An Apple spring: new treats in store, general announcements and other assorted nonsense. 30/04/2012 No Comments

Good day to you fine folk out there in shiny Appletopia! Remember us? We’re back with a long overdue update to bring you up to speed with the latest developments and tittle-tattle here at Ettore Towers. We realise the unusually prolonged bout of radio silence may have had one or two of you absently wondering if we’d perished at the hands of frozen night terrors during the winter. Well fear not, for we managed to elude the White Walkers and now that spring has sprung [a leak] we can emerge blinking into the drizzle to give you the lowdown.

So just what have we been doing besides slurping porridge and bingeing on Game of Thrones? To cut a long story short, we’ve been working our socks off. Those of you who’ve been following our software development efforts for a while will have noticed by now that when we go quiet it means we’re super busy squashing bugs, responding to customer feedback and painstakingly building superior iterations of our app offerings. In recent months we’ve been particularly focused on beefing up TypeIt4Me in order to better support your evolving stenographic text expansion needs. Not only is a Mac update nearing completion, but – without wanting to give too much away – we also have a little treat in store on the mobile side of things. Stay tuned for a forthcoming announcement

…In other news, after the ringing endorsement TypeIt4Me received from Lifehacker in their Mac Text Expansion Faceoff last year, we’re pumped to see the venerable Adam Dachis is still a keen TypeIt4Me user. You can watch him discussing its usefulness in this Take It to the Cloud podcast (about 16 minutes in). The dude’s not on our payroll, we swear – he’s just awesome :)

Lifehacker declares TypeIt4Me the winner 04/02/2011 No Comments

One of our customers has just kindly brought it to our attention that the good folk at Lifehacker have published a pretty comprehensive rundown of all the main text expansion apps currently available for the Mac. They looked at TypeIt4Me, Snippets, TextExpander and Typinator, comparing the pros and cons of each – and ultimately gave TypeIt4Me their seal of approval. We’re always keen to get some insight into users’ perspectives and The Mac Text Expansion Faceoff makes for interesting reading. Obviously we’re chuffed to bits that they declared TypeIt4Me their favourite. It’s always good to hear we’ve still got it after all these years :)
