Workflow is a killer feature. Also, you can configure Alfred to be called by double tapping one of the modifier keys. This is super convenient.
I cannot imagine how to use Mac without it. Finding apps by name is more convenient for me that do it with standard ways that iOS provides
- 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.
I've used this app a lot when I was working in customer support, and often time miss it when I have to write my email (or anything repetative actually). I will download it again and get back to using it!
Great that PH also surfaces "older" products.
aText is great. Make shortcuts like @@ for your email address, @ $ for work email etc. Things you type a lot like addresses, phone numbers, greetings and so on. If you moderate a forum or group this is a godsend as wel.
- I recommend you check out PhraseExpress. PhraseExpress is available on Windows, Mac, iOS & Android. PhraseExpress can also import Textexpander snippets.
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 now, it's one of my essential apps. New versions are usually insta-buys — when I read that v7 was released, I bought it without test-driving it first. Same thing happened a year or two later with v8. It's worth every single penny.
It does repeating boring tasks for me. And also some fun logging stuff.
- Adem Bilican made this productI recently released canSnippet, it is a snippet management application that works really well with code snippets. Sharing option is not implemented yet but will come in future releases. Don't hesitate to contact me if you have any question.
- I actually found the Keyboard > Text settings on System Preferences of MacOS (any version, really) to be quite handy for most of my uses. I just create a bunch of "$variables", and every time I type them across apps, it just expands to full copy.
