Thanks to TextExpander for sponsoring this week! TextExpander from Smile continues to be my most-used app on my Mac, and it’s a huge timesaver on my iOS devices. It’s an honor to have Smile’s continued support!

Your time is too valuable — and life is too short — to constantly retype what could be a snippet. Turn the things you type often into short triggers that expand everywhere you type.

Make snippets for short things you use constantly:

  • email addresses
  • website addresses
  • today’s date

Make snippets for long things you use regularly:

  • directions
  • reference requests
  • proposals
  • answers to common questions

Summon these snippets in any app on Mac, Windows, iPhone, iPad, and even ChromeOS using an abbreviation, or search for them using a hotkey while you’re typing.
