Users reported a bug that prevents dates from expanding in version 5.3 (the Mac App Store version released 9th July). We fixed this and two other bugs (related to Add a clipping and TAB triggering in Safari) yesterday and 5.3.1 is now “Waiting for review” in the App Store. Apologies for the inconvenience.
The 75% special offer in the Mac App Store ended on August 1. Thank you to all who purchased TypeIt4Me and made it climb high in the Mac App Store charts. The price has now reverted to the normal $19.99 both in the Mac App Store and directly from http://ettoresoftware.com
Hear ye, hear ye! Calling all Mac fans and text expansion enthusiasts. For a limited time only, you can take advantage of a Mac App Store exclusive offer and buy TypeIt4Me for the downright silly price of just $4.99 (USD). There’s no need to rub your eyes, you read that right. $4.99 in US dollars. That’s £2.99 for those of you in the UK and 3.99€ for eurozone dwellers. We’ve gone soft in the head with Lion mania and to celebrate the imminent launch of Apple’s latest big cat operating system – Mac OS X 10.7 – we’ve temporarily slashed the price of TypeIt4Me in the Mac App Store by 75%. This special offer will end on August 1st. If you act fast, you can grab yourselves a stonking great bargain.
Even those of you who have already purchased a TypeIt4Me licence from us directly in the past might wish to consider grabbing it from the Mac App Store* now while it’s as cheap as chips. Doing so would entitle you to free updates for all future TypeIt4Me 5.x versions, meaning you could avoid stumping up the standard $8.99 fee for upgrades that will otherwise come into effect 18 months from your initial purchase. Food for thought, no? Why not spread the word and let your friends get a slice of the action, too. …Mmmmmmm, tasty, tasty TypeIt4Me.
* Note that before buying it from the Mac App Store, you will need to quit your existing copy of TypeIt4Me and move it from your Applications folder to the Trash. Don’t worry, your existing clippings and settings will be preserved. After purchasing TypeIt4Me from the Mac App Store, simply double-click your clippings file (usually stored in Home or Documents folder and ending in .typeit4me).
