When I switched from Windows/PC to OS X/Mac back in early 2004, I tried every Typinator-like app available for OS X, looking for something to replace AsUType (for Windows). I settled first on TypeIt4Me, but later switched to Typinator (v. 1.3) as the best of the bunch. I have been using it ever since--and it just keeps getting better: really neat in this 2.0 version are the autocorrection feature and the ability to create different sets of abbreviations for different purposes.
Another of the outstanding features of Typinator (in my opinion) is the fact that, if you make a mistake in typing an abbreviation, you can backspace, retrace your steps from the point of error, and the abbreviation still expands (unlike TypeIt4Me and some others).
I also like the feedback sound so that you know when an expansion has taken place, rather than having to check visually.
