Default writing an app that responds to what is typed on the keyboard

Hello,

I am requesting information regarding writing an app that would respond to user input from the keyboard. Basically, I want to turn certain words into symbols when they are typed. So, if 'brb' was typed, then I would put up "Be Right Back" or something similar onto the screen.

So, I need to know the following:

1. How to run an app as a thread
2. How to have an app monitor what is typed in as input from the keyboard
2a. Is this limited to text / email / any app?

Thanks in advance

Are you wanting to change brb to Be Right Back for any running app?

Are you wanting to filter and convert keystrokes as they go thru the system queue?

i'm wondering the same...i'm looking for an app that will change "u" to "you" or allow you to add your own word shortcuts that will automatically correct as you type. have searched all over and haven't found any app like this yet, but suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!
