    "Been using it to save time in reports forever"

    September 12, 2014   |   By condobobe

    Version: ActiveWords 2.0

    Pros

    The program has many uses to quicken opening of programs which I never got into much to be honest however if you need to shortcut common phrases and use it as a sophisticated auto correct it is absolutely amazing.Try it out as it is something worthwhile and the developer is great to communicate with.You can use a letter typed for instance to paste an entire paragraph in a split second if you wish and if doing repetitive communication this is your friend.It works in all places you can type.

    Cons

    None really other than making sure to turn it off when going from business to social communication.Example I might use "me" as a short cut for "meta"l in professional reports then have it pop up as I instant message someone referring to myself by accident as Metal...LOL
    Second comment is they need better marketing for such amazing software.

    Summary

    Great for pro use to short cut your time .In other words an amazing business tool that is totally relevant and should be more well known.

    "Have had for 8 years...love it."

    February 12, 2014   |   By imanjabahia

    Version: ActiveWords 2.0

    Pros

    * pull up documents with a quick double click and a few letters. That's basically all I use it for. Use the first 5 letters of my documents.

    Cons

    * seems to slow my computer when I boot up.

    Summary

    Can't believe this is not standard on all machines.

    Version: ActiveWords 2.0

    Pros

    None that I had a chance to see.

    Cons

    "Love it! Windows should come with this by default."

    June 28, 2012   |   By DavidJaworski

    Version: ActiveWords 2.0

    Pros

    Always available. Easy to use. Powerful if you want to tap its scripting capabilities. I started using ActiveWords many versions ago and used it to expand common words, then phrases, and soon entire responses to common email questions. This is the first piece of software I put on any new PC. I now use it for simple text expansion as well as macros to grab names and start an email response that is already personalized. The support is great. I love it!

    Cons

    It is not available on the Mac. I use TextExpander by Smile software on the Mac. I wish it could do everything that ActiveWOrds does on my PC.

    Summary

    Dive in. Start with words. Then phrases. And soon sentences, entire messages and scripting will be flowing. Other similar programs (free and paid) fall far short of what ActiveWords delivers for me. I have tried them all. Thank you for creating such a great product!
