I love it when tools I use every day want to sponsor MacSparky.com. A case in point is this week’s sponsor, TextExpander. I use that application every day. I am currently working on a complicated transaction where we have a pile of exhibits, all with absolutely crazy names. So I made quick TextExpander snippet to rename the files. It inserts the date, puts in a transaction code, and even moves the curser to exactly the right place for me to type in a brief description. It took me about a minute to make the snippet and it saved me at least an hour. Just another day with TextExpander.
TextExpander makes you more productive. With the ability to add tokens for dates, get fill-ins from the user, and even run AppleScript, it is way more powerful than you’d think. With TextExpander you’ll see your snippets everywhere. It syncs between your Mac, iPhone, iPad, and Windows PC instantly.
They’ve got free snippet groups for all sorts of folks including job recruiters, freelancers, airport codes, brand names, and more at the TextExpander website (or you can download some of mine).
TextExpander even lets you run AppleScripts. For example, I use TextExpander to auto address emails with Apple Mail.
Best of all, with TextExpander you don’t have to work alone: TextExpander for Teams lets you manage and share snippets with your coworkers or the entire company. Use this link to get 20% off.
