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.

Type faster using abbreviations for common phrases

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

Hugo Müller-Downing
Unlike Alfred, this _just_ does snippets, nothing else.
Jason Corpus- Marketer and Entrepreneur
Yes! Kept scrolling this list to find aText noted. Even shortening the simplest of snippets (Names, Dates, greetings, etc) saves an incredible amount of time. Similar to TextExpander in functionality, but much less expensive and equally powerful.
Arun Sathiya- Happiness Engineer, Automattic
Incredibly fast text expansion app for Mac.
