Typinator will automatically type text and automatically correct typos on the fly. It works across all Mac OS X applications. It detects specific sequences of characters you type and automatically replaces them with text “snippets,” graphics, URLs, dates and special characters.
The 3.0 version now operates as a background process — it’s “dockless,” so it now operates unobtrusively without any user intervention. A menu bar icon gives you full access to Typinator’s main window interface. A new search feature has been added that lets you instantly view snippets that contain your search query. Other improvements have also been made.
Typinator 3.0 requires Mac OS X v10.4 or later.
