TextExpander 2.0 Released With New Features for Organizing, Sharing and
Syncing Snippets

San Francisco, CA — October 16, 2007 — SmileOnMyMac has released
TextExpander 2.0, a new version of its customizable typing shortcut tool
for Mac OS X. With TextExpander, users can define abbreviations for
frequently-used text strings and images, also known as snippets. When an
abbreviation is typed, it expands automatically to the full snippet. The
new version of TextExpander incorporates many features for organizing,
sharing and syncing snippets.

A 30-day fully-functioning demo of TextExpander can be downloaded at
http://www.smileonmymac.com/textexpander/download.html. The price is
$29.95. A new Family Pack license is available for $44.95, which covers up
to five computers in one household. Mac OS X 10.4 is required.

In TextExpander 2.0, users can organize snippets into groups. Preferences
can be set by group; each group can be enabled or disabled in specified
applications and can have its own alert sound.

Sharing snippet files is easy with TextExpander 2.0. The new version
supports multiple snippet groups from external and even online files. These
groups can be set to update any changes made to such files at regular
intervals. For those who use snippets on multiple computers, TextExpander
2.0 offers synchronization via .Mac.

Adding new snippets has been simplified in TextExpander 2.0. Snippets can
be automatically generated from a selection or from the Clipboard via
user-customized hotkeys.

“TextExpander users are very passionate about the program,” said Greg
Scown, co-founder of SmileOnMyMac. “When we asked them what they wanted to
see in the new version, we got an incredible response, with lots of good
ideas for new features. We’ve done our best to incorporate most of them in
TextExpander 2.0.”
