Release Date: August 25, 2009

2010 Macworld Utility of the Year. Type faster on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch using short abbreviations that expand into long snippets.

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"!) New: Sync your snippets with Dropbox!

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 for a complete list.

Given the current feature set of the iOS, TextExpander touch cannot work in the background (as it does in Mac OS X), expanding text snippets while you work in another app, unless that app supports TextExpander touch.

Compose new email messages in TextExpander touch, using your snippet library of boilerplate paragraphs, email addresses, URLs and signatures. Automatically insert the message into an email in Mail or copy it for use in other apps.

If you use TextExpander on the Mac, you can also share the snippet groups with iOS devices over your local network.

"If you do a lot of writing and communication on your iPhone, TextExpander is practically required for efficiency." – iPhone AppStorm

- Compose notes quickly and easily that contain frequently-used text, addresses, phone numbers, email signatures, URLs, etc.

Release Date: July 24, 2011

MacWorld Editors Choice 5★ rating
US AppStore Staff Favorite

My Measures and Dimension PRO is a powerful application for storing and sharing object dimensions for iPhone and iPad!

Apple staff favorite in many countries!
Top in Productivity category!

Absolutely outstanding ★★★★★(by Robert E.)
I use your app for my estimating and fabrication jobs. This is a great program, I cannot begin to tell you how useful this is for my line of work. A lot of people take pictures to reference to. But this program let's you add the dimensions in the pictures. It would be great if you were able to add notes as well. This program changes my iPod touch from a toy to a very useful tool

Love this app ★★★★★ (by chimbleysweep)
My wife and I recently bought a house, and I can't tell you just how useful this app is.

Perfect :) ★★★★★ (by lengbrecht)
I'm a contractor, and can't tell you how many times I needed this app… Thanks so much, well worth the price.

A must have tool for all real estate agents, engineers, carpenters, architects, auction sellers, construction workers…

All you have to do is take a photo of an object you wish to store dimensions of. Then you add dimensions: arrows, angels and text. Now your measures are stored and you can see and share them anytime anywhere.

✓ store dimensions on a photo
✓ add arrows, angles and text
✓ organize photos/files in folders
✓ easy multiple folder and file sharing
✓ fractions are supported in "inch" unit
✓ export photo with dimension to photo library
✓ send photo with dimensions via email
✓ supported portrait and landscape orientation
✓ backup, restore or migrate entire library
✓ metric and imperial units: meters, centimeters, millimeters, inches, feet and yards and fractions!

**Tip: To use fractions in your dimension you have to choose inch unit. Example one: 2 1/4" Press number two then press decimal separator (dot), press number one and press fraction separator / (slash – same button where dot was) and then press number four. If you don't need leading inches just begin with zero instead of number two.
