You know how when you get a new Mac there are a few apps which you just have to install right away before you can do anything? For me, TextExpander is one of those apps.1

TextExpander 4 is a solid update. I use this app not just for expanding text but also for fixing common typos, making sure I spell certain people’s names right, powering through emails more efficiently, properly capitalizing certain product names, pasting code, and a whole, whole lot more.

If you consider yourself a Mac power user and you don’t use TextExpander, who do you think you’re kidding?

  1. As is LaunchBar, Keyboard Maestro, and 1Password. Once I’ve got those in place it’s like the lights are back on and I can stop fumbling around in the dark and stubbing my toes on the furniture.
