What can you do better with PhraseExpander?
PhraseExpander has been designed to expand text and for application launching and it’s a more user-friendly solution than Autohotkey to perform the following tasks (no need to learn a new programming language):
Autocomplete phrases as you type (similar to Microsoft Word Autotext)
Our SmartComplete text autocomplete technology autocompletes words and phrases as you type. As you start typing, suggestions are displayed after the first two characters and, as you continue typing characters, the displayed list is narrowed down. This makes it faster to insert long or difficult to remember words and phrases.

Insert your phrases in different ways, according to what better suits you in your specific situation: type an abbreviation, a key combination or select your favorite phrase from a pop-up list.
