Type faster on your iPhone®, iPad®, or iPod touch® in any App using the TextExpander keyboard. The keyboard enables custom abbreviations to expand into long “snippets” of text, such as addresses, URLs, email signatures, and form letters.
** Requires a TextExpander account ** Keeps your snippets current on all your devices ** Sharing options let you share the wealth of knowledge stored in your snippets with your circle **
How does TextExpander work? Make an abbreviation “eemail” and have it expand into “firstname.lastname@example.org.” You can even insert today's date automatically with the default abbreviation “ddate”!
Use all your TextExpander snippets in Mail, Safari, everywhere, using the custom keyboard.
Use TextExpander snippets with any keyboard in over 70 apps with integrated support, including Byword, Dispatch, Drafts, Fantastical 2, Launch Center Pro, OmniFocus for iPhone, OmniOutliner for iPad, TaskAgent, and Tap Forms. See smilesoftware.com/apps for a complete list.
With advanced snippets you can even use fill-in-the-blanks to breeze through form letters.

Ratings and Reviews
This subscription exploitation ...
... has to stop. The “service” here is wildly over valued by a factor of about 20. It’s a farce. If I could rate the app / service zero stars I would.
Smiley and crew are not the only guilty party — about 90% of app devs who rubbed their hands and thought they could cash in are similarly exploiting this delivery model.
**I say all this all as a developer of significant tenor.**
tl;dr: You’re all doing it wrong and wrecking the model. If you want to be sustainable get real with your valuations.
Subscription model means goodbye
This is a very good piece of software, but the transition to an overpriced subscription model means I’m deleting this application.
There are alternatives just as good.
No Meaningful Updates
Since the app went subscription only, there have be no meaning or useful updates. Stopped using TE a while ago.
