Is this the end of predictive text nightmares?

August 26th, 2012 by Owen Quinn 1 Comment

If there is one thing that can make an idiot out of us quickly it’s perdictive text… but that may all be about to end.

I hate predictive texts and have lost count of the times I’ve fought with it to stop putting the wrong words in my mouth but now there may be hope.

According to the makers of Fleksy, a new keyboard app for IOS, it may be on its way out. Fleksy was originally designed for the blind and visually impaired and can literally unscramble a word no matter how badly it’s spelt wrong. If the word is used in the wrong sentence it will put the correct version in.

Thank you God. No more hours of editing and losing our eyesights. I just heard writers all over the word screaming with excitement.

He has an unhealthy interest in Doctor Who, classic TV and Star Wars, he also hangs around with the Emerald Garrison far toooo much. Is it any wonder he fits in at FTN so well? Find Owen at the
