I am looking for a system-wide solution for using keyboard shortcuts to automatically fill in canned responses in Mac OS X (10.9 Mavericks). I would be using this in email, online forums and discussion boards, Messages.app, Skype, etc. to autofill phrases such as "Please let me know your thoughts at your convenience. Thanks!"

What solutions/options are available to achieve this functionality? Any and all thoughts are appreciated. Thanks in advance for your help!

TypeIt4Me has to be one of the oldest Mac utilities. I was using it with OS 7!
