Don’t listen to the whiners


Nearly every negative review here refers to the pricing model, not the app itself. This is so unfair to the developers. Even the negativity about the keyboard is not warranted. The developer explains why the app can’t use the iOS keyboard and it’s a restriction levied by Apple.

I’ve used TextExpander since 2008 and couldn’t live without it. The iOS app may not be perfect, but it’s the best they can do, given the constraints of Apple.

1 trick pony and subscription model

v from midlo

I am not only done with Text Expander but i am looking for a replacement for PDF Pen as well. Goodbye Smile Software, you charge too much for too little. Subscription services will be the death of many devs, for example, someone has say 12 apps they need on their iPad. Now all 12 app’s devs go to a subscription model and that user is out $50 or $60 per month. Add a cell phone bill, cable, internet and so on. People end up renting everything and own nothing. If your income falls you have to give up something if you rent everything and own nothing.

Greedy, greedy devs


Despite having bugs in previous versions of the app and neglecting to fix them, dev decides to release the exact same app and charge you every month for it.

Edit: one year later all they have really did is to depreciate the old version 3 app hoping that you’ll switch from the 5-dollar app that it is into paying 50 dollars a year for it.

No way.
