Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Wish your Mac TypeIt4Me abbreviations would also automatically expand as you type them into any app on your iPhone or iPad? Now they can. As of iOS 8, you can now install the TypeIt4Me Touch keyboard and quickly bring it up in any app to access long snippets of frequently used text. Addresses, email signatures and boilerplate paragraphs stored locally or in iCloud will always be right at your fingertips. Use them in Mail, Safari, Messages or anywhere else you can type.
If you purchased TypeIt4Me from the Mac App Store and keep your abbreviations in iCloud, you can use them on your iPhone and iPad. They will be available in the TypeIt4Me Touch app and keyboard as long as you’re signed in to iCloud. You can also add new snippets and sync them across all your Macs and iDevices.
If you downloaded TypeIt4Me for Mac directly from the Ettore Software website, iCloud syncing of your abbreviations is not currently possible (Apple only allows Mac App Store vetted apps to access iCloud). However, you can still email your Mac TypeIt4Me snippets files to yourself and open the attachments in TypeIt4Me Touch on your iPhone or iPad to import your abbreviations.
Never used our TypeIt4Me text expander on the Mac? Not a problem, the included samples and quick start guide will ease you into it. Want to type “Best regards”? Just type “br” and leave TypeIt4Me to expand it to “Best regards”. Build up a library of shorthand abbreviations for snippets of text that you use all the time. These will automatically be expanded on the fly as you tap them out on the keyboard, saving you time and keystrokes.
TypeIt4Me Touch is also a useful standalone note-taking app; create and store snippet abbreviations locally on your iPhone or iPad and gradually define your own custom shorthand for quickly jotting things down. Store as many notes as you like to use later. These can be directly emailed, messaged or tweeted straight from within the app, or copied to the clipboard in a couple of taps.
With TypeIt4Me Touch installed on your iPhone or iPad, greetings, common phrases, boilerplate texts, URLs or even large chunks of programming code can all be just a couple of prods away. Enjoy :)
What's New in Version 3.0
You probably thought we'd forgotten about you, right? Not a chance. This update is the culmination of over 9 months of hard work. We've eliminated lots of bugs, done some tinkering under the hood and optimised the code for smoother performance. Most importantly, we've taken advantage of the new extensibility functionality Apple introduced in iOS 8 to add a custom keyboard extension.
Yep, that's right. You can now expand your TypeIt4Me abbreviations in any app on your device. Quickly switch to the TypeIt4Me keyboard any time to dip into those long snippets of frequently used text. Addresses, lengthy form letters and epic boilerplate paragraphs stored locally or in iCloud will always be right at your fingertips. Use them in Mail, Safari, Messages or wherever you like.
Enjoy. Our goal for the next update is for TypeIt4Me Touch to be able to give you foot rubs and make you coffee and pancakes in the morning, but that's a little way off.
As a long-time user of TypeIt4Me on the Mac, with a nice file of short “triggers” to long expansions, I was eager to get this in iOS. The initial offering as a stand-alone app was not satisfactory. Now it comes as a keyboard extension, and with a shared library in the cloud for all my devices, it is nearly perfect. The keyboard itself could be better (proper quotes, dashes, etc.) but it’s good enough to be a useful tool. So pay the man already and get your i–device working harder for you!
