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


    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.


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


    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.

    Version: Typinator 6.1


    makes life so much easier
    lots of mistypes are automatically corrected


    never had an issue


    One of my must-have utilities, use it constantly. I used to have another spelling correction software, but it never worked out all that well. Typinator is outstanding!
