Write more by typing less
June 13, 2012
If you write a lot, you’re probably going to like this.
There’s a Mac app called TextExpander that makes it possible to write dramatically faster — even if you’re already fast on the keyboard.
The app allows you to create keyboard shortcuts for text.
In a nutshell, it works like this:
- Put a text snippet (such as “My name is David”) in the app.
- Select a shortcut for the snippet (such as “MD”).
- Write “MD” and the text “My name is David” automatically appears.
This app makes it possible to write more by typing less. It can save a lot of time and effort for someone who writes regularly.
