Riccardo Ettore has announced the release of a public preview beta version of
TypeIt4Me X. It’s a new incarnation of the popular “Input Method Component,” now Carbonized to run natively on Mac OS X.
With TypeIt4Me X, you define a set of abbreviations and the terms they represent. TypeIt4Me then watches for those abbreviations and automatically expands them into the full text, saving you the keystrokes.
The developer explained that TypeIt4Me can come in handy when you have tricky technical definitions, your own name and address, a standard salutation, short words that are frequently misspelled, e-mail signatures, tags used in chat speech, or just about anything else that you type often.
TypeIt4Me X requires Mac OS X 10.1 or higher. The software is distributed at shareware and costs US$27 to register. Upgrades from the classic version are $9. Users who registered after June 1, 2001 can upgrade for free.
