You know what happens when you type anything on a mobile device, it corrects your spelling to something you didn't want. But you don't realize it until you've sent the message, and then it's too late, the damage is done. Hopefully everyone gets a good laugh, but it isn't very useful.
- On Twitter the hash-tag #dyac generates a lot of posts from frustrated users
- The web site http://www.damnyouautocorrect.com/ has almost 6000 screenshots of auto correct not working (one of them visible in the image below)
Microsoft Word 2010 spelling work very well. OneNote Web App and Google Docs also spells very well, to my knowledge. Is it a great idea that failed on implementation? Is the local memory of the phone too small? I don’t know, but I do want to know:
Why does mobile phone auto correct fail?
