AutoCompleter: An Early Take At Autocompletion for Mac OS X

Published January 20th, 2007

AutoCompleter: Not just the best autocompleter

AutoCompleter System Extension for Text ShortcutsOriginally downloaded 1/20/07. This software is almost 6 years old now… almost as old as Mac OS X itself! And yet, I’ve found the company’s other nifty utilities (MaxiMice, Quitling) to be pretty good, and still functioning even though the developer seems to have abandoned them. At some point, I’m going to write the owner of Catchy Software to see if anyone’s still home and to let them know the results of my testing. From the sounds of Autocompleter, this is a tool that could take the place of tools like TextExpander, which was great when it was freeware from its developer, but which became quite expensive ($30) when purchased by a software company last year. As a TextExpander license-holder (I was “grandfathered” in because I contributed to Peter Maurer’s Textpander), I don’t care about the cost. But as someone who cares about Mac OS X software generally, I do… so I’m always on the lookout for the best value/bargain around. I’m curious to see if this Cocoa-only extension, which also comes with some Applescripts and an application service, is worth the $15 price of admission.

Version as tested: 1.0.
