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.

    July 10, 2014   |   By sherschbein_dotmac

    Pros

    Productive, stable, good value.

    Cons

    None from my POV.

    Summary

    Typinator is one of my "must have" utilities. I used it constantly all day to save typing and so I don't misspell.

    "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.
