yType is a typing accelerator. Type faster and easier with yType. The magic of yType is you type a few letters to instantly insert chunks of text or pictures you use a lot instantly in any application. Save hours of time, do less and accomplish more.

"I'm a good, accurate and fast typer but with yType I am better, faster and even more accurate. I ♥ yType and can't understand why everyone doesn't use it."


Do you get tired typing the same url, address or response letter all the time? Save hours of time, typing hundreds of characters and the strain on your hands, eyes and brain of doing the same thing over and over. This is what computers are for. Use yType and type a few letters and a space to pop into any document a word, a sentence, a page, 20 pages or even more instantly. Use yType to 'do less and accomplish more'.

Another way that yType can save time is in typing symbols and other difficult to find unicode characters. Make up your own unique shortcut names like vcheckmark to expand to the symbol ✓ or vheart for ♥ , etc. for unicode characters you might find useful like ✞, ✡, ♩, ☢, , ♀ ←, ♒, ¢, €, ♞, ☯, ☂, ☞, ⑆, ©, ®, ™, etc... yType makes all symbols much easier to use.

Do you have Hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia? That is the fear of long words. yType is the cure for this terrible disease which afflicts children like the Hawaiian boy whose name is Kananinoheaokuuhomeopuukaimanaalohilo. yType would allow him to type just 'ka' and a space or return to expand his whole name instantly saving him thousands of hours he might otherwise spend during his lifetime just typing his own name. Or how long would it take you to type the name for old Bangkok, Thailand which is Krungthepmahanakonbowornratanakosinmahintarayudyayamahadiloponoparatanarajthaniburiromudomrajniwesmahasatarnamornpimarnavatarsatitsakattiyavisanukamphrasit or this hill in New Zealand Tetaumatawhakatangihangakoauaotamateaurehaeaturipukapihimaungahoronukupokaiwhenuaakitanarahu. These are all extreme but real examples. You may never type words that long but if run a business you have letters you use all the time. If your a scientist then you have chemical, botanical or other names that are often huge and hard to remember. If your just an ordinary individual (like we are) then you need to type your address, your full name, directions to a party, and many other repetitive chunks of text. The point is with yType you spend much less time typing.
