TextExpander Snippet Expansion Comes to Every App in iOS 8

Posted 08/25/2014 by Maia

We've been hard at work since Apple announced the new and exciting extensions and custom keyboards available in iOS 8.

TextExpander touch 3, coming on the heels of iOS 8 this fall, includes a TextExpander keyboard which can expand snippets in any app on the iPhone or iPad, including built-in apps such as Mail and Safari.

Here’s a sample of the TextExpander keyboard in action:

Prior to iOS 8, only apps which implemented the TextExpander touch SDK could expand snippets directly.

Under iOS 8, the TextExpander keyboard will work system-wide and reliably share snippets with the TextExpander app. The keyboard will also include full VoiceOver accessibility support. 

Join Our Public Beta

This week, we will begin a public beta of TextExpander with the custom keyboard. If you are interested in helping us beta test, please follow our @SmileTEBeta twitter account. We may not be able to accommodate everyone who wants to beta test, and we may accept requests on a rolling basis. Either way you can look forward to TextExpander touch 3 shipping this fall.
