TextExpander 4 Leaves Mac App Store

Lex Friedman:

Because TextExpander must observe your keystrokes anywhere on your Mac to be useful, it can’t work in sandboxed form, so TextExpander 4 isn’t available in the Mac App Store. Now that the Mac App Store requires sandboxing, developers of non-sandboxed apps can submit only bug fixes for those apps in the store; any new or significantly updated apps must restrict themselves to operating in a sandboxed environment.

As before, Smile has gone to some extra effort to support both their Mac App Store and direct customers.
