TypeIt4Me Touch 3.0 is now available.

Phew, it’s hot out there. Six months have sped by in a blur since we opened the gate and shooed TypeIt4Me 5.4 for Mac out into the wild. Today, we’re pleased to say that its wee iOS cousin TypeIt4Me Touch 3.0 has finally been released and is available for download on the App Store.

In addition to bug fixes and iOS 8 optimisation, this update offers a keyboard extension you can easily switch to in order to access and expand your TypeIt4Me abbreviations in any app.

The primary intended use of the iOS app itself remains the speedy composition and sharing of notes. As for the TypeIt4Me Touch keyboard extension: this is not designed to replace your default keyboard, but to complement it. Apple’s built in shortcut functionality and superb QuickType algorithms offer excellent predictive and corrective features for swiftly and accurately typing short words, names and phrases, so we didn’t set out to reinvent the wheel.

Our aim with TypeIt4Me Touch 3.0 is to provide you with a useful keyboard add-on that you can quickly switch to for dipping into your library of lengthy, multi-line or even multi-paragraph TypeIt4Me abbreviations when you need them.

Addresses. Boilerplate texts. Blocks of programming code, markup or CSS. Literary quotes. Scientific formulae. All these and a whole lot more can be right at your fingertips, ready to be entered into any app you’re using with just a couple of keystrokes. Best of all, if you store TypeIt4Me snippets created on your Mac in iCloud, you’ll be able to manage and sync these across all your devices.

Time for us to get back to the lab for now. We hope you enjoy the summer and that TypeIt4Me Touch will free up a little more time for you to spend in a sun lounger sipping a pina colada.

TypeIt4Me 5.4.0 and 5.4.0i released today.

Happy Friday, one and all.

We hope your 2015 got off to a flying start and that the new year will continue to be a healthy, prosperous one for you and yours. We’ve good tidings to impart: as some of our hawk-eyed customers have already noticed, there is a Mac TypeIt4Me update afoot. Today we mark the release of TypeIt4Me 5.4.0 and 5.4.0i (Mac App Store version) into the wild.

This is a minor update for the time being to prepare the ground for a more substantial revamp we plan to release later this year in celebration of a major milestone in TypeIt4Me’s long-running development. It addresses some bugs and should stabilise performance. More importantly, it smoothes over a few wrinkles you may have encountered with regard to activating accessibility in the Security & Privacy system preferences after upgrading to Mavericks and / or Yosemite.

We have taken the opportunity to clear up some potential confusion by applying the same version number to both the shareware app available directly from us and its Mac App Store sibling. As before, both versions offer exactly the same feature set, with the sole exception being that the Mac App Store incarnation (as denoted by the appended ‘i’) also supports iCloud syncing of snippets across devices. We would of course love to be able to offer this in both versions, but iCloud support is only possible in apps sold on the Mac App Store, as per Apple’s policy.

That’s it for now, but do keep an eye out for further news from us in the near future; we’re cooking up some nice goodies we hope you’ll like. Thanks for your time :)
