Phew, it’s hot out there. Six months have sped by in a blur since we opened the gate and shooed TypeIt4Me 5.4 for Mac out into the wild. Today, we’re pleased to say that its wee iOS cousin TypeIt4Me Touch 3.0 has finally been released and is available for download on the App Store.
In addition to bug fixes and iOS 8 optimisation, this update offers a keyboard extension you can easily switch to in order to access and expand your TypeIt4Me abbreviations in any app.
The primary intended use of the iOS app itself remains the speedy composition and sharing of notes. As for the TypeIt4Me Touch keyboard extension: this is not designed to replace your default keyboard, but to complement it. Apple’s built in shortcut functionality and superb QuickType algorithms offer excellent predictive and corrective features for swiftly and accurately typing short words, names and phrases, so we didn’t set out to reinvent the wheel.
Our aim with TypeIt4Me Touch 3.0 is to provide you with a useful keyboard add-on that you can quickly switch to for dipping into your library of lengthy, multi-line or even multi-paragraph TypeIt4Me abbreviations when you need them.
Addresses. Boilerplate texts. Blocks of programming code, markup or CSS. Literary quotes. Scientific formulae. All these and a whole lot more can be right at your fingertips, ready to be entered into any app you’re using with just a couple of keystrokes. Best of all, if you store TypeIt4Me snippets created on your Mac in iCloud, you’ll be able to manage and sync these across all your devices.
Time for us to get back to the lab for now. We hope you enjoy the summer and that TypeIt4Me Touch will free up a little more time for you to spend in a sun lounger sipping a pina colada.
