Bad Taste

about PhraseExpress ·

I tried out this software several years ago. It worked fine and it was very helpful. Then, with no warning i got a notice that I was using it for commercial purposes and that it was being disabled. I wasn't! Made me very upset. I suppose they have some algorithm they use. But, they could have at least asked! So, I wouldn't use it for free or pay for it or say anything good about it now. Bad marketing strategy.


MacOS resource problems

about PhraseExpress ·

This works well on macOS, except that it seems to use a lot of CPU, RAM, and energy; makes a noticeable impact on battery life if left running.


Every doctor should use Phrase Express 3 Helpful

about PhraseExpress ·

I have been using Phrase Express for 3 years now in my medical practice.
Very efficient for prescriptions, instructions sheets, and many other computer tasks.
USB version is very useful.
The author is always improving it.
The PRO version is a must.

I use this all the time in my medical practice. It is a huge time saver.
I am using the paid for version. I have my staff using it now too after having written some phrases for them. It is increasing their productivity a great deal.

A must have for my medical practice 3 Helpful

about PhraseExpress ·

I have been using Phrase Express for more than two years and this superb tool has improved my medical practice. I use it for prescription, medical information to patients, form filling, answering my emails and a lot more. It is convenient, very powerful and easy to learn. Floating menus, MS Word conversion and an incredible amount of possibilities hide inside this little jewel. Also the help is always there. The manual is excellent, but if I need some explanation, my emails were always answered within 24 hours.

Tried a similar named product first but ended with this one. It does EVERYTHING typing you could ask for. Just miss a Mac version for my laptop where I am using Textexpander.

about PhraseExpress and Dropbox ·

I have been using this "little" app for a good couple of years now. I have it installed on all the computers I work on. It's recent release made it possible for my phrase file (houses all your shortcuts) to be kept in sync using Dropbox. Even better!

I have also made it a point to introduce several colleagues to this. And they have found it equally useful ever since.


Came here because of another program
