Rocket Typist

The text expander that deserves to run on a Mac

Rocket Typist is a modern Mac application, created with simplicity in mind. Once you have collected your snippets of addresses, signatures, or any other commonly repeated phrases, you will never have to type them again.

In a regular day, most of us type the same text over and over again, wasting an enormous amount of time in the process. Why not let your computer do some of that work for you? That's where Rocket Typist comes in.

I love this type of functionality. Use it all the time on both iOS and macOS.

How does Rocket Typist compare to the built-in text snippets on Apple's operating systems and existing third-party software such as TextExpander?

I personally use a combination of both. The native snippets for simple things like email addresses that I might need everywhere, and TextExpander for more advanced stuff on the Mac.

Is the one-time fee versus TextExpander's new subscription model the most important difference or are the other differences too we should be aware of?
@marckohlbrugge Hi Marc,

Apple's build in text expansion is very basic and misses features like macros to make a snippet more dynamic.

Similar software for the Mac is often too expensive and thus not a good deal for people who only have a few snippets that they just need every now and then. Also I personally don’t like the subscription model, at least not for just one app. So why would I want to do it as a developer? You will only have to pay for Rocket Typist once.

But most important of all, all the apps I’ve tried did not really feel like a Mac app, especially when it comes to macros. With Rocket Typist you will never have to type or read cryptic macro syntax, which is great because now even my mum can work with it. 😃

Rocket Typist will be also be available on the Mac App Store and I already have ideas for macros that you don’t find anywhere else. These will be added over time with future updates.

Cheers
Daniel
