  • (2020-11-12) Clive Dennis: Simply doesn't work. Tried the tricks suggested by other reviewers but no joy. Pity as the idea is great and it's easy to set up texts but then ?
  • (2020-04-06) Mark Mathis: Well it was nice while it lasted... even though it's been abandon-ware for 2 years it kept on trucking along, but the latest Chrome updates appear to have finally killed it :(.
  • (2019-12-30) Quantum Field Media: Worked great until all my custom text disappeared. Anyway to recover or do I have to start over?
  • (2019-12-17) Ayrat Shakirov: Very convinient to use! Thanks!

  • (2019-08-26) Denis Shuvalov: Not working
  • (2019-07-25) Frederick Nicolas: You need to open the Options(new tab) always when using the extension. Whenever you close it, it will stop working. Hope this can work on background to avoid additional tabs.
  • (2019-06-07) EOAG Games: Fine Works. But, it's not work at input field in google play review for developer. it's need another options. Thanks.
  • (2019-05-24) Matthieu Lebas: Utile et pratique. Je ne peux plus m'en passer.
  • (2019-05-15) Stephen Peel: Nice addition but it does indeed need some refinement... I'm still using it but it is frustrating at times.
  • (2019-04-19) Mike Rufty: Exactly want I needed. A simple click to insert the same comment all the time on any page.
  • (2019-02-20) MARCOS DLH: EXCELENTE!
  • (2019-01-21) Alexander Uhl: Funktioniert nicht, Texte lassen sich zwar anlegen aber nicht einfügen!?
  • (2019-01-19) Phil Wulf: Has saved me literally days of typing
  • (2019-01-09) Derp Ferret: Doesn't work with Reddit, regardless of using Reddit's markup or text editor, and regardless of whether the text is Plain Text or Rich Text in the extension. The Papercuts extension works better. http://goo.gl/vaWDT
  • (2019-01-05) Chris Wilson: This app is great! It does exactly what I need it to do. If you haven't used it before READ the reviews. It will save you some headache. I didn't know you had to shut down chrome in order for the extension to work and every time you add new text to it. Great app!
  • (2019-01-04) JUAN ANTONIO MARTINEZ SAURA: Para mis necesidades es perfecto, potente y sencillo. Mis felicitaciones al desarrollador.
  • (2018-10-10) Victor Schappert: Great concept, very simple, when it works I'm satisfied. The problem (as other reviewers have also noted) is that as of with version 2.0.5 updated September 7, 2018, the insertion functionality breaks as soon as you add a new snippet. For me fixing this problem requires restarting Chrome completely (a total pain if you have dozens of tabs). However, other reviewers have suggested you can also disable/re-enable to work around this bug. I haven't tried that yet. Anyway, fix that bug and I would give it a 4-star rating.
  • (2018-09-20) Louise Robert: Tellement pratique!!
  • (2018-09-01) Joe: Very handy. Can be buggy at times but all I had to do was re open chrome and it fixed it. Overall, great.
  • (2018-06-20) Bonnie Dalager: This doesn't work at all. I have everything set up but it doesn't insert text at all.
  • (2018-06-11) Bam Dorner: Im Moment keine Möglichkeit Textblöcke einzufügen, schade
  • (2018-04-21) Sérgio Jornalista Canal Democracia e Liberdade: Às vezes funciona. Não sei se é por questão do site em si ou pelo aplicativo. Mas vale instalá-lo.
  • (2017-09-21) Nathan Rolph: Works great. There are a few minor bugs (occasionally it will not insert and needs to be nudged to work again) but overall does exactly what it says in the tin. Easy to setup, very easy to use.
  • (2017-09-05) Paresh Koli: So much useful
  • (2017-07-27) Mike Trueblood: This makes my day to day work so much easier!
  • (2017-04-23) Jim Green: It's awsmome! I want to translate it to Chinese. Do you open source it on github? --- "Insert Text" is a awsome extension. It helps me a lot. But it remains some bugs, and it has been out of maintained it for a long time. I have fixed the bug , and republish it as another extension named "Text Snippets". I would be glad to contribute my changes to the original author if it's needed. https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/nfkicldpnflkchmbaliabnplahdhipip

  • (2019-12-30, v:2.0.5) David Monroe: Permissions - Read your browsing history
    Hello, I have been using this extension, but have just noticed the permissions tab indicates "Read your browsing history" is a requirement. It appears as this is the case whether I limit the extensions ability to read and change all your data on websites. Can you please provide information on how the permission "read your browsing history" is utilized and why it is required? Thanks!
