Designed by Lifehacker.com, Texter is a must-have tool for bloggers, writers and editors, and pretty much anyone who types a lot on their PC – even for chatting! This amazing application enables users to type faster by assigning hotkeys for commonly-used words.

The program sits quietly in the system tray, and its behaviour can be manipulated by right-clicking on the icon.

So suppose I type the word ‘Windows 7’ quite often, due to daily writing needs. Now, in the hotstring management box for Texter, I’ve simply told the program to replace ‘win7’ with Windows 7’ every time I type the former. Texter works across all applications, and instantly fulfills the task.
