This is the post about the text shortcut phrases I use on android phones.
We all know how much inconvenient it is to type long repetitive words/excerpts on tiny mobile keyboards. Luckily, there are few ways to use technology for our convenience (as almost every time).
There are certain apps & ways that “expand” what you type to what you actually wanted to type; kind of like shortcuts e.g. typing
ty will expand to
thank you & such.
Also, the app can assign some dynamic values like current date, hour, minute, day, month, year in number/word formats. It can also detect the case of shortcut first letter & expand the phrase first letter to same case i.e.
ty will expand to
thank you; &
Ty will expand to
