Shortcut Keyboard is your new Keyboard!
The app creates you a new keyboard. This keyboard is made for you with your personal shortcuts. Insert the shortcut’s text to save a lot of time. Additionally, once you have created a shortcut, the text will not change so you can be sure that you do not insert wrong information. One more benefit is that you are not bugged by typing the same letters over and over again.
Shortcut Keyboard has a lot of functions, including:

- Create new shortcuts with ease and insert the shortcut’s text with a single finger press
- Create new pages and position your shortcuts wherever you want on the keyboard
- Your texts are variable!
- Static texts are inserted without any changes
- It is possible to replace a date variable with the current date and time
- Another feature allows you to insert your current location
- Import and export your shortcuts so they can be used as a backup and to keep your other devices updated

Create shortcuts to fill out forms with just a few finger presses. Until now, you did not know how fast you can insert your name, address, email​ and phone number.
Send your friends your current location and let them know where the party is at or text your parents that you safely made it to your current location.
You can mark your finished tasks with the current date and even insert the current time quickly.
Shortcuts can be used in all kinds of situations. They are especially useful for texts you often use and are also handy for hashtags, websites, signatures and I bet you already have your individual use in your mind.

How do I use Shortcut Keyboard?

The app shows a keyboard. This represents the actual keyboard you will be using.
Create a new shortcut by simply clicking on the +. Enter the text you want to be inserted and a text that will be shown on the keyboard.
Moving shortcuts is just as easy. Click on the icon in the top right of your screen. A blue border will appear. Click two shortcuts to change places.
Do not forget to add Shortcut to your keyboards. Settings -> General -> Keyboard -> Keyboards -> Add Keyboard. You will see Shortcut Keyboard. Add it to your keyboards. Now you can use the globe on Apple's keyboard to change your active keyboard to Shortcut Keyboard.
On the keyboard, click a shortcut to insert the text. You can also long press a shortcut to see the text that can be inserted.

Finally, easy, flexible date and timestamps!

We type everything into our phone, and should expect to be able to record our current time and location, but until Shortcut I could not except by manually doing it, which involves some guesswork. Now I can title my journal entries with the exact date and time in a format that will sort correctly alphabetically! And I can test someone where I am using it’s location feature. And I keep several salutations and signatures. More convenient than I expected and affordable.

Just great! Deserves more attention.

It’s easy to over complicate the simplest app, obscuring the functionality. IMO, this is the perfect example of how not to do that. Perfect balance of function, form and, intuitive UI. Just found out you can basically use dictionaries for multiple variable insertion. Awesome! This has reduced the time of countless tasks and made my life significantly better. Thank you verily and nice coding!

Great App!!

I’m a writer, and I needed an app that would allow me to date/timestamp different versions of articles. I also needed to be able to set the date/time format to match my current database of existing files. This app fit my needs perfectly, and it’s intuitive to use. Would give it 6 stars.
