers ??? Well Mr MacUpdate, what say ??? Oh, by the way, this application is a must have in my tool box of typing helpers. Give the developer a top 5 rating.
