The regular cost is US$34.95 for a single user license or $44.95 for a five-pack family license. A 30-day fully-functioning demo of TextExpander can be downloaded at the SmileOnMyMac web site. Upgrades to TextExpander 3.0.2 from earlier versions costs $15. Version 3.0.2 is a free update for registered users of version 3.0.
