On my old Blackberry I could programme the dictionary to change certain letter combos in to the correct words. Kind of like - "helo" > "hello".
As this was user programmable, it was also useful for including things like - "hl" > "hello mate".
On to my point. I write " I'll " a lot but get annoyed sticking the apostrophe in. If I write it without the apostrophe, it's just the word "ill" so it doesn't change it to "i'll". On my Blackberry I made "il" become "I'll".
Or, if I type " il " and keep selecting " I'll " from the suggested spellings, will the dictionary eventually change its default suggestion?
I've got an EditText that I don't want spelling suggestions for since it's just a user name input field.
I've tried setting autoText to be "false" but when I start typing in the EditText with the soft keyboard I am still provided with spelling suggestions. I've also tried setting inputType to be "none" however that doesn't help either.
What's the correct way to disable this functionality (in XML or in code) so that no spelling suggestions are provided?
I've downloaded the Swiftkey Keyboard and like it a lot but am a bit frustrated by the autocomplete concept they use. I guess there should be two options: autocorrect spelling mistakes I make and another option for autocompleting words I am trying to type. Too often I find that Swiftkey's "predicted" word option based on what I type is so far off that I end up sending a nonsensical message to people.
The default HTC Weather app isn't working today after I restarted my phone after a test.
The Current location 1/2 says Albuquerque, New Mexico. It says "No weather data available"
The 2/2 entry I programed is Albuquerque, NM and that works.
I just added a 3rd Dallas, TX and that works.
Something is odd. It's using the long spelled out state name for the Current location and that doesn't seem to be found in the Weather server when it checks. Just the 2 letter state names seem to work.
Now I found one very curious issue, If I can access internet (WIFI, 3G), and change date/time 2010 year to 2011 year, after while, system automaticlly update my date/time 2011 to 2010 year. In fact I had disable the "automatic update date/time" function in setting.
following is my log, GMS had done this, why? how to remove this function?
My EditText needs to accept input consisting of partial words, names, etc. At least on my HTC Desire, this is difficult since the keyboard wants to suggest and/or correct some entries (e.g., changes "gor" to "for"). I tried setting textNoSuggestions on the view, but that doesn't fix it.
Im' looking to backup certain parts of my phone in case of a firmware upgrade goes haywire. Also, those are the things i want to keep... I'm looking for a way to save my text messages, my spelling dictionary and the browsers stored passwords aswell as the bookmarks. I know there are apps that does this, but I'm intrested in the "manual" way. anyone who can fill me in which directories to backup?
I posted this a few days ago but nobody can solve it and I know there must be a way. My problem is that whenever I go to type 'Yo' in a text, it automatically corrects it to 'To'. I'm guessing that I corrected this myself a while ago and now it has it saved. I already tried adding 'Yo' to my user dictionary but the problem persists. Is there really no way to change the default correction of a word?
This is a confirmed fix for the long lag time (5+ minutes) to reconnect after losing a 4G signal. Those of us using a rom with the newest software 1.47.651.1 have been having issues with the 4G connection not reconnecting when losing 4G signal. These instructions fix this problem.
Requirements: Your MSL code (See Here: [How To] Retrieve MSL CDMA Workshop Method - xda-developers)
Instructions: Turn OFF your 4G radio if it is turned on! 1) Click on phone and dial ##DATA# (##3282#) 2) Click on "Edit Mode" 3) Type in your MSL code (see above if you don't have it yet) 4) Click on the menu entry "WiMAX" 5) Scroll down the list and click on "WiMAX_Scan_Retry(s)" 6) Enter the number 15 and click "OK" (This equals 15 seconds instead of 300 seconds) 7) Scroll down the list and click on "WiMAX_Entry_Delay(s)" 8) Enter the number 0 and click "OK" (This equals 0 seconds instead of 300 seconds) 9) Press the "Menu" key and click on "Commit Modifications" 10) Grab a cup of coffee, get a bite to eat, or sit back and wait for your EVO to restart
Testing: 1) Go to your phone's settings and click on "Wireless & networks" 2) Scroll down and click on 4G settings 3) Click on 4G to turn it on and wait for the status to change to "Connected to Sprint" 4) Without touching any of the menu items, cover the top half of your phone with your hands until the status changes to "Scanning..." 5) Uncover the top of the phone and count the seconds until it says "Connecting to Sprint" 6) Realize that you no longer have to cycle the 4G radio to reconnect
Result: After modifying my EVO and my girlfriend's EVO and inputting these changes, the phone will reconnect to the 4G tower in as little as 20 seconds! Yes, 20 seconds, the most I have seen so far is 30 seconds after dropping the connection. This is a HUGE improvement over the 5+ minutes to reconnect (300+ seconds).
what exactly does the Spell Correction feature do? I realized today that I had it disabled all this time. I tried typing with Spell Correction enabled but haven't noticed any difference. The user manual explains the settings like this:
Prediction Select to enable the word prediction feature which provides a list of possible words that reflect the characters of the keys you have tapped as well as characters of nearby keys.
Spell correction Select to correct typographical errors by selecting from a list of possible words that reflect the characters of the keys you have tapped as well as characters of nearby keys. ...but the keyboard seems to me to function exactly the same with or without spell correction enabled.
I have a Droid Eris and have the spell correction turned on. I noticed that when I type a word that isn't already in the phone's memory, it says that it's saving it. Does anyone know how I can edit that list? It has accidentally saved a couple "words" that aren't really words and I wanted to clear it out.
I'm generally happy with my X2, but just got an annoying issue going on and cant find any documentation for it. I was chatting in MSN and somehow clicked some buttons by mistake. It activated somesort of word-guessing-system. I'm sorry, I don't even understand what it is. But basically it will popup a small bar where it asks to Add word? or something. I thought its spellchecker or something like that.. Anyway, I don't remember what i pressed and there is no option in MSN for it. Using Windows Mobile 6.5 Pro.
I am an android user, using sony xperia z with 4.3. I have problem about the google voice (GV for now) and keyboard, im not the same as everybody with missing GVT or wanting to disable it, i actually like it a lot, especially because it support my language (not english).
using voice input is easy: 1. i press the GV icon 2. i talk 3. text coming out, there will be miss typed/heard sentences 4. you know, if the system doubt your speech and want to correct it, you just tap the word with grey underline,it indicating that it have multiple option 5. then you choose the correct sentences
My step number 4 is a problem, because the correction that pop up to correcting/delete sentences is being blocked by keyboard, that is why i say it also a keyboard problem. so i cannot choose anything from it. and i have this problem since 4.2.2, the first day i upgraded it to 4.3 is okay, but suddenly it happen again. i don't think i will resetting or formatting because i have a lot of app and chat history that i cannot delete.
here is the screenshot and i highlighted the point of this thread with red in case you want to skip reading. [URL] .....
You know how when you type something incorrectly it corrects it to the most likely word? Well, in a few cases I have saved words on accident, like I saved the word "tou" once by accident. So now every time I type that it stays at that and doesn't auto correct to "you." How can I go into my saved words or even predictive text menu and edit words?

Does an app developer need to do something peculiar in code to get a newer version of an uploaded app to show up in the notification bar on installed users' phone?I am reading comments that vary wildly and I can neither determine if the message content I am reading is relevant or current.With the pace of change in Android, perhaps we should filter messages older than a year from results? :)
I am looking for an automatic conversation recorder application. What I need the application to do is to constantly 'listen' on the microphone, and as soon somebody around starts speaking (the noise level increases to high) it automatically starts to record the conversation. Once there are no more sounds coming in for e.g. a few minutes, it stops recording.
Anyone know of an app that will automatically put my phone into airplane mode?

When I run any application from Eclipse on my real G1 device (a retail one, this is not a dev phone), I am granted the READ_PHONE_STATE and WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE even if i don't declare them in the AndroidManisfest.xml. I actually can call TelephonyManager.getDeviceID () to retrieve the IMEI and I see these permissions in Settings -> Applications. I don't have this behavior in the emulator. Does anyone have the same "problem"?

I am new to Android Developer's Community.So Please tell me if it is possible or not to make such an application and also tell me how much time and effort will it take?Will it be easy or tough for a beginner?
I am very impressed with Swype and just amazed that it is able to correctly guess what I am trying to type most of the time. But I have a question. What is the correct way to add a period? It seems that when i first started using it, if I used a period it would automatically add a space and capitalize the next word. But it doesn't do that now. I get no space or capitalization and have to add the space manually.
I recently installed Chrome-To-Phone, but I'm trying to figure out how I can send commands to the phone that will automatically launch Google Navigation.I visit a location on Google Maps and send it to the phone. Google Navigation automatically opens and starts navigating.Any idea how I can accomplish this?
I wiped my phone back to factory defaults, then signed into the phone with my Google Account, then download and install Google Voice. When I launched Google Voice for the first time a dialog showed up and asked, "Sign in as mygoogleacco @gmail.com?" When I clicked the Yes button Google Voice signed in for me ***without*** asking me for any credentials.How do I add this to an application of my own?I want to make an IM / SMS application (leveraging Google Voice and Google Talk services) but I don't want the end-user to have to give me their credentials. This is on an ADP1 phone running android 1.6.
