    I have looked on the web and through the Google Android Market. I am looking for an app like the Blackberry AutoText or iPhone Xpandr (!X) that will watch what you type and, for example, if I type a key combination such as myadd it will expand it to myemailaddress@whereever.com or I could type xsig and it would add my signature line to the bottom of an email or letter I am writing.

    Thanks much

    not sure if it is still available, but there is an app called FireKeys that did this.

    Yes, it is available and it does, sort of, do what I am looking for but I have to use their keyboard for input and I prefer to use the Thumb keyboard by Beansoft so I'm guessing it is either one or the other. The other thing I noticed, and it may be a setting, is that it pops up the autocorrection and an option to choose, it doesn't change it automagically, which was what I was hoping for. I guess I'll keep looking.

    Thanks
