Our friends at Smile Software found themselves in the position where they could no longer use a shared reminder to automatically synchronize TextExpander snippets with apps like Daymate. If you are interested in the reasoning behind the changes in TextExpander visit the Smile Blog.
Daymate 1.2 contains among other things the necessary changes to work with the new technique of snippet synchronization. Unfortunately one side effect is that snippet synchronization must be triggered manually from time to time thus no longer happening automatically. We prepared a support article that describes the changes and how to trigger a synchronization.
Other than that, Daymate 1.2 also adds the Spanish localization and improves the energy footprint.

We added new powerful options in Daymate 1.1 that allow you to take control where actions are inserted. Previously and by default actions are inserted at the top of a project. To customize this go to Settings > Behavior.
While top and bottom insertion is obvious, i want to talk about the intelligent option a little bit. It works like this:
You select a project and tap to add a new action. This action will be inserted at the top. After you tap to dismiss the action editor, you have a certain time threshold to append an action. If you are within this threshold the action is inserted after or below the previously created action. If you wait to long and the threshold is passed, the next action you create will be inserted again at the top and the intelligence mechanism starts from the beginning. Selecting a different project also resets the intelligence mechanism.
This option is fantastic when you have big ongoing projects like me. As the project goes on, new actions occur that are more urgent and belong more towards the top. Intelligent insertion enables you to have the best of both worlds. Insertion at the top and maintained order for chained actions.
So grab your iPhone or iPad go to Daymate Settings > Behavior and check out these new options.
