SnippetKeys is a keyboard extension designed to save your time. It expands iPhone or iPad keyboard with custom text snippets.
Snippet is a piece of text or a phrase that you type often. These can be email addresses, signatures, billing info, message replies, business emails and canned responses, favorite emojis, current date/time, locations and directions or any other texts you use frequently.
Your snippet is a button on SnippetKeys keyboard now. One key for one snippet, one key to instantly type one complete phrase. In SnippetKeys configuration application you can create as many keys as you want, organize them by pages and drag-and-drop to arrange.
The keyboard extension contains all added snippets and is accessible in all applications just like the standard keyboard. To use the keyboard extension you need to enable it first:
1. Open Settings > General > Keyboard > Keyboards
2. Select “Add New Keyboard”
3. Locate and select SnippetKeys
SnippetKeys is a utility keyboard and it doesn’t replace the standard one. You can use the standard keyboard for normal typing and quickly swap to SnippetKeys to insert canned phrases with one tap.
We never transmit your snippets data or whatever you type off your device. All data is stored locally and will not leave your phone. Also, SnippetKeys keyboard extension does not require full access. It means everything you type is secured by iOS as well.

Ratings and Reviews
Great KISS Productivity Utility
Good Interface, just right amount of complexity; however, even after paying for the premium version, I find the snippet key rearrangement doesn't work. Well, when in doubt---reboot. That worked I guess since I got the feature to work finally. Tried several competitors' products in between time and think this is the best of the lot for the price. Great little utility faithful to the KISS principle.
Just what Ｉ was looking for
Ｉ use it primarily for increasing my typing where there is ａ character limit by using Unicodes like ﬀ ﬄ ﬂ ﬃ ﬁ ǌ ĳ ѹ Ⅱ ⁇ ⅳ ⅵ Ы ㏌ ǳ etc, multiple letters one key stroke one Unicode character, longer comments on Tiktok and many other places.
Quick and easy
Does just what I want in a concise and competent manner. Nicely done.
