Make Text Entry More Efficient with Macro Text Expansion
Posted September 2, 2014 at 06:00 am by Will Verduzco
One of the best things about the modern day smartphone is its ability to save us time here and there. Features like Google Now keep us apprised of all the relevant news and scores so that we don’t have to manually search for the information ourselves. However, this isn’t the only way in which our smart devices can save us time.
Many of us often use our mobile devices to enter repetitive tidbits of information. XDA Forum Member mikmitch recently realized this, and developed an Xposed module that streamlines the process to make things significantly more efficient.
Example use cases could include using @cell to fill in your cell phone number, @email to fill in your email address, and @addr to fill in your street address. The module works by allowing you to enter a short key sequence that is automatically converted to another, longer field once the short string is typed. This solution works at the text widget level, so all keyboards are compatible.
If you often find yourself entering in information on your mobile device and you’ve been looking for a way to streamline the process, head over to the Text Macro Xposed Module thread to get started.
