Breevy and DisplayFusion as part of the Humble Bundle

For those that are interested, you can get the Text Expansion tool Breevy, and the multiple monitor tool, DisplayFusion for less than $8 during the current Humble Bundle sale.

If you’re not familiar, Breevy is a great text expansion tool for Windows. While the Mac has multiple choices for this sort of software, Windows is lagging pretty far behind. However, Breevy is a solid entry and normally sells for $35 on it’s own. To get it for less than $8 is a steal!

Text expansion tools are great for creating shortcuts keys to frequently used phrases. Or, you can use acronyms and get the complete title spelled out. You can easily see this with games. For example, NFS for Need for Speed. Or SotA for Shroud of the Avatar. Now you can type that acronym and get the whole title spelled out for you. They’re also very convenient when filling in boilerplates.

DisplayFusion is the tool to have installed when working with multiple monitors. You can snap windows to a certain location, have Taskbars on each screen, set wallpaper for each monitor, align windows in specific configurations and a slew of other features. To put it bluntly, DisplayFusion should be built straight into Windows. However, you can pick up a copy for a great price.

There are other tools in the bundle, but to me, these are the best ones to have.

The sale runs for a few days so you should have plenty of time to grab a few licenses.
