Hi guys! Do you know any good app on the Mac App Store that I can use for creating snippets. Tried Quick Key and aText....delete both as they are not working properly.

aText says the MAS version doesn't work anymore, so maybe try the version from their website?

I use Typinator, and it looks like aText from the photos. It does in-place replacement based on the keyword you chose.

What do you mean by snippets? These types of apps rely on typing a few characters and then getting a replacement for what you really wanted.

Not sure if it's on MAS, but I use Keyboard Maestro.
Thanks! I'll check it!

I've bought aText on the MAS, so strange that they can't fix MAS version:( Anyway I'll check their web site too.

Yep I mean replacing characters with text. It works great when I need to send a bunch of personal emails with the same text in the main part of email.

Thanks for recommending Typinator, I'll check it too!
