    SO much better than PhraseExpress!

    This setup is a little more hands on to install and setup, but it is worth it. No weird glitches, crashing or other issues, it just a simple system works as it should.

    It doesn't have all the same features as PhraseExpress, but if you are like me and just want a text expander, they are features you will never need or use anyway.

    The setup instructions are clear and concise. They do take a minute to get your head around compared to other software installs that I am used to, but as the instructions are on point, it is not difficult.

    I am using this on macOS and will be trying it on Windows soon too.

    🏁 Competitors: PhraseExpress
    👍 Pros:    Works perfectly|Cost effective|Great, clear setup instructions
    👎 Cons:    Requries some more setup beyond the usual 'double click' and done
