Texpand user reviews :
for those having trouble with it turning off, check your battery optimization. if its optimized the system will put it to sleep and turn off the accessibility. google is your friend.
Fabulous app that saves you a lot of time and key strokes. Simple to use from the word go. Good job guys, wished I’d stumbled upon it sooner!
I just started using my smartphone to take notes on jobs, I’m a contractor, I had been typing or speaking my notes but sometimes I can’t talk because it’s noisy or I don’t want the home owner to hear me say something negative about their lovely death trap, or they are renting it out and it’s not good practice to day some of the things I have to say. So I did some research and found that this app was highly recommended and I’ll be field testing it and the price to upgrade seems reasonable so if the free version tests out I’ll give it a better rating and purchase it.
Truly a blessing, when you have to respond to people a lot of the same information. Thanks to the developer
