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):
Do you forget your abbreviations? Or are they triggered when you don’t want them?
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.
Use hotkeys and abbreviations to pull up your favorite 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.
Launch your favorite applications, websites, and perform web searches
As in Autohotkey, you can use PhraseExpander to launch applications and websites. You can also use it to query websites like dictionaries, google, Wikipedia, and more
Create templates and fill them with point and click
Create templates that can be easily customized using Fill-in-the-blanks templates and design forms that assist you in repetitive data entry.
