"Phrase Express is #1"
PhraseExpress keeps your phrases ready to go. Just hit your chosen HotKeys! You could enter your email, firstname.lastname@example.org, with a single peck at the keypad. Or, use it to type foreign letters; for instance, [ALT + n] could produce the Espanol enyeh (n~); non-english letters can be produced on the keys by entering a code manually, but for more info you'll have to google up the subject, i.e. "alphabet codes" to make this gimmick work. Bartels Media's PhraseExpress stores your phrases for anytime use. It's a fairly straight-forward app, though not really minimalist.
Has more features than I'll ever use. And every so often (every other month) notifies me as to the number of words I type per minute (slow), and how much money it has saved me? Not being economically dependent on my typing skills, I seriously doubt the accuracy of the statement that "PhraseExpress has saved me $1.23 this year."
Though, the features like 'auto-suggest,' and so on can be disabled in the menu so the program's seemingly random 'suggestions' disappear.
There are many distinctive or notable ways in which the operating system could be extended not worthy of the effort of developing commercially, that it's nice to find such a broad offering of freeware products here at CNet. The gap between the consumer expectation and the experience of computer ownership is so much more narrower than it would have been otherwise.
I've used this program from for several years. Then I searched to replace it with something a little simpler; no disabled auto-suggest or macros or anything. But nothing I found and downloaded was a contender. PhraseExpress Portable is my current ****** shortcut.
Download it and be happier.
