The Let Down

PhraseExpress is very disappointing. With such little the in the market for an app that does spell check, grammar check, and rephrase some sentences this app had a real shot.

I would bear a question been more than happy to give this app 5 stars, but sadly it had to just not live up to a 5 star ranking. See I went and spent a lot of time inputting the information so it would be ready for me to use at a moments notice. Come to find out when I turn on the app all my information white, clean not exactly efficient and not worth five stars.

Hope the team are PhraseExpress can fix this as you have a stab at being a standout app.

wish it supported external keyboards

I love PE, and my computer life really depends on its near-constant use.

I was SO excited to get the mobile version, but the fact that it can only be used with a software keyboard renders it almost completely useless for me. The ability to use my phrases on iOS with the software keyboard is nice, sure, but I very much wish I could use it with my external keyboard.

Thank you for your kind feedback. We also wish to support hardware keyboards and are still investigating. Our apologies for the inconvenience.

Keyboard does not work.

I enabled full access but the keyboard still says "full access missing". So I can't pull up the phrases as I am writing in another app. I tried removing and dding the keybord again, but it did not help.

They don't have proper support. Their support page redirects to a bunch of other options like "community forum for macro support." and "consulting services." Not helpful.
