TypeIt4Me

6.2.2
09 August 2019

Completes partially typed words for you.

Overview

TypeIt4Me expands your abbreviations as you type, and works in all applications, not just one. It also lets you define meaningful abbreviations, so you can type them naturally, as part of your writing, without memorizing - or reaching for - obscure ⌃⌘xyz combinations. And now, thanks to Apple lifting its restriction, both the Mac App Store and direct sale versions of TypeIt4Me are now allowed to offer iCloud syncing.

Anytime 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 text entries that they represent, then you watch the Mac expand them on the fly even as you continue typing!

Student and Upgrade licenses are also available.

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?

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.

Joi,

We are truly sorry that this situation has frustrated you and we’re dismayed to see it described as disingenuous. It is absolutely not our intention to hoodwink anyone, so we’ve clearly failed somewhere if that’s your perception. We do our best to cater to everyone’s wishes while being as transparent as we can, but this is not always easy within the constraints Apple has placed on us. These are the facts:

- It’s possible to switch from the Mac App Store version to our direct sale version *for free* just by showing us you paid for it there. This has been our policy for years. It’s explained in the FAQ section of our site and in various blog posts.

- There are customers who still want to be able to buy the older TypeIt4Me 5.4.x from the Mac App Store. Some because they find it easier to pay for and install software that way and others because they don’t want to change their Macs’ gatekeeper settings to allow non-Apple-vetted apps to run. They are willing to accept the trade-off between convenience/peace of mind and fewer features. If we remove the app from the store, these people will be unhappy.

- Apple will not allow us to add new features to the Mac App Store version. They now only accept sandboxed apps and a sandboxed TypeIt4Me couldn’t function. We are also unable to edit the current Mac App Store listing page description to inform customers that a more recent version exists. The app name and description are locked and can only be changed when a new version of the app is released. Moreover, Apple would not be pleased if we were to explicitly direct customers to purchase our app outside their store.

Keeping everyone happy, communicating all the above succinctly and getting the message across is a challenging balancing act and we do appreciate we need to do better in this area. Admittedly, we’ve been so focused on completing development work on TypeIt4Me 6 that we perhaps didn’t take enough time to consider other aspects of the release like retail messaging. We had assumed our current policies would accommodate and appeal to the broadest cross section of customers, both new and existing. You’ve given us something to think about. We’ll revisit the way we market our software and see if we can come up with a better model that remains as fair as the current one while leaving less room for misunderstandings. In the meantime, please do get in touch to claim your free upgrade licence if you need one - we don’t want anyone to miss out.

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.

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.

Hello Randy, that's not quite right: TypeIt4Me 6.0 is a free update if you've already purchased a licence for 5.5.x directly from Ettore Software within the last 2 years. Also, it does offer iCloud sync with the iOS version. We have informed MacUpdate but they haven't yet corrected the listing details.

There is currently a 60% off launch sale, so even customers using older versions who don't qualify for the free update can grab an upgrade licence for $3.60.

Guy@ES,
Okay, the upgrade price is less than $5 so that I can sync it with the iOS version. I just bought the iPhone version. It makes me switch to a new keyboard to type the snippet, instead of automatically working like it does with Mac. (Been thinking about asking how to get my money back for it.)

Also, for me, the only feature that I use with TI4M is the date and time snippets. MacOS's Keyboard System Preference does all the same thing as TI4M.

I hate to be so down on the product, as I said in my previous post, I've been using it for a long time. Just that new features aren't even enough to pay $3.60. Sorry, Ricardo.

We're sorry to hear you feel that way, Randy. If this one failed to impress, I guess we'll just have to try harder next time. It does sound like you have little use for all the bells and whistles of a dedicated text expansion app. We took the time to add new features that a large number of people requested. If you are not interested in these features, that's fair enough, we wouldn't ask or expect you to pay for something you're not going to use.

Regarding the keyboard limitation on iOS, this is down to a security restriction Apple has placed on its mobile platform that doesn't apply to the Mac. iOS is much more locked down, so apps like ours need to offer their own keyboards instead of hooking into Apple's native keyboard. We did our best to make this clear in the App Store listing blurb but I appreciate it may have been easy to miss this salient point before purchasing. Unfortunately, we are unable to issue refunds for App Store purchases because it's Apple that sells the apps, but if you are in the EU then I believe you may be able to take advantage of Apple's 14-day return policy. You could try contacting their support team about it. Good luck!

All the best,
Guy

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.
