PhraseExpress Portable

Editors' Review

by   / September 02, 2014

PhraseExpress USB Edition provides a toolset not readily available to many Windows PC users. Giving you the tools to create macros and automate various text-based tasks on your PC, you can create hot keys, shortened keystrokes, and editing macros that will make your life easier, all while storing the tool on a portable USB for use on multiple computers.

Pros

Accessible and straightforward: The standard interface for PhraseExpress is very accessible, running from your PC's tray and providing numerous options that make for an efficient toolset. Combined with the USB portability of this version, the tool is more versatile than ever before, a perfect fit for anyone who travels frequently or doesn't bring their own device to work.

Preset macros and suggestions: There are a number of macros and hot key setups already included with the app, allowing you to see what options are available, as well as how to start optimizing and adjusting them to fit your needs. From automated email creation tools to keyboard and mouse layout switching tools, there are a lot of presets here.

Cons

Difficult to master: If you've never used a text expander or macro-building tool before, PhraseExpress can be overwhelming at first glance. Even for some seasoned PC users, the learning curve can be steep, but once you master the intricacies of the app you'll be able to create dynamic macros that greatly increase your efficiency.

Bottom Line

PhraseExpress USB Edition offers the same incredibly effective macro generation tools in a compact, portable package. Whether you edit long documents daily or want to streamline frequently completed tasks on your PC, there are a lot of options here to make the process easier.
