    Ever wanted to add words to your user dictionary in batch so you don't need to add them manually one by one?

    Now you can!

    I just created a project called UserDictionaryUpdater which takes a file called CustomDictionary.txt in your sdcard root and adds all the words from it to your user dictionary.

    This is great for people like me who doesn't have language support in Motorola Milestone and don't want to add words one by one.

    Please, check it out here:

    Your feedback is very welcome!

    Thanks!

    Cool idea. I know a number of people - myself included - have looked for an app to allow editing the custom dictionary. How cool would it be if you could incorporate that into your app :) Total dictionary control....would be nice. Thanks for making this app.

    Yes, it is very nice.

    Unfortunately, there is no android api to remove words or edit them. There is only a method to add them to dictionary. :(

    It would be nice to be able to remove or edit them, though.

    Actually, this tool could be used as a work around for when you need to "reset" the user dictionary because it is full of mistakes. As long as you maintained a list of custom words you want in the dictionary, you could periodically delete all the custom entries & then reload from your own custom dictionary file. I may have to give this a try!

    Yes. Unfortunately, I couldn't find a way to remove all the entries in the user dictionary. Just one by one. If you find something, please let me know.

    I believe you go into manage applications > touch input > then choose "clear data"

    Ooops, I forgot I was in the Apps forum, not the Eris forum :) I'm not sure how to do it on anything other than an Eris, sorry.

    I think I know why....

    I put android 2.0 as minimal android support. I'll change it to use 1.5 as minimal.

    Thanks for feedback!

    UPDATE: Done. Already uploaded version 1.2 which uses 1.6 as min android version.

    I couldn't recompile the project under 1.5.

    I think I'm using some UI element which isn't supported on 1.5.

    I'll check if I can make some changes to recompile it under 1.5

    How it works?

    Create in the root of your sdcard a file called CustomDictionary.txt. In it, write one word per line which you want to be added to your User Dictionary. When you press the button "Load Dictionary" it will load your words. That's it! Pretty easy, huh? :)

    I have a Motorola Milestone. I just went to:
    Settings> Language & Keyboard> User Dictionary
    ...and I was able to add any words I wanted to. So handy when you text a lot!! I can also click on any word to edit or delete it!
    Hope this helped~! ;)
