MacVoices #15131: Philip Goward and Greg Scown of Smile Discuss TextExpander 5

Smile has released TextExpander 5, a new version of their Mac keyboard shortcut utility that boasts a number of useful updates. Philip Goward  and Greg Scown take us through the new capabilities that help you get more out of TextExpander by suggesting snippets for frequently used terms or phrases, reminding you to use snippets you have already created, and more. The iOS version,  TextExpander touch, has also been updated with the ability to sync not only in Dropbox, but also iCloud or any of the private cloud devices. Philip and Greg discuss security, function and staying current in the rapidly changing Apple ecosystem.
