Only a few months ago I explained in The Typing Timesaver how I use text macros to save time, annoyance and even money.
The ‘secret’ for us Mac users is an essential utility called TextExpander. Even though it’s worth every cent of its normal cost, for the next couple of weeks you can buy it at half price, because it’s also coming to the iPhone:
Coming to the iTunes App Store August 26 .
With TextExpander touch, you can compose email messages, notes, and tweets on your iPhone or iPod touch using your TextExpander snippet library.
To celebrate the release of TextExpander touch, we’ve cut the price of TextExpander for the Mac 50%! Until September 9, 2009, TextExpander is [US]$14.98.
TextExpander on my Mac saves me heaps of time — more than 7 hours on this machine alone in the last few months. I can’t wait to see how it can help me on the iPhone.
If you’re a Mac user and you don’t use a macro utility then just buy this and start using it. You won’t regret it. The time you save will soon repay the rather trivial cost.
