About this app

Access a database of your commonly typed phrases with Android’s first “text expansion” app!

Whether you’re browsing the web or writing an email, you can access Textspansion by long-pressing your device’s search button to access your database. Clicking on the desired phrase will immediately copy it into your device’s clipboard and send you back to what you were working on. From there you can paste it where you like! Store anything you like into the app that you want to be accessible!

Future features:
- Encrypting the exported xml file
- Support for Ice Cream Sandwich
- Gesture recognition to open the app
- Opens a dialog on top of the app you were on previously

What's up with the name? Textspansion is a portmanteau of "text" and "expansion". It was originally inspired by TextExpander (by Smile Software, LLC.). Due to OS restrictions, we can't have our app actively detect keyboard input. The "short name" was inspired to be the text snippet that the app recognizes to expand.

Use daily on my Samsung Note 4 and now on galaxy tab S2 9.7. Always works and easy to use. Like another reviewer, I exported data list from my phone to my tablet via email and data automatically loaded; excellent undocumented feature. On galaxy tab S2 9.7 no menu 3 dots is available but holding the lit back icon button opens the menu and settings.
