So handy!

I've looked for this app since I moved to Android from my BlackBerry Tour back in 2008. Really. This app is prefect and saves me so much time. Thank you very much for this app. Short cuts for common phrases. Also ability to incorporate current time and/or current date into these phrases. Such a time saver and productively amplifier. SO HANDY!

A1....apart from having to allow permissions every time I reboot my Huawei MediaPad X2, which is quiet often....please fix then I'll go back to 5 stars

alessandro gaboardi


Your app is very cool but you need a way to hide some entries from the suggestion bubble, like sensitive data

Martin Bengt Lee

Very helpful!

It's everything I've been needing!


closing the app results in retraction of accessibility permission

Grant Gardner

Practically perfect

Christian Simpson

Crashes constantly since update. Refund please.

Unfortunately it only works 10% of the time in Inbox by Gmail now, used to work all the time * dev not responding to emails, review our tweets * Inserting text in Inbox removes inline images

Augustine Williams Bruce

Needs automatic data backup, them it'll be a great app.

saud Alguwaie

Almost perfect

Very handy app.. I was able to copy some emoji that aren't on SwiftKey and use it through this app. Suggestions box, however, needs to include more than 3 shortcuts. Sometimes I use phrases that start with the same key phrase and the suggestion box shows only last 3 shortcut I've used. I'll give it 5 stars once this problem is solved.

Great app but be careful when upgrading from Free version. Pro app installs but text added in Free version doesn't auto import. I uninstalled Free version and lost them all. My fault, I know. Be careful!

Sheila J

I used to love it ð???

EDIT: Since 12.31.15 update, only works sporadically. ORIG REVIEW: After Google's 6.15 update of their keyboard removed shortcuts and dictionary editing, I tried no less than a dozen other keyboards. This app replaces the need. Wish I could import all shortcuts. Need to make the app easier to find in Play store (took me 3 days to stumble upon it).

Adam Law

So Good I Paid

Awesome! EDIT is anyone having a problem where exporting your expansions to the Google keyboard dictionary isn't working?

Dexter Groenink

This app is amazing. I only wish that I had found it sooner!

Makes typing super easy & time saving.

Patrick stokes

New favourite app

I gave this a try for a week and now I love it I've created tons of short cuts for all sorts of things. I wouldn't be without it now

George Beasley

Fantastic Time Saver

Just paid for the Pro version after using the free version for a couple of weeks. Totally worth it. Once you get it set up, it waits in the background for you to type an available sequence. Completely unobtrusive.

Carlo De la Rama

Please allow 1 letter shortcut. I usually type R on Google keyboard and it auto completes it to ARE. Unfortunately Textpand doesnt let you do that which sucks as I want to use it on swiftkey

S.K James

Bought it!

Never thought this would've been that useful! Just can't live without this, now.

Very good but every time I reboot, I have to go to accessibility settings again and give permission. Please fix it and I will give 5 Stars.
