By , Aug 31, 2014


Heads up folks, Stack Social is offering an incredible deal right now for a popular Mac productivity app. For a limited time, you can grab Smile Software’s TextExpander 4 for 50% off from the deal site, saving you a cool $17.

For those unfamiliar with the application, TextExpander allows you to save frequently used text and photos as keyboard shortcuts. This includes everything from an email address, to a canned response that’s paragraphs long.

Here are some of the app’s top features:

  • Snippets – From a single line signature to paragraphs of boilerplate, just drop them into your snippet collection and have them at your fingertips – literally
  • Build an Email Signature Library – Always insert the perfect email signature from your personal snippet collection, even illustrate with photos or logos
  • Automatically Fix Typos – Watch TextExpander magically unfumble your fingers, also includes the TidBITs AutoCorrect Dictionary containing more than two thousand common typos
  • Achieve Form-Filling Bliss – Breeze through forms, put your address, email, phone and fax numbers in your snippet library and call them up with a handful of keystrokes
  • And much more

And here’s a video overview of TextExpander:

We’re huge proponents of TextExpander here at iDB, and several of us use it on a daily basis. It’s one of those apps that once you’ve used it, it’ll be among the first applications you install on new or freshly-restored computer.

The app typically costs $35, but with Stack Social’s 50% off promotion, you can grab it for just $17. It comes as a digital download, and includes a 30-day refund policy and all of the typical updates and support as the original.

    With iOS / OSX keyboard shortcuts already avaibale for free I don’t see how text expander can be so useful. You can set up tons of shortcuts and there syncd with icloud (at no cost)

  • Nathan Jung

    No problem, Cody.

  • Church Said

    aText is much cheaper and can do more.

    you’re welcome, Cody.

    Is there a windows version of a similar program?

    • This is a micro part of AutoHotkey (AHK), which is free. AHK has been around since 2004 and it offers the following capabilities:

      – Ability to expand/auto-correct abbreviations as you type them. For
      example, typing “btw” can automatically produce “by the way” (which is
      basically what TextExpander is asking $40 for along with some
      sugar-coating, http://bit ly/1bcFb9X)

      – Automate almost anything
      by sending keystrokes and mouse clicks. You can write a mouse or
      keyboard macro by hand or use the macro recorder.

      – Create hotkeys for keyboard, joystick, and mouse. Virtually any key, button, or combination can become a hotkey.

      – Remap keys and buttons on your keyboard, joystick, and mouse.

      – Respond to signals from hand-held remote controls via the WinLIRC client script. Re-mapping those remote signals to a combination of keystrokes on your keyboard is an example of such response.
