Editors' review

Autotyping and autocorrecting applications can be a huge time-saver, sparing you from having to retype frequently used words and phrases (and even paragraphs and pictures), and they can instantly clean up your most common typos. Plus, if they work system-wide like Typinator does, they can provide you with functionality that might otherwise be limited to your word processor.

Typinator is a best-in-class example of this kind of app, with an easy-to-manage interface, above-average stability, exceptional speed (keeping up with even extremely fast typists using large abbreviation sets, even those whose keystrokes can overlap), and the ability to handle multiple languages (with autocorrection for English, French, and German). You can also search through your "snippets" with a Spotlight-style QuickSearch, which makes large snippet files more feasible. Typinator supports iDisk and Dropbox syncing, and recent updates have improved support for other apps, including Kindle for Mac, Outlook 2011, iTunes 10, and even Gmail in Firefox. Built-in HTML snippets, autocorrection sets, and frequent upgrades make Typinator an even more attractive option.

    "Must-have app for being quick and efficient with text"

    August 19, 2014   |   By bmscmoreira

    Version: Typinator 6.1

    Pros

    Fast and efficient;
    Price vs Value; great upgrade and educational discounts;
    Well documented;
    User support;
    Clean and simple UI;
    Great for both power and regular users.

    Cons

    Full potential requires you to learn a lot (REGEX, etc...);
    Portuguese auto-correction would be a great add on;

    Summary

    Typinator has been since v.4 one of my productivity gems, and I only miss not have knowing it before that. If you work in several fields of knowledge, if you write repetitive things, if you are always searching for the quickest and more efficient way of doing things, this one is for you. It can go from simple text expansion from abbreviations to REGEX and interactive external scripts.
    It's good to see when a company delivers such a great product with constant improvements and great user support.

    "Corrects my bad spelling"

    June 21, 2014   |   By terryzx

    Version: Typinator 6.0

    Pros

    I used to use other spelling correction software but it never worked out all that well. It was never upgraded or had constant conflicts with my main programs. Then I discovered Typinator and it has not failed me yet and I could could not be more please at how easy it is to use and to add my own library of words to it. This is well worth the cost for the ease of knowing my spelling will be right for all I do.

    Cons

    Honestly can't think of any 'con' for this program. I'm dry happy with it.

    Summary

    GREAT Program an I would have a really hard time if I no longer had it to use. Kudos to the developers as it is a really great Mac product!

    "Ture life/time saver!"

    June 19, 2014   |   By ranklord

    Version: Typinator 6.0

    Pros

    Amazing app and real life/time saver! Can't work without it anymore :) Due to extensive daily work have to type a lot and therefore it really helps. Many repeating phrases are typed in seconds! Lots of mistypes are automatically corrected - I do not even notice it :)

    Samples of what I have:
    tka - Thank you in advance for your kind attention!
    cp - My cell phone number :)
    copyrights, greetings etc!
    It works regardless of language that you use!

    And version 6 brought me even more happiness with introduction of DOuble CAps correction!!! This feature I've been looking for a years literally!!! I type fast and very often do not undress shift in time resulting in DC :) Now I have a relief for this! This is amazing and thanks you, folks for this!!!

    Syncing sets through Dropbox is also amazing - I have two Macs (office/home) and if I enter anything new on one, I get same on my other mac.

    This is one of the rare apps that do cost its money and I never regret about this purchase for a second!

    Cons

    Can't see any.

    Summary

    Do recommend!

    "An essential tool"

    June 18, 2014   |   By pablitosan

    Version: Typinator 6.0

    Pros

    Easy interface, works in almost every situation. Brilliant design, though as with all such applications there is a learning period.

    Cons

    None to speak of.

    Summary

    I would rather die than do without Typinator.

    "A "must have" for arthritic hands"

    June 18, 2014   |   By DunsmuirWill

    Version: Typinator 6.0

    Pros

    Ease of use. Ability to expand almost anything my arthritic hands would mess up.

    I don't have to worry about mistyping important information like email addresses, login/password combos, or similar items.

    Typinator auto-corrects my common typos.

    The "Pairs" set of auto-corrections ensures I won't forget the second quotation mark, parenthesis, brackets, and more.

    Almost unlimited in its usefulness.

    Can expand pictures like scanned signatures.

    Cons

    Other than wishing I could have Typinator for my iPad (and have OS7 use it!), I can't think of anything.

    Summary

    Great software. Typinator is one of my two "must have" productivity tools.

    "The best productivity booster I found so far"

    January 19, 2014   |   By pitzal

    Version: Typinator 5.8

    Pros

    - easy to use
    - versatile
    - works with ease in ALL software
    - regularly updated for free
    - new features at no cost, e.g. search bar for all expansions sets

    Cons

    - none to my knowledge

    Summary

    Typinator is simply the best enhancement for my workflow I have found in years. Typinator gets updated regularly for free, with great new features are being added, e.g. recently a search bar for all extension sets. Highly recommended.

    "Killer app, a must have"

    September 03, 2013   |   By David_Lemor

    Version: Typinator 5.6

    Pros

    Must have
    Efficient
    Fast
    Handle graphics as well as all imaginable character
    Customer service when you have a question
    Stable

    Cons

    None that i've found

    Summary

    It does what it says, and i am surprised to see how much i use it. The more you use it, the more you want to add some shortcut to avoid type again and again the same word, emails, signatures. I love the autocorrect, really helps my fast and furious messy typing

    "I Used to Love This"

    November 15, 2012   |   By Cheryl_Hanna

    Version: Typinator 5.3

    Pros

    Fast
    User friendly
    Increases productivity

    Cons

    Persistent bug makes v. 5 unusable on my Mac

    Summary

    I used to love this. Used all day long. Then, a couple of months ago, something went wrong and about half the time the text expansion was the last thing copied, instead of what it should be. I ungraded from v. 4 hoping to resolve it, but the problem persisted. Support was very responsive, but we were unable to fix it. I downloaded the newest version today, but not only is my problem not resolved, it's even worse. So I'm reluctantly saying goodbye to Typinator (and my money) and moving on to another utility. I'm running a PowerPC with Leopard, so if this is your configuration, I recommend you avoid spending money on Typinator. (The demo for v.5 ran fine by the way, problems only showed up later.)

    Updated on Nov 16, 2012

    Eureka! The very day after I post this review, I finally discover the problem. PHP Pasteboard and Typinator are incompatible and you can't use them together.

    I wish CNET would let me revise my review and give Typinator back two stars!
