      Keyboard Maestro vs QuicKeys opinions
      pros, cons and recent comments
      Keyboard Maestro is not merely a "text expander". It is a tool for increasing your efficiency in most operations on a Mac from system preferences and utilities to applications. It is so powerful that everything else pales by comparison. If you decide to try it you will only scratch the surface of its capabilities for the first year.

      TextExpander vs QuicKeys opinions
      pros, cons and recent comments
      For text macros, TextExpander is the best. It's simple to use, powerful, and free for non-commercial use. Sadly, Quickeys is no longer supported, and the dog-in-the-manger owners of the software refuse to let it into the public domain.
