TextExpander adds Dropbox sync, TweetBot support


SmileOnMyMac has released an update to TextExpander, its text replacement utility for iOS adding support for syncing TextExpander snippets via Dropbox and posting to Twitter via TapBots’ TweetBot app. TextExpander allows users to save short text abbreviations that can be automatically expanded into larger sentences or even entire paragraphs. Numerous third-party iOS applications integrate with TextExpander directly or users can simply copy and paste snippets from within the app. In addition to local Wi-Fi syncing, TextExpander 1.2 can now sync content with TextExpander on other iOS devices and the Mac via Dropbox, a feature that has already been available in the Mac version for some time. The update also adds new options for sorting snippets, displaying snippet labels, and support TweetBot as a Twitter client in the application’s settings. Several other minor fixes and improvements have also been made in the latest version. TextExpander 1.2 is a universal app requiring iOS 4.0 or later and is available from the App Store for $5.
