Texpand is an Android abbreviation expansion application designed to help users with impaired manual dexterity easily input text in Android apps. This is achieved by defining short abbreviations for frequently used phrases. To provide this functionality we tap into the accessibility service API provided by the Android operating system. We neither share nor sell user data to third parties, we use the information provided to us through accessibility service API only to help users with typing difficulty become efficient with their text input in Android devices.
Texpand uses the accessibility service API to monitor what you type in text-fields. We do not store what you type in any form. This data is used only to search for user-defined abbreviations for the purpose of replacing them with user-defined matching phrases. We do not insert any other text into fields other than the user-defined phrases which are only inserted as a result of user action. Neither do we search for arbitrary text to understand what the user might be typing. Text input search is strictly restricted for user-defined abbreviations.
Granting the accessibility service permission will give Texpand the following capabilities along with explanations with why they are required.
Only the following information is collected:
We use this information to rank phrases by how frequently they are used, to put the user-defined phrases that are used most at the top of a suggestion window that appears when the user types text that match multiple abbreviations.
This information is stored locally, it is only transferred to another medium when a user initiated backup is performed. Texpand doesn’t make automated backups.
Texpand does not use any third party analytics services neither do we send any information to our servers. Texpand does not have a permission to connect to the Internet. You can check this on Texpand Play Store listing in the permissions section.
We put user privacy over everything else. As a result personally identifiable data made available by Texpand is not transferred to any other party, in short user data never leaves a user's device. We never sell, share or trade any user data to any third party.
We may update this privacy statement to reflect changes to our information practices. We encourage you to periodically review this page for the latest information on our privacy practices.
