Add an API for text expander

Add an API for textexpander to enter notes. This program is cheap, powerful and would be very useful for generating clinic notes! http://smilesoftware.com/TextExpander/touch/sdk.html

    This is a great idea and could definitely become a possibility in the future. We will be sure to let our users know on its progress.

        The relative power of TextExpander and the built-in iOS keyboard shortcuts is comparable to that of SEAL Team Six and Gomer Pyle's Marine platoon under the command of Sgt. Carter.

        Check out this video demo: http://smilesoftware.com/TextExpander/touch/screencast/index.html

        With the newest update, the "Fill-In" features of the OSX version can now be enjoyed on iOS, too!

        PLEASE CONSIDER THIS POWERFUL ADD-ON. Other than some coding, I think that this feature's cost to drchrono would be negligible.

        The built in snippets in iOS cannot do many of the things that TE can such as multi line snippets, auto creating of dates and date type math, fill ins with the clipboard contents etc.

        Every few months I come back to check on Chrono, but until it has real macro support, (or a powerful new intuitive fast documentation system, I'll never be able to use it.

        Although iOS 6 includes keyboard shortcuts, TextExpander is far more powerful, and the snippets/macros sync with TextExpander for the Mac.

        You can see the power of TextExpander demonstrated in this screencast:

        Please consider adding an API. I think it would be simple and inexpensive.

        Thanks!

        You can already do this by programming the ipad under settings-keyboard-shortcuts. works like a CHARM!!!

        I am Out of votes, but this does seem to be a great idea. Typing "pt" can give us "patient", typing "psych" could give us psychiatrist, typing "tp" could be thought processes, and typing AODA could give alcohol and other drugs, for example.

        This is something i only dreamed existed.
