With one modification this will be a 5 star app

I’ve been using text expander for years. While I’m not thrilled about the monthly access fees, it’s not expensive so I find it worth the monthly charge. The ONLY thing I’m not thrilled about on the mobile app version is the inability for it to insert images into the snippets as well as the text. On the full laptop version for example, I have a details list of directions to my office, complete with pictures of every landmark. When I insert the snippet via phone or iPad it doesn’t transfer the graphics, only the text. When I insert the snippit on my signature card on my laptop it inserts the graphic with my company branding. On the mobile app version it doesn’t. I’m sure there’s a technical reason for it, but it today’s tech age, I’m sure there’s a technical solution to it as well. Once that happens, this mobile app will get 5 stars from me.

It doesn’t work.

IOS 13. This app on iPhone won’t let the keyboard close (?) so you can’t read the introduction or perform any other action. The modal window won’t dismiss and there’s no [x] provided. So I tried it on the iPad. I was able to close the keyboard but once again the modal window would not dismiss and no [x] provided. The only available option was “sign in” and I couldn’t, since that requires an account, one of the many things I couldn’t get to because the modal window wouldn’t dismiss. There’s also colored text in the intro screen that looked like links, but either were not, or were also non-functional. I would wait until they update this app for iOS 13. At time of writing this app was last updated 1m ago.

Awesome Desktop Experience, Not the Case on iOS

I’m a long time user of TextExpander. I have it on all my devices but I rarely use it on my iOS devices. For the iPhone my complaint is the keyboard. The buttons are either too small or too close together and I spend more time correcting errors. On the iPad I use a Bluetooth keyboard so using TextExpander is not an option. I hope these issues are being addressed in the future.
