Unfortunately TextExpander touch lives within the limitations of the iOS platform, and cannot expand system-wide like it can on a Mac. Because of that we offer an SDK to iOS app developers, and over 120 apps include TextExpander touch support, including most of the popular Twitter, note, and to-do apps:
So, on your iPad you are only able to use TextExpander within these applications, or its own editor, but not Apple’s apps such as Mail, Safari or Pages.
Thanks for using TextExpander from Smile!
Smile. Software that’s just right.

Reader Story: Geographic Arbitrage in Real Life
Sunday, 21st August 2011 (by J.D. Roth)
*** begin quote ***
You can save money by traveling to a place where a given item is cheaper to buy, but time and travel costs need to be considered which may negate any savings. But because I travel regularly, usually by car, to visit family members (mine and spouse’s), I’m able to take advantage of pricing differences between my home area and theirs.
Though it may sound like it, I’m not exploiting overall cost of living differences in the sense that it’s generally cheaper to live in Tennessee than in California. This is an item-specific phenomenon, so it works for me when I visit family members, and it works for them (on different items) when they visit me. Below are some examples of how this has helped me save money.

I don’t travel that much.
Perhaps there’s a interest in this strategy.
The only time I ever did anything like this was bringing home cheap butts for the in-laws.
That was before instituting my Zen-like policy of “I don’t have anything to do cigarettes”. Part of “walking gently on the earth”.
