I have switched to the Incredible from the BB Storm. In my Storm, I set "u" to auto-correct to "you," "brb" to auto-correct to "be right back," etc. What apps are available that include this? I think Uber Dictionary does, but I'd like to find one that i can use with Swype.
Is there a way to delete auto-correct suggestions? I'm typing to my gf and I get 'bane' instead of 'babe' when I type. I'm not writing a science fiction novel, nothing is the bane of my existance, so how in the hell can I get rid of that godawful word? "Hey Bane of My Existance, want to go out to eat tonight?"
I have looked everywhere and cant seem to find this...On my original Incredible when I typed a word it didnt ahve and then selected it from the list on the left it would auto add it to the dictionary. I have a replacement now and it doesnt do it and for the life of me I cant find the setting to enable it. Any ideas where this is at.
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.
I was texting some friends and typed (gotmy stuff for free....) as you can see I forgot to put a space between got and my. well, the auto correct gave me a little surprise. try spelling gotmy in your evo and see what you get. you will see how things could go very wrong if you're not carefull.
I have a Casio Commando not that it should matter. I've gone to Settings, Language & Keyboard and can't find anywhere there to turn off Auto Correct when texting. I don't mind it suggesting words and then me selecting them but it drives me nuts when I type a word and hit space and it automatically changes the words. How to make this stop, I'm ready to ditch Go SMS Pro and try another messaging App at this point.
For instance when i type in the word "me" but when it auto corrects the e has a downward carrot above it. and it does this for many many words. language is in english, so not sure what it could be. i use for now the htc keyboard.
With my BlackBerry Storm there was a (I think it was called) a custom dictionary. I was able to type something like "OMW=On My Way" in a text message and it would substitute the words "On My Way" for the letters "OMW". Is there such a feature for the Droid with your application?
I am loving my Eris and looking forward to the Dec 11 update.
I am just wondering if the auto-suggest dictionary is user-modifiable. I use compact QWERTY (like SureType on BB). When I type "we", what comes out is "qe" which is the default word it wants to use. Perhaps I used it once and saved it? How can I delete the words I don't want popping up anymore (especially the ones I may have added)?
When using Google Hangouts to text on my Nexus 5, every time I enter a web url the string is spell checked and becomes un-clickable. Example:If I type: "whatismyandrioidversion.com" into a txt/sms chat using hangouts, the string is spell checked and auto corrected to "what is my android version.com".
So, then I have to go through a very annoying process of deleting the spaces between each word and fixing the url before I send the message.
I really like better keyboard pro except for one thing: when i type the phrase/word "lol" it always suggests "LOL" (all caps) and auto types it when i press space (auto-correct feature) the only problem is i almost never capitalize this word, any way to get it to stop doing this without disabling auto-correct?
When i use the compact keyboard, or T9 (not qwerty)..when I type OK, it always defaults to PM and i have to click OK, which is second on the list. Also, when i type home, it always defaults to GOOD, and i have to manually click home, is there a way that it can learn which words use most so that i wont have to constantly pick those words? it would speed up my typing by 150% if it just used the words i used most.
I'm wondering how to add words to the dictionary (aside from going into menu>settings>language & keyboard) like I used to be able to with my droid. If i was texting along and came to a word that wasn't in the dictionary, I could just long press and then select "add to dictionary". Well this phone doesn't have that option and so I'm wondering if I'm just missing it or what..?
I love the fact that I can type words like "im" and it predicts into "I'm". Is it an all or nothing though because I'm continually getting odd words thrown into my texts and not catching it. Mostly happens with slang usage or proper names. Is the only trick to keep entering these things into the personal dictionary until you root out the majority of mishaps or is there a better way. Almost wish there was a list of usual suspects that it'd auto fix but that it'd leave alone proper name entries and abbreviations and so forth. Wishful thinking or possible?
I know that to delete words I've manually input into Swype is simply to highlight, hit the swype button and delete, but what about words that come in the Swype dictionary? For instance, I often mistakenly put in the word "Urea" when I want to say, "Yea." I don't see myself every needing the word "Urea," so I want to delete it from the Swype dictionary, but I can't seem to figure it out because it's not a word I made Swype learn, it's a word that came with Swype. Any way to fix this?
I was having some fun swyping curse words and all of those words are now in the dictionary. My nieces play with the phone and I don't want them typing "fun" and "shine" and getting other words.. Any thoughts on where to do delete those unspeakables?
The predictive text on the HTC stock keyboard works great. However, there are certain occasions where I do not want to select the predicted word (or any of the other suggestions). Normally, I would want to hit the spacebar to proceed to the next word I want to type. However, when I hit spacebar it selects the predicted text and replaces what I typed. Is there a trick to skipping predicted text?
Is there anything special I need to do to transfer data from an old SD card (the stock 2GB) to a new one (8GB)? Can I just copy the entire old card using a card reader to my PC, then copy all of that back to the new card? Or do I need to do anything special on the Incredible itself?
Lately I noticed that Google maps and Google sky have been giving me bad direction information. Today I downloaded a compass app and sure enough the reading is off by almost a full 180 degrees. The program's calibrate feature didn't seem to correct the problem and I was wondering if there was a built-in way to recalibrate the magnetometer.
