Quickly type snippets of text
We’ve looked at several keyboard apps for iOS 8, but Snipboard is one that merely modifies the standard iOS keyboard so that you can quickly type out frequently-used ‘snippets’ of text, such as your email or postal address.
Just launch Snipboard and you are prompted to type in the snippets that you want to store. When you’re typing in other apps you can tap the globe symbol on the standard keyboard to activate Snipboard, and you’ll see all your snippets displayed on screen, ready to be inserted with a tap of your finger.
Some rival apps, such as TextExpander, are arguably more efficient, but Snipboard works well if you just need to store a few key snippets of text. It’s free too, so there’s no problem with trying it out to see if it saves you some time when typing emails and messages. Cliff Joseph
It’s a bit basic, but this free app can save you time typing out frequentlyused bits of text.
