    Pros: 

    Faster to type!

    Cons: 

    UI of the app could be improved.

    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.

    Pros: 

    Syncs across platforms, works extremely well

    Cons: 

    Had issues transferring / activating license in the past - hopefully works now

    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.

  • Pros: 

    One time Purchase

    Cons: 

    Where is the iOS app?

    Been using text expander for years. Was happy to see a one time purchase instead of subscriptions. But there is no iOS app, which makes it useless for me.

    Don't know why no one here has commented on the same.

  • Pros: 

    Works as advertised

    Cons: 

    Randomly stops expanding text once in a while. I have to restart it and it'll work fine.

    Started using aText after Text Expanded moved to an obscenely expensive subscription model. Can't complain. It works perfectly.

    Pros: 

    Simple and straightforward. Does its one job really well.

    Cons: 

    There are some (rare) occasions where a webpage's content is secure and aText is disabled.

    Not a whole lot to add. No subscription necessary -- just a one-time purchase. Great product.

    Pros: 

    Much cheaper then textexpander

    Cons: 

    none I can think of

    A great replacement for the horrible business model of TextExpander
