TextExpander 4 is $34.95. Registered users of TextExpander 3 can get the upgrade for $15, or free if purchased after January 15, 2012.

Because of Apple's new "sandboxing" requirements, TextExpander 4 is not available via the Mac App Store. Please download TextExpander 4 from the Smile site. When you launch the new version, you'll be able to upgrade directly via Smile.
