So I buy a new Android only to discover it thinks it knows me better than I do.
When I type it can't wait for me to finish and jumps to conclusions of what I want to say
Examples:
Bluray = bluesy

More.to come:
Post your phone misspelling a... If you dare!
Brm

I switch off predictive text - i always have - but the suggestions really fuck me off. Even if its one letter out it still cant sort the word as first option. Instead of "every" in a sentence that can only be every it might suggest elephant/ elephants /or evergreen.

You need to switch on " correct my spelling and grammar".

To clarify.
I will type a word but the phone - on it's own- - overrides my choices for its2 own.
I don't mind suggestions but DON'T EDIT ME DAMMIT. I AM A PROFESSIONAL!

Anyone else know this was by Marshall without even looking at the author column?

When I worked in publishing, I had an author whose name was Otu. Boy, the number of times my computer nearly "Out"ed him... I got used to typing O, t, u, CTRL+Z.

I typed "Apple" on my iPhone and it corrected to "Android".

I kid. I don't own any Apple crap. Proprietary garbage.

Only use predictive text if you can already spell.

I had to text my choice of food for a company meal the year before last and instead of baked manchego I asked for naked Manchester instead as a starter. Hitting n instead of b was my fault but surely it should have realised.

I love when it autocorrects and I delete the suggestion and it autocorrects the same thing again, and again, and again. Or when it autocorrects a real word to a nonsense word. Or when I'm driving in the city and the wifi tries to latch onto every damned network we pass.

  • I love when it autocorrects and I delete the suggestion and it autocorrects the same thing again, and again, and again. Or when it autocorrects a real word to a nonsense word. Or when I'm driving in the city and the wifi tries to latch onto every damned network we pass.

    It autocorrects when I space for the next word, then I backspace and it returns to what I had typed, and then I space again and my word remains. It's a hassle, but a slight one.

    This is my biggest frustration. I'm fine with it making suggestions but don't replace what I type over and over again. I work with a lot of people who are from India and Ethiopia and it's always trying to guess what word I'm typing when I am typing a name.

    Every time......EVERY time I write the word Fuck in a msg, it autocorrects and replaces that word with my name. I'm not sure what the Rick my phone is trying to tell me, but it's very Ricking frustrating, for Rick's sake!

    I like how these corporations try to pretend adults don't use the f-word on a semi regular basis in real life. Yet they feel the need to censor out the word from their algorithms to protect us or something. Meanwhile the CEO's of these said companies are spewing out the f-bombs like there's no tomorrow in their board meetings or at the golf course.
