I hate autocorrupt. It screws up my writing more than it fixes it. (And I also hate typing on cell phones in general.)

using gesture typing (aka swype) means i'm always on my toes with autocorrect since it's technically always autocorrect writing for me based off a few squiggly lines i rub over my phone's screen

i've trained myself to catch the word suggestion and reflexively backspace it if it's the wrong word and try again

it actually helps me type pretty decently fast with a touchscreen? i can't do normal typing anymore

EDIT: oh yeah it also helps a bunch because i rarely ever have two hands free to type on my phone and swype is inherently one-handed

Yeah, I have a gesture typing thing, and oh boy, the malapropisms it sprinkles through my text if I'm not paying attention.

So, like, every time I'm up at 3 in the morning.

My phone has decided that when I do a dual-word swipe (e.g. "to + cold") and it helpfully suggests the correct form ("too cold"), it won't actually erase the first word any more, so I end up with "totoo cold".

This has been far more annoying than I care to admit.

some backstory time

the old phone had a somewhat annoying auto-correct functionality which only dealt with a language at a time. the "saving grace" was that at least pressing backspace would undo the correction and you could continue normally. in practice writing stuff became a series of "write word, press space, press backspace, press space, continue"

on this new phone, the included autocorrect provides no such "saving grace". this is insanely annoying as it happens also when not using swipe functionality. at least these is some sort of multi language support for what I've seen (I could be wrong though), but ehhhh


tl;dr: this has been like picking a poison between multi language and auto-correct cancels.

I do dislike autocorrect, but I use it because typing is slower without it. Same with swiping, you need to sort of get a feel for which words it's not worth using for.

I don't use autocorrect, auto-suggest, swype, or any of that junk. It's just me and the basic keyboard, baby. Backspace is only friend of me.

I also can't type in portrait mode. Come at me!

My phone's predictive text thinks that "scritches" is the next word I should write after every other word

e: wtf BMF, there's no vertical screen space on landscape with the keyboard up, and the middle letters are stupidly hard to reach with your thumbs, how do you manage that

okay

I prefer being able to see the what I've written while I'm writing something, which I can't do (at times) outside of portrait mode as the keyboard is too big.
Admittely, it may just be fault of the preinstalled virtual keyboard app.

I turned off autocorect as soon it was a thing on my phones. As I wrote in at least three different languages, and one of it was a local dialect, It couldn't cope anyway.

But if it could just fix my most common issues of typing a instead of shift or b/n instead of space, that would be great.
