FastFox is a text expansion tool that makes repetitive typing an easier task. This app can replace text as you type. It is very useful if you find yourself typing the same text over and over again. Instead of copying and pasting, you can create shortcuts that will be replaced by any text you want.

FastFox's main window shows all the shortcuts that you have added. By default, it comes with two sample shortcuts, named SAMPLE 1 and 2. The first one is a single-line text, whereas the second one uses multiple lines. These are meant to illustrate how the app can be used. The shortcuts that you add can be used on any application.

In my testing, I found that the application works rather well, but there was a problem. In all my shortcuts, a space was added in the beginning. I wasn't able to fix this. Although it might not sound like a big deal, constantly having to be erasing spaces defies the purpose of the app. Also, although I read on the website that this can create formatted text, I didn't see the option anywhere. Also, I didn't figure out how to use shortcuts to add images.

Other than those problems, I found the app to be responsive and I like that it plays a sound when it finds a shortcut.
