TypeIt4Me - Let your Mac do half your typingDownload TypeIt4Me 5.2.2 free 30-day trial (16MB)

TypeIt4Me is the original text expander for Mac. Any time you enter text by typing it at the keyboard, TypeIt4Me can help you do it faster and more accurately.

Define a number of abbreviations and the full text (or picture) clippings that they represent, then watch the Mac expand them on the fly even as you continue typing.


Type a short abbreviation and have it expand to a word, a phrase, even several pages worth of text in the blink of an eye.

Expand your custom-defined shorthand: some words and phrases are both common and awkwardly long. Find yourself using the word "qualifications" a lot? With Typeit4me you could just type "quls". Similarly, "ue" could become "user experience", "infsy" could expand to "information systems", and so on.


Breeze through your email correspondence.

You'll find TypeIt4Me is a real boon if you write lots of emails. Once you get it up and running, you need never type your full name, address or email signature again. Common greetings, pleasantries and signoffs, too: "ds" could be "Dear Susan", while you could define "tyvmfye" to become "thank you very much for your email" and so on. You get the idea.

TypeIt4Me is not just great for short snippets, though - it will help you type those long messages with multiple paragraphs faster, too. It's particularly useful if you find yourself wearily writing very similar messages time and again to multiple individual recipients. With TypeIt4Me, you can write it just once then add it to your list of abbreviations so that it's available on tap as an expansion. No more repetitive brain strain injury for you.

TypeIt4Me puts all your boilerplate texts right at your fingertips. No fooling.

Perhaps you work at a law firm and you constantly find yourself hunting around for that generic Terms of Service clause you're always copying and pasting into contracts. With TypeIt4Me it could always be just a couple of keystrokes away. Or maybe you work in desktop publishing and are always fumbling around for the latin text you use to populate sample layouts: simply typing 'loremtxt' could instamagically paste whole paragraphs of filler content into your InDesign or Quark document.




You don't have to remember all your abbreviations, though. You don't even have to type them at all if you don't want to. TypeIt4Me stays in your menu bar and allows you to see all your abbreviations in a handy dropdown list. Click on one and the full text or picture will instantly be inserted in your current active document or window.


Correct misspellings - with zero effort.

You know those annoying typos that are always catching you out? Tell TypeIt4Me about them and they'll be a thing of the past. Because "tihs" can become "this", "taht" can become "that" and "optalmoscope" can become "ophthalmoscope". You'll be able to type a lot faster, without stumbling over the common misspellings that used to slow you down. Add all of your most common misspellings to your TypeIt4Me abbreviations list, then type as recklessly fast as you like, leaving Typeit4me to instantly fix those mangled mistakes as you go along.


Once you get used to this way of doing things, you'll honestly wonder how you ever coped without TypeIt4Me. It's the business.
