Automatically expands your abbreviations while you type, saving time and allowing you to write much faster by substituting long snippets
There are many common words or phrases made up of a lot of letters and/or symbols that need to be written on a regular basis, and typing them out every time can slow you down considerably.
TypeIt4Me alleviates this issue by automatically substituting various abbreviations for longer words or phrases, saving you the trouble of typing them fully. You can create your own abbreviation dictionary, sync it, run Applescripts, and even use autocorrect to reduce typos.
The app’s main function is fairly straightforward. Once you type an abbreviation defined in the preferences, it will be replaced with a longer snippet as soon as you press Space, Tab, or any other configured trigger. You can specify which apps the feature should be active in, and even set up different behaviors for each application.
You will need to create your own set(s) of abbreviations, depending on what you normally write. These sets can be synchronized via iCloud or another cloud service, should you wish to use them on multiple Macs or even the iOS app.
Easy to use and highly configurable
While you can change a lot of settings, TypeIt4Me is very straightforward to use. The interface has a simple, clear layout, and you can always check the menu bar for a list of all abbreviations available in a set if you can’t remember them. It also helps that a very detailed user manual is included.
It seems there are very few things you can’t change about how the app works. From menu bar/Dock visibility, triggers, expansion behavior, hotkeys and sync options to several autocorrect options with customizable dictionaries.
Great productivity tool for users who do a lot of typing
TypeIt4Me is probably best suited for those of us who find themselves writing a few key phrases repetitively over the course of a day, as well as those working in more technical fields where difficult-to-type terms can be a hindrance. It’s safe to say that if you’re looking for an app like this, TypeIt4Me is perfect for the job.
