I’ve tried several options as a replacement for TextExpander over the past few months.
A bit out of frustration with their move to subscription pricing, a bit out of frustration with the iOS keyboard issues (none of their fault by the way, that’s on Apple) and a bit out of curiosity whether alternatives would be as good (or better).
Well, long story short: I’m back in the TE family… although not entirely.
I have renewed my subscription and am actively using it again. BUT: not for all expansions.
I’ve decided to keep all relatively small abbreviations like expanding an email address, names, greeting or typo corrections in the macOS/iOS text replacement. This ensures most of the “simpler” expansions work automatically from the native keyboard on both macOS and iOS.
Thus saving me a lot of switching keyboards on iOS.
For all more complicated snippets (mostly work related) I’ve gone back to TE.
It’s just SO much easier to get it to do what I want, make it look the way I want, and change when I need than all the alternatives I’ve used so far. I’m still not a fan of subscription pricing, but in this case…
