Season’s greetings! Good tidings we bring, to you and typing. We know you probably have a NYE Zoom party to log on to, but this will only take a minute. As we all prepare to put this torturously long year behind us and usher in 2021, we’re pleased to announce that a new TypeIt4Me version is available to download. Version 6.3 adds a handful of new features, fixes some bugs and has had a subtle makeover to match the new macOS 11 Big Sur aesthetic. It’s also a universal app that will run natively on both Intel Macs and the new M1 Apple silicon machines. Rosetta, begone! You can download TypeIt4Me 6.3 here.
Oh and one more thing.
Today is officially TypeIt4Me’s 30th birthday. At least, we’re fairly sure it is. We have a fuzzy memory of handing a 3.5” floppy disk containing the first official retail copy of TypeIt4Me 1.0 to a beaming, tank-topped machine code enthusiast at Riccardo’s amateur computer club in Brussels on New Year’s Eve, 1990. Pierre, if you’re out there, drop us a line!
Anyway, we won’t rehash the sentimental guff we came out with for TypeIt4Me’s quarter century milestone a while back. That said, it is remarkable that TypeIt4Me was originally conceived shortly before the Berlin Wall came down. 30 years later our little text expander that could has now endured for longer than the Iron Curtain divided East and West. Makes you think.
To celebrate TypeIt4Me’s 30th, we’re having a sale until January 30th. For 30 days, you can get 30% off TypeIt4Me user licences purchased from our site by entering the promotional code 30YEARS during checkout. Yay!
That’s all for now. Thanks once again for all your support, encouragement and constructive feedback over the decades. Here’s hoping 2021 proves to be a better year for everyone. Some of us will just be happy if we can still get hold of fresh fruit and vegetables – ideally without having to bribe a customs official to look the other way while we break into an impounded lorry in a Kent car park. That may sound like a low bar to clear, and yet…
I have been using TypeIt4Me (shortcut ty) for almost 30 years. Thank you for the most useful tool in my Mac toolbox. Wishing you even greater success in 2021. (Shortcut for my name is “kba” and my email is “emt”!!)
Thank you very much for sticking with us for all these years, Kaveh! Best wishes to you and yours for 2021.
Happy birthday and thanks for proving how old I am
Thank you! We’re only as old as we feel :)
Happy birthday and thank you for continuing to update and support this incredibly useful software! As long as I am here, the update checker in TIFM 6.2.2 tells me that I am running the latest version. 🤔
And happy New Year!
Thanks very much and happy new year, Gary 🥂 Sorry about the update trouble. We’re transitioning to a new domain and web host and that’s causing some issues with Sparkle, the in-app auto-update mechanism. We’re working to fix that, but in the meantime, you can update manually by downloading the installer then dragging the new app from the DMG to your Applications folder, overwriting version 6.2.2. Don’t worry about your snippets, they won’t be affected.
