iExpressions allows you to use After Effects expressions without writing or reading a single line of code. It ships with over 60 iExpressions in six different categories - and each of them comes with an easy and intuitive to use interface. As its such a huge package, it is difficult to explain all its possibilities in a few lines.
It starts with the bread and butter stuff you will need every day: Wiggle properties or connect them via links in various ways. Do you sometimes use parenting? Think of linking iExpressions as a much more flexible way to link stuff together. You can, for example, automatically increase the opacity of a layer when the opacity of the linked layer decreases. Or you can also link the x and y position of a layer to two different properties or use time delayed links to create trailing effects.
There is also a lot of more specialized stuff, like iExpressions to automatically animate properties according to sound or to generate different kinds of random text. Here is an example of what you can do with the physics simulations contained in the bundle:
