Automates typing of frequently used text and pictures and auto-corrects typos

Have you ever experienced the frustration of having to repeatedly type your name, e-mail address, and other words or phrases again and again? Do you often misspell words when typing? Typinator boosts your productivity by automating the process of inserting frequently used text and graphics and auto-correcting typos. Drag-and-drop import from Textpander, TextExpander, and TypeIt4Me makes migration to Typinator a no-brainer.

Besides the normal use, I started to replace search extensions in browsers. For example, keywurl in Safari vs. search drop down in Camino. Just use typinator to put the search string into the URL field, and Camino starts to behave like Safari, plus you avoid the version problems of keywurl and Safari 4.
Worth the money IMHO.

Just used this program via macheist, works nicely.

its a huge security risk to do passwords, if your password is too long, try shortening it?

Doesn't allow to text expansion in password fields, where all you see is ······ instead of the letters/numbers. Other apps that can't do this either and are slow too are TextExpander and TypeIt4Me. They all suck. Maybe one day we'll get a good one. None is worth the price at all.

I used to use TextExpander, but for some reason their latest updates gave me problems with clip insert expansions. Glad I found Typinator. It's better than TextExpander.

I have had problems with the other apps in this class but Typinator works as advertised. Tech support is prompt and courteous.

Works exactly the way I want it. Tried both Rapidowrite and Textexpander but had problems with both of them.

I tried TextExpander and TypeIt4Me (which I actually purchased) and Typinator wipes the floor with them. It expands fast in all apps I've tried (unlike TypeIt4Me), it has lots of options as to expansion (i.e., per-abbreviation space options), and the full size interface is much more useable than the prefpanes of the other two. It also has nice per-app and per-abbreviation exclusion capabilities. My only gripe is that it's a bit of a pain to create new abbreviations because there is no shortcut for it, but I can live with that.

Great little app.

Just got Typinator as part of the MacUpdate Bundle Deal. I can already see this is going to be a great surprise. Looks like my money was well spent.

I run 3.0 and I cant do without it, works in all iWork apps on my machine.

I purchased Typinator when it was featured on MacZOT! I don't understand why it [version 2.0, at least] is not as popular as Textpander.

"It does what it says on the tin."

Typinator does everything I thought it would do, and does it well. Most of my comments on this site refer to programs I really like and how they "just work." This is another such comment about another such program.

I have a few handy abbreviations set up, and they were why I purchased the program but, through use, I've come to realise I most value the auto-correct feature. My common typos, the ones I make through inattention or exhaustion, are corrected immediately regardless of whether I'm e-mailing or replying to an instant message.

It makes me look better than I really am. More programs should do that! :-)
