Why Shortexts

You might want to use shortexts to paste recurrent texts faster in your docs, text editor, emails...

For example you can paste very fast stuff like ...

 

I've been using it for a couple of months now, and I have saved quite a bit of time of searching for texts and passwords in folders, text files, excels, websites ...

I'm very glad I decided to develop it... I think i couldn't do it with it anymore since I use it multiple times a day!

 

How it works

  1. Download the app, move it to Applications folder and open it

FAQ

Why does OSX not open the app the first time?

It is because the app is not downloaded from the App Store. By default OSX only allows to run apps downloaded from the app store.

To run Shortexts you probably need to change the Security Settings so you can use it.

Once you are done and run the app, then you can restore your original config.

BTW, you have nothing to worry about, it works just like a web application only in the desktop.

 

Privacy

No need to say, but I'll make sure just in case.

Shortexts is a local app: it doesn't send any data through the internet. You are safe.

The only connection it performs is at the startup to see if there's new version, but other than that, everything is local.

Why is it so heavy if it's so simple?

It's built on Electron Atom with web technologies, so it's like having a browser.

Due to the browser (chrome/chromium), the app is around 140mb. It's no the best but it's okay.

In any case, I've been using it for a couple of months now and have not seen any performance issue.

Will there be Windows and Linux apps?

It's on the roadmap. So, hopefully, yes.

Is it free?

For now yes. There will probably be a premium version, but nothing decided yet.

Anyway if you feel it's helping you a lot, you can donate. That will accelerate development (plus you'll have early access to that likely premium version if so).

What's next?

Just released (June 2016) this version is only the beginning.

At the moment I'm developing exciting features that will provide a faster workflow in your desktop.

Any other thing?

Great! Send me a message and i'll answer asap. You can do so in the next form.
