    For simple text substitution, TextExpander and Keyboard Maestro can do a lot of the same things. However, Keyboard Maestro can replicate in-app functionality (by specific apps), run scripts based on events like USB / device insertion and joining a specific wifi network, etc. TextExpander is just a macro / text replacer.
