SmileOnMyMac, developer of creative productivity tools for the Mac, has acquired the award-winning software Textpander from creator Peter Maurer. The typing timesaver tool will be updated and released as TextExpander.

SmileOnMyMac has acquired Textpander, the customizable typing timesaver tool, from developer Peter Maurer. The utility, which lets users define abbreviations for frequently-used text strings and images, will be updated and released as part of the SmileOnMyMac product line shortly.

The update will include new features, and a modified product name, TextExpander. Specific features, release date and price have not been finalized.

"As Textpander users ourselves, we've seen how much time and effort it saves us," said Greg Scown, co-founder of SmileOnMyMac. "Besides customizing our tech support responses and automating coding, it's great for all the little things we'd otherwise have to type out each time we use them, like product names or today's date."

First released in August 2005, Textpander quickly garnered high ratings from users and reviewers, including 4.5 mice from Macworld magazine.

"This is great step forward for Textpander," said Textpander creator Peter Maurer. "With their great dedication to developing software, SmileOnMyMac will turn Textpander into something even better."

SmileOnMyMac's other products are DiscLabel, PDFPen, PageSender, PhotoPrinto and BrowseBack, which won Best of Show at Macworld this year.
