San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) October 16, 2007
SmileOnMyMac has released TextExpander 2.0, a new version of its customizable typing shortcut tool for Mac OS X. With TextExpander, users can define abbreviations for frequently-used text strings and images, also known as snippets. When an abbreviation is typed, it expands automatically to the full snippet. The new version of TextExpander incorporates many features for organizing, sharing and syncing snippets.
A 30-day fully-functioning demo of TextExpander can be downloaded at
http://www.smileonmymac.com/textexpander/download.html. The price is $29.95. A new Family Pack license is available for $44.95, which covers up to five computers in one household. Mac OS X 10.4 is required.
In TextExpander 2.0, users can organize snippets into groups. Preferences can be set by group; each group can be enabled or disabled in specified applications and can have its own alert sound.
Sharing snippet files is easy with TextExpander 2.0. The new version supports multiple snippet groups from external and even online files. These groups can be set to update any changes made to such files at regular intervals. For those who use snippets on multiple computers, TextExpander 2.0 offers synchronization via .Mac.
Adding new snippets has been simplified in TextExpander 2.0. Snippets can be automatically generated from a selection or from the Clipboard via user-customized hotkeys.
"TextExpander users are very passionate about the program," said Greg Scown, co-founder of SmileOnMyMac. "When we asked them what they wanted to see in the new version, we got an incredible response, with lots of good ideas for new features. We've done our best to incorporate most of them in TextExpander 2.0."
