Custom snippet support

The only thing missing that I would find really useful is a way to add and use your own custom snippets.

For instance, and this is only a very simple example, when writing an html file, it would be good to select a snippet that sets all the basic stuff up for you rather than having to type it all out from scratch every time you write html. Something like this:

I'm sure developers coding in other languages would find this useful too.
Textastic supports TextExpander touch. This allows you to create custom snippets: http://www.smilesoftware.com/TextExpander/touch/
H i Alexander,

thanks for the quick reply. I appreciate that snippet support is available through Textexpander, I guess it would just be nice to have it built in . That way users wouldn't have to rely on a third party app for some of their regularly used functionality. If Textexpander became buggy or had problems it would have a negative effect Textastic's users and I also think having to pay for two apps instead of just the one in order to get functionality that should be native is going to put some people off using your app.

I don't want to sound like I'm complaining too much as I think your app is superb and much better than the other solutions in the app store. Please keep up the great work :)
