"This is a product that I literally don't think about until I get on a system that doesn't have it. Then I miss it. I miss it like a missing thing that's missed. It's that handy and useful... If you type a lot and you aren't using TypeIt4Me, you're wasting more effort than you know."

"I've discovered that this program is absolutely great as far as writing is concerned. Having built my data file one word at a time, I can for the first time write as fast as I can think. Or, to type those two sentences with expansion turned off: iv dscvd ta th prg s absl gr afa wrig s ksnd. Vg blt my data file one word at a ti, i c f t first ti wri as fast as ic tq."

"TypeIt4Me [is] an absolutely indispensable tool. Period. I find more uses and possibilities for it literally every day. In every application. Everything from standard expansion of plaintext abbreviations - to phrases, frequent quotes and information i need quickly- to insertion of images, rich type text, names of authors, artists, names,dates, and so much more. Truly, the only limit to TypeIt4Me is the limit of the user's imagination. TypeIt4Me keeps getting better and better."

"I really like your product. I teach educational and psychological assessment at a university.
Responding to student work often takes hours, particularly when there are a number of things that need to be said. TypeIt4me has probably cut my grading time in half while allowing me to make very specific recommendations about things that tend to be recurring problems for my students."
- Rick Brigham

"Thanks for making TypeIt4Me. Among my non-Apple software, your tiny application has consistently proven to be the biggest, best, most-used workhorse in my software arsenal. I can't even begin to fathom the amount of keystrokes I've saved over 18 years — but I can wrap my head around how much stress I've avoided thanks to TypeIt4Me. TypeIt4Me is incredibly personal, yet universally helpful — Thanks, and Bravo!!!"

"We have 5 copies of TypeIt4Me and we have been using this little app since the mid-nineties. During that time this utility has probably saved us thousands of hours when inputting repetitive but different pieces of information into databases and other applications. This little application is a hero and we thank Ettore for his development and continued support of this wonderful little utility."
