Comments on Typing Assistant 5.0

The Good
* Has multiple typing assisting features, such as learn commonly used phrases, allowing user to create custom phrases/abbreviations, correcting typos/spelling errors, and pasting recently copied words/phrases.
* Has a "skilled typist" and a "unskilled typist" mode.
* "Unskilled typists" allows user to take advantage of a 75,000+ English dictionary for word suggestions.
* Full Unicode support.
* Application independent - works with most programs that involve typing.
* Has the ability to exclude specific programs so Typing Assistant won't give suggestions while typing in those programs, or the ability to set Typing Assistant to only work with specific programs.

The Bad
* Does not have the ability to make anything truly "automatic" - you must use the pop up menu every time.
* Sometimes it works (gives suggestions like it should) and sometimes it doesn't.

you can find details of each with download links over in the game discussion forums. I've not yet posted any images, but will later today.


Thanks for todays giveaway.
