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. You can even insert today's date automatically with the default abbreviation "ddate"!
Access all your TextExpander snippets while in Mail, Safari, anywhere!
How does that work? Make an abbreviation “eemail” and have it expand into “email@example.com.”
Use advanced TextExpander snippets in over 60 apps with integrated support, including Byword, Dispatch, Drafts, Fantastical 2, Launch Center Pro, OmniFocus for iPhone, OmniOutliner for iPad, TaskAgent, and Tap Forms. See www.smilesoftware.com/apps for a complete list.
With advanced snippets you can even use fill-in-the-blanks to breeze through form letters.
If you use TextExpander on the Mac® you can sync your snippets via Dropbox or iCloud Drive, or share snippet groups with iPhones and iPads on the same Wi-Fi network.

What's New in Version 3.5.5
- Improves iCloud stability
Dropbox broke but iCloud still works
Smile is no longer updating this as they want you to switch to the new subscription version. Unfortunately, this means that they seem not to have updated it to use the new dropbox API as of Oct 2017. Fortunately, however iCloud syncing still works.
Fails to work with Smart Keyboard
This, like other keyboards (which is how it manages to work in iOS), doesn't work if you attach a Smart Keyboard. Probably not Text Expander's fault, but they could mention this. Take off the keyboard and it works OK.
