TextExpander, the super handy little utility app for iPad and iPhone, is on sale today for 99 cents. That’s down from its standard price of $4.99.
This is a popular and award-winning app that’s a big timesaver on the desktop and on our iOS devices. Here’s a little of its App Store intro:
Type faster on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch using short abbreviations that expand into long snippets.
With TextExpander touch, you create a library of abbreviation shortcuts for snippets of text that you use frequently, such as addresses, URLs, and standard replies. Tap that abbreviation, and it automatically expands to the full snippet. (You can even insert today’s date automatically with the default abbreviation “ddate”!) New: Sync your snippets with Dropbox!
Though the app cannot run in the background and work automatically with all your other apps, it is supported by over 100 top quality apps for things like writing, note-taking and productivity. These include iA Writer, Byword, Plain Text, Simplenote, OmniFocus, Things and lots more stellar apps.
The app also supports Dropbox sync, so you can share you text snippets between your desktop and iPad app.
Here’s an App Store link for TextExpander.
