Text Expander Releases Version 2.1

text expander.png

Text Expander is one of my favorite applications. I use text snippets for everything from email to legal briefs to applescript code. If you do any sort of repetitive text entry, you owe it to yourself to give Text Expander a try.

The new version 2.1 includes several improvements. According to the developer version 2.1 adds the following:

– Allows single character abbreviations
– Improves performance and reliability for fast typists
– Remembers open groups in Preference pane
– Preserves format when creating snippets from selection or Clipboard
– Fixes problem expanding when there are multiple nested snippets
– Minor fixes and improvements

I’m most interested in increased reliability for fast typists. Occasionally, Text Expander stumbles when I type too fast which can be frustrating. I’m interested in what the users are using Text Expander or any of the other text snippet applications for. Sound off in the comments.

    I like MenuCalendarClock (http://is.gd/91s) which has modules for iCal and entourage. In addition to giving you lot of flexibility in how to display today’s date in the top, bar, thingy (goodbye little brain cell, I will miss you).

    It will also show you today’s, and even the next several days, events and todos.

    You can even check off todos. Plus you get a month at a glance calendar with dates having events shaded.

    A lot of programs do one or more of these things, but this is the first one I have found that does it all in one nice package.
    The only downside it puts an icon in the dock, which is unnecessary.

    Also it is part of the current MacUpate promo so you can get it an a bunch of other programs on the cheap. Woot! (can you still say “woot” when you’re over 35? Oh well)
