xType allows you to quickly insert frequently used phrases in your applications.

Tired of writing the same text over and over again? Anytime you type text into an application,
xType can help you do it faster and more accurately!

Whether it's your name, your e-mail address, the URL of your blog, your personal address, etc,
you probably often find yourself typing the same text again and again. xType is here to help you
save time by 'typing' these frequently used items for you. Just choose your list of abbreviations,
and xType will automatically show you related texts as you type. More Info »

With xType, you will be able to quickly insert standard greetings, signatures (including formatted
text) or phrases into any application. For example, instead of typing your address in full, you
would simply type 'Addr1' and xType would come up with our full address. Once you define
an abbreviation, it is available at all times, anywhere text can be typed, no matter what
application you are using!
