A shortcut gets you from Point A to Point B in a shorter amount of time than it would if you did not take the shortcut. Pretty simple premiss right? But when it comes to shortcuts on your Mac, it might take even longer just to find or remember what that shortcut even is.

I just started using Setapp and so far it has been great! There are tons of great apps provided at a monthly subscription, which seems to be the future of sales. I am not sure their process for including apps in their system, but definitely worth a look.

aText

Type faster using abbreviations for common phrases

aText accelerates your typing by replacing abbreviations with frequently used phrases you define.

Michelle Nickolaisen- Owner, Bombchelle Industries
I use aText and I've had 1-2 very minor issues with it over the years, but nothing major. It's definitely worth the $5 fee if you just want something that does text shortcuts & don't necessarily want or need TextExpander's other features.
Allan Caeg- Founder, NorthStories.io
Looks compelling at $5 one-time fee
Arun Sathiya- Happiness Engineer, Automattic

Lets you do anything with your Mac. Automate all the things! Script apps that don't have scripting support (by replaying macros containing keypresses, mouse movements, clicks, whatever), have your Mac react to USB events, date/time, your input, device keys, external triggers, sleep/wake events, filesystem triggers, etc. I use it heavily for a few years by n… See more
