Smart Typer

By wegenerlabs

Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.


Smart Typer is the cheapest and easiest-to-use text expander available on the Mac App Store.

We think it is an application you will love. Define a shortcut (e.g. "brp"), define the phrase (e.g. "Best regards, Paul") and you're done. That's how easy it is to use Smart Typer!

Whenever you enter the shortcut, Smart Typer will magically replace it with the text you want. So, whenever you enter "brp", Smart Typer will replace "brp" with "Best regards, Paul".

Moreover, it does not matter where you are in the system, Smart Typer will always work. It will save you time when you are entering personal data such as addresses in a web browser, email application, word processor or any other kind of application.

Enter a shortcut in any app on your Mac, press the space bar and do what you love in the time you have saved.

Customer Reviews

Very Good, helpful, needs some tweeks

I use this for templates and instructions that I have to send out dozens of times a week or even a day. The formating of a template on one line was a little awkard the first time using it. I solved that problem by writing out what I want in text edit and then converting to the ST format.

It does not like text that starts with a numeric and some non-alphanumeric characters seem not to be recognized.

For the price and the functionality, I am very happy and have recommended this to my co-workers.

Best App for the Price!

I work with the same phrases a lot, and set the short codes up with a number at the end, to make it easier and avoid my regular words getting confused for short codes. If you set this up correctly, it works perfectly! Best app out there for this purpose. I mean really, for $0.99 you can't go wrong!

Scam artists

Well. I came to Mac from an HP, where I used Phrase Express CONSTANTLY. I hated that it wasn’t available for my Mac, so I went in search of something comparable. I wasn’t thrilled that it was a paid app, when Phrase Express worked brilliantly and was free, but I was willing to pay to have back the convenience I was accustomed to.

I paid for it, installed it, gave it permissions, set it up, submitted my phrase and my chosen shortcut, and saved them...

When I try to actually use it, I enter the shortcut, and either nothing happens, or after a couple of seconds, it disappears. And that's it. Nothing appears in its place.

I emailed Smart Typer and explained what was happening. NO RESPONSE, none! I have given them 4 weeks to get back to me, but they just ignored me instead.

Save your money. This company will just steal it. Shame on them.
