The aBreevy8 Blog

As is customary for this blog, let's start out with the tl;dr version: aBreevy8 is a fantastic alternative to Magical text expander. But don't just take our word for it; try it out and see for yourself. It's totally free to try, and in fact, the free version is fully functional as long as you have 11 aBreevy8tions or less. Give it a go and let us know what you think!

Onto the longer, wordier version: as is typical, we won't be saying anything negative about Magical, or any other alternative app here for that matter. Why? Because that's not fair to the developers who worked hard on their creation. The point of this post isn't to disparage, or make anyone look bad: it's to educate readers already seeking an alternative to the Magical text expander app.

So, really, when you get down to brass tacks (I've been wanting to use that expression for a while now, ha), there are likely two main reasons why you might want to try an alternative to Magical: pricing, and app compatibility.

aBreevy8 is not only a more affordable, cheaper alternative to Magical, but it also works in more applications and programs. Here's why: Magical is a browser extension for Chrome and Edge, so it'll only work if you're typing in those web browsers. aBreevy8, on the other hand is a Windows desktop app, so it works in your web browser (Chrome, Edge, Firefox, Brave, Opera, etc.) and it also works in all of your other desktop apps like Word, Office, Outlook, Notepad, EHR / Electronic Health Record apps, Thunderbird, email clients, medical transcription programs, Visual Studio, Slack... okay, I'll stop listing things, but the point is aBreevy8 works literally any app you could possibly type in, not just web browsers!

Now, don't get me wrong, I do love me some typing. Especially since I'm using a mechanical keyboard - each press of the key sounds amazing, feels amazing. But let's be real, a picture is worth a thousand words. So instead of writing a bunch more paragraphs, here's a screenshot of what aBreevy8 looks like, so you can get a better idea of what it's all about:
