When it comes to text expansion, Typinator has always shined for its speed and robustness as well as compatibility with arbitrary applications. The new version of Typinator introduces a new technology that makes the expansion and insertion of text even faster than before. Besides that, the new version includes a long list of other enhancements, including improved compatibility with XCode, BBEdit and TextWrangler, Eclipse and many Java applications. Finally, the update fixes among others a problem that caused Typinator to forget its license information when preferences were synced with MobileMe. All this makes Typinator 3.5 the fastest and most compatible text expander ever.
"When we design a product, we follow our overall concept and try to 'make it as simple as possible, but not simpler'. Instead of overloading a product with features, we emphasize on ease-of-use, speed, and robustness. When working on Typinator 3.5, we got inspired by what Apple did with Snow Leopard. We decided to take the time to build on a well-established feature set and optimize it concerning speed and robustness," said Günther Blaschek, CTO of Ergonis Software. "The result is an even snappier and more compatible version of Typinator that comes with a new expansion technology, taking the speed of text expansion to the next level and reinforcing Typinator as the fastest text expander in town".
Typinator is a powerful, yet elegantly simple solution that works across all applications. It detects specific sequences of typed characters and automatically replaces them with text snippets, graphics, URLs, dates and special characters.
For business users, Typinator leads to a layer of operational consistency and productivity across heterogeneous applications. A standard customer service response, a signature image on an email, a clause in a contract - each of these can be inserted in any application with just a couple of keystrokes. For technical users, Typinator automates typing of code and the implementation of documentation standards.
