The TextExpander Keyboard Preview and Beta

The day I have waited for since the iPhone was originally released is almost upon us…full TextExpander support is coming to any App on the iPhone or iPad, including built-in apps like Mail and Safari.

Smile has worked diligently to bring TextExpander to iOS but due to sandboxing restrictions, previously only apps which implemented the TextExpander touch SDK could expand snippets in-app. Thanks to iOS 8 and support for custom keyboards, that’s all about to change.

Smile has a video preview on their blog as well as an invitation for folks to join the public beta. TextExpander touch 3 shipping this fall. For more details, see the TextExpander touch home page.

Philip, Greg, everyone…thank you.
