TextExpander Snippet Expansion Comes to Every App in iOS 8

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.
