Typing on small devices is hard. Fortunately, starting in iOS 8, Apple enables you to install custom keyboards that are available system-wide to help solve unique text entry problems.

SnipsKey is a simple, but powerful, snippet manager and keyboard extension for iOS. Create and manage snippets of text in SnipsKey, then enter them with a single tap from any app or webpage using SnipsKey's custom keyboard.

What makes a good snippet? Anything you type over and over again.

Website Forms:
* Mailing Addresses
* Email Addresses and Logins
* Phone Numbers

Short Message Replies:
* I'm on my way
* Where are you?
* Who dis?
* Emoji or ASCII Artwork

Business Emails and Canned Responses:

* Driving Directions
* Weekly Status Reports
* Manage Multiple Email Signatures

Other Repetitive or Hard to Type Text:
* Links to Websites
* Special Symbols, like © and ™

SnipsKey is free for use with up to fifty snippets. We designed that limit to completely meet the needs of most users, while providing a professional level service for power users. Pro-level features, including unlimited snippets, snippet groups and text expander import are available as an in-app purchase.

Just what I needed - invaluable

I've been waiting for this keyboard since my first iPhone. I often respond to emails with the same basic content and this app makes it extremely easy to do so without having to remember abbreviations for your stored content (ala textexpander, Apple's built-in shortcuts). With this app I just pick the content from the list and, boom, done!

Exactly what I needed!

Why does the description say it's free when it costs a dollar?

Oh well. Money well spent. Keyboard shortcuts are great but they have limitations. They don't allow paragraphs, returns, or any other formatting. After searching for months and trying out a few "clipboard managers" I finally stumbled on this gem. It is perfect!

Great for support emails

This app is great for letting me respond to customer emails from my iPhone using standard responses to common questions. I do this on my Mac with Text Expander but haven't been able to use those snippets on my iPhone previously.
