Editors' Review


PhraseExpress allows you to create many different types of macros to automate various tasks on your computer. While you may barely notice this program running in the background at times, it will quickly make your life much easier and can significantly reduce your total keystrokes each day.


Demonstration Macros: There are quite a few different Demonstration Macros included in this program that can give you an idea of what the app is capable of. Options include Date and Time, Data Picker, Multiple Choice Text, Mouse Cursor Control, Keyboard Layout Switching, and Automatic Email Creation.

Basic interface: As soon as you install and open this app, it begins running in the background and is accessible from the toolbar in the lower right-hand corner of your screen. Clicking the icon brings up a straightforward menu, with some options that expand to show other, more detailed menus. There are no bells and whistles to be found here, but the streamlined design is efficient and effective.


Learning curve: This app offers tons of functionality, but it can take some time to learn all of the ins and outs. This isn't the type of program you can just install and begin to use right away, but the effort you put in to learn how to use all of its features will be worth it in the end.

Bottom Line

PhraseExpress is a versatile and efficient program that can help you ease all types of repetitive tasks. It's completely free, and although it may take some getting used to, especially for novice users, the benefits are worth the effort in the end.

"Flexible and easy to use with many possibilities"

Good UI
Does not usually get in the way
Flexible usability options - many different use cases
Useful and concise macro language


Cost of new versions going up steadily, but have so far been able to justify it.


I have been using this product as a licensed user steadily over the last 4-5 years and it has consistently saved me significant time and reduced the tedium that would otherwise have been involved with storing, remembering, and/or locating small pieces of text needed to do my day-to-day work - often due to systems that are poorly integrated and need information to be manually passed from one system to another.

The macro language is quite flexible. You can, for example, use macros to convert the structure of the clipboard content before pasting (i.e. to replace carriage returns with commas to produce a CSV list), and dialogs can be used to insert variable values into a block of text on the fly (useful for pasting modified SQL queries to query databases, for example).

The product can also be used to automate keystroke sequences for things that don't have keyboard shortcuts, which is another side-benefit.

And, the clipboard cache is very helpful - it helps to not have to use a separate tool for this feature.
