SmileOnMyMac, has updated their popular iPhone and iPad app, TextExpander, with Dropbox support. TextExpander allows you to create abbreviations for frequently used chunks of text. Many other apps, such as Twitter apps and notes and to-do apps, support TextExpander so that it's able to be used natively in those apps.
Details and screenshots after the break.
With TextExpander touch, you create a library of abbreviation shortcuts for snippets of text that you use frequently, such as addresses, URLs, and standard replies. Tap that abbreviation, and it automatically expands to the full snippet. (You can even insert today's date automatically with the default abbreviation "ddate"!)
You can use your TextExpander touch snippets directly in over 100 apps that support it, including Twittelator, TwitBird Pro, Elements, Simplenote, WriteRoom, Circus Ponies NoteBook, DEVONthink To Go, BusyToDo, Things, and Zendesk. See www.smilesoftware.com/applist for a complete list.
