New TextExpander—1st Anniversary

Happy Anniversary

Today we celebrate the one year anniversary of the new TextExpander.

One year ago today, April 5, 2016, we launched the new TextExpander with a shiny new app icon, new pricing model, a Windows app, a web app, and support for teams through robust sharing.

We want to thank all the customers who’ve joined us on this journey.

Here’s a wrap-up of some of what we’ve found and done along the way.

Customer achievements:

  • TextExpander customers save tens of thousands of hours every month
  • Over ⅓ of our customer base is on the new TextExpander
  • The average team on TextExpander has 12 users, each of whom gains an average of 4 hours of productivity per month, and many active users gain twice that—an entire 8 hour work day saved per month
  • Simple time savings falls short of expressing the gains in accuracy and consistency throughout a workday that so many customers experience


Creating our own backend for snippet storage has allowed us the flexibility to do some really neat things.

  • Individuals can share snippets peer-to-peer via an email address
  • Teams have more advanced sharing options and controls
  • All customers can discover and share groups with the community through Public Groups, or through a privately shared URL

New Features:

In the 12 months since the April 2016 launch with its subscription pricing, we’ve released 17 updates to TextExpander for Mac, compared with 7 updates the previous year. A few of those updates include:
