    Faster to type!


    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.

    Syncs across platforms, works extremely well


    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


    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


    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.

    Simple and straightforward. Does its one job really well.


    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.

    Much cheaper then textexpander


    none I can think of

    A great replacement for the horrible business model of TextExpander
