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.

"Excellent Program With One Problem"

November 19, 2010  |  By rlhyde

 |  Version: Typinator 4.2


Typinator Is an excellent program. It is extremely useful once you get used to it. In fac,t I use it on a daily basis. However, as you can see from the word ?fact? above it has a problem.


I used Dragon speech to dictate this information. As anyone can see from the word ?fact? above, there is a compatibility issue between Dragon Speech and Typinator. Typinator interferes with Dragon Speech.


The program is easy to use, very small, and very fast. In most applications it's great. However, as indicated above, because it interferes with Dragon Speech I am constantly having to turn it off whenever I try to dictate. This is very annoying, and I can't imagine why the developers having such a difficult time fixing the problem.
