This Text Expander Autotext App puts an end to tedious touch-typing:

● Organize & access frequently used text from a handy snippet menu.
● Expand autotext abbreviations into longer phrases.
● Sync snippets with other iOS devices or computers.


The unique phrase menu saves you from memorizing autotext abbreviations:

● Access over 600 phrases with just five taps!
● Descriptive menus instead cryptic shortcuts
● No more autotext cheat-sheets
● Fat-finger compatible large menus


● Swipe-up keys for upper case letters
● Swipe down keys for numbers or symbols
● Dedicated phrase menu for instant access
● Smart bar with auto-complete suggestions


The Freeware App version is free for personal use, limited to 10 phrases and excludes features of the Standard/Pro Edition, that can be obtained with an "InApp" purchase:


● Save more than 10 phrases/folders
● Professional use allowed
● Statistics can be disabled


The Pro Edition additionally supports macro functions:

● Fill-ins and input forms
● Custom time/date stamps
● Date/math calculations
● Nest & link phrases
● Multiple choice phrases
● Conditional phrases, random text variation
● Clipboard operations, counters and variables
● Phrase customization with user input

Please test all(!) features in the free edition before making a purchase, which enables you you to make a confident and risk-free purchase decision. Paid features can be used in the freeware as well (with license notifications).


● Macros can be used with the Pro Edition App but they must be created/edited on a desktop Mac or Windows computer. The App is not designed to create/edit macros.
● The PhraseExpress iOS App does not support formatted text (bold, italic, etc.).
● The PhraseExpress App does not support external hardware keyboards.

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.

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.
