Typinator for Mac makes it easier to switch from TextExpander
Ergonis Software have released the latest version of their text expansion software, Typinator, making it easier for those using TextExpander to switch over, while also adding new features both current and news users will enjoy. The app can now import from TextExpander's "textexpandersettings" format to bring your snippets into Typinator with minimal effort.
Ergonis is also offering a 25% discount to those that purchase Typinator in April 2016 if they use the code TE1604P at checkout. That brings down the price to about $18.75 for new customers. Additionally, all Typinator purchases made from this point forward will be eligible for a free upgrade to Typinator 7 when it launches later this year.
You can grab Typinator now directly from Ergonis Software.

Nice to see the competition to Smile making them pay for their bone headed greed. Sent from the iMore App
+1. Karma is a great thing
The folks at SmileOnMyMac, LLC have every right to try and make a reasonable profit from their efforts, and I am always willing to support a great product. But I think they overstepped this time. And, from the reviews I found online, Typinator will accomplish much the same thing, and for under $20 US. Thanks iMore for the discount code.
I want to point out that the pricing is actually in Euros, so after you convert, you're looking at about $21 and change in US dollars. Still a reasonable price, especially since all purchases come with the free upgrade when Typinator 7 is released. I just bought this and quickly and easily copied over my TextExpander shortcuts. So long, Smile.
Like many others, I'm not happy with Smile's business practices and am looking to switch as soon as possible. Smile forget that some users (like myself) are casual, non-professional users. Nevertheless, Typinator (following your link) is actually €24.99 PLUS VAT, which we have to pay in the EU - that makes it $33.90 or $25.42 after the discount.
I used Typinator for many years, but their upgrade policy is terrible. They expect you to pay big bucks for minor features.
And TextExpander now expects you to pay a subscription fee. I think Typinator's offer is far better
