April 6, 2009 in Utility (E)

[] San Jose, California - app4mac has released Presto 1.0, a new utility designed for Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard. With Presto, users can define abbreviations for frequently-used text strings. When an abbreviation is typed, it expands to the full phrase with a cool user interface. Tired of writing the same text over and over again? Anytime you type text into an application, Presto can help you do it faster and more accurately.

Whether it's your name, your e-mail address, the URL of your blog, your personal address, etc, you probably often find yourself typing the same text again and again. Presto is here to help you save time by 'typing' these frequently used items for you. Just choose your list of abbreviations, and Presto will automatically show you related texts as you type.

With Presto, you will be able to quickly insert standard greetings, signatures (including formatted text) or phrases into any application. For example, instead of typing your address in full, you would simply type 'Addr1' and Presto would come up with our full address. Once you define an abbreviation, it is available at all times, anywhere text can be typed, no matter what application you are using.
