I already paid for the premium and had been using it for months just fine. It has just stopped working because of accessibility issues. I enabled everything and even sent an email with no response. As a last ditch effort, I backed up my files and uninstalled the app and re-installed and now it is limiting me to only 10 phrases again and there is no option to login, only to repurchase the premium. I am furious because this is interfering with my business! Help!

OMG: Texpand saves me quite a bit of time every day with entering repetitive text: grocery lists, multiple email signatures, annoying punctuation and symbols (e.g., etc., ∆, ⋮ , ...), auto-entering dates in multiple formats, words I usually misspell. It will even enter a phrase or set of symbols with the cursor set exactly where you want it. It is well designed, with a shallow learning curve, and easy-to-use functionality. One of my favorite productivity apps.

I've been searching for a new text shortcut system for a few days and wow... this one really checks all my boxes. Allows sorting based on a number of different criteria as opposed to attempting to "Alphabetize" emojis and symbols. Has a wealth of options for productive usage and even things I didn't dare to dream if you upgrade, which I think I likely will. Definitely the most open ended text expander I've seen; if you're not satisfied with just gboard then you've come to the right place.
