Wish your Mac TypeIt4Me abbreviations would also automatically expand as you type them into any app on your iPhone or iPad? Now they can. As of iOS 8, you can now install the TypeIt4Me Touch keyboard and quickly bring it up in any app to access long snippets of frequently used text. Addresses, email signatures and boilerplate paragraphs stored locally or in iCloud will always be right at your fingertips. Use them in Mail, Safari, Messages or anywhere else you can type.

If you purchased TypeIt4Me from the Mac App Store and keep your abbreviations in iCloud, you can use them on your iPhone and iPad. They will be available in the TypeIt4Me Touch app and keyboard as long as you’re signed in to iCloud. You can also add new snippets and sync them across all your Macs and iDevices.

If you downloaded TypeIt4Me for Mac directly from the Ettore Software website, iCloud syncing of your abbreviations is not currently possible (Apple only allows Mac App Store vetted apps to access iCloud). However, you can still email your Mac TypeIt4Me snippets files to yourself and open the attachments in TypeIt4Me Touch on your iPhone or iPad to import your abbreviations.

Never used our TypeIt4Me text expander on the Mac? Not a problem, the included samples and quick start guide will ease you into it. Want to type “Best regards”? Just type “br” and leave TypeIt4Me to expand it to “Best regards”. Build up a library of shorthand abbreviations for snippets of text that you use all the time. These will automatically be expanded on the fly as you tap them out on the keyboard, saving you time and keystrokes.

TypeIt4Me Touch is also a useful standalone note-taking app; create and store snippet abbreviations locally on your iPhone or iPad and gradually define your own custom shorthand for quickly jotting things down. Store as many notes as you like to use later. These can be directly emailed, messaged or tweeted straight from within the app, or copied to the clipboard in a couple of taps.

With TypeIt4Me Touch installed on your iPhone or iPad, greetings, common phrases, boilerplate texts, URLs or even large chunks of programming code can all be just a couple of prods away. Enjoy :)

What's New in Version 3.0

You probably thought we'd forgotten about you, right? Not a chance. This update is the culmination of over 9 months of hard work. We've eliminated lots of bugs, done some tinkering under the hood and optimised the code for smoother performance. Most importantly, we've taken advantage of the new extensibility functionality Apple introduced in iOS 8 to add a custom keyboard extension.

Yep, that's right. You can now expand your TypeIt4Me abbreviations in any app on your device. Quickly switch to the TypeIt4Me keyboard any time to dip into those long snippets of frequently used text. Addresses, lengthy form letters and epic boilerplate paragraphs stored locally or in iCloud will always be right at your fingertips. Use them in Mail, Safari, Messages or wherever you like.

Enjoy. Our goal for the next update is for TypeIt4Me Touch to be able to give you foot rubs and make you coffee and pancakes in the morning, but that's a little way off.

Better then Text Expander

Now this is a text substitution app for the iPhone. I have tried text expander for The iPhone and found it full of bugs. I would enter my snippet and the first two would work but every snippet entry after would not work. A few times, text expander for the iPhone erased my entire group of snippets, and sense I don't have TypeIt4Me or Text Expander, I had to re-enter every last one of them. So, that's why I must commend you on adding the Mobile Me component to TapIt4Me. I won't have to worry about losing my snippets again. Everything just works.
I'm not going to blame you for Apple's idiotic decision not to allow background processing.

Excellent app.

P.S. Could Leopard's build in Text Substitution app snippets be transfered to this app?

Buyer's Remorse: Hard to sync • Limited function

I use TypeIt4Me for Mac, but was not able to transfer my abbreviations to the iPhone. I'm sure it's possible, but I gave up after several failed attempts when I realized that even if I got it on, what I really want is a system-wide text-substitution function. I want to be able to enter text in an IM app and have it correct my errors and expand my abbreviations. It's not the developer's fault. Apple really needs to get on this. Snow Leopard actually has a decent text substitution system with a limited interface, but in my opinion it works better than other 3rd party software I've tried. In the future, any shortcuts we teach our laptops and desktops will sync right over to the iPhone, and will work in any app. In my dreams.

3/5 stars

Works as advertised....

After communicating with software developer, I have had my initial concerns and misunderstandings corrected and TapIt4Me works as advertised. It would be really nice if Apple would open the API enough so that this software could work on the iPhone as it does on the Mac (working inline with Mail, SMS, etc would be an awesome awesome enhancement).
