    Has anyone on this forum actually tried this yet? Is it a pain or have any other problems with it?

    Just improve your typing! Predictive text was employed because of the typos that come naturally from using a virtual keyboard. If you're using a real keyboard, it's likely that you just can't type or spell. I actually don't like predictive text especially when I'm trying to use internet slang and it's filling in words I don't want (can be embarrassing).

    Improve my typing? I think you are missing the point. I (and many others) are looking for a way to improve and check spelling while using the physical keyboard...

    Your point doesn't make sense to me at all.

    In my eyes, you just proved his point. lol. You are looking for a spell check. He says improve your typing. (This includes spelling.) Get it? :D

    I understood what he meant. Yet his point was of absolutely no use and asinine, and therefore did not make sense. I am not asking to be tutored to become a better speller. My question, friend, was about the app. Not to get a smart-ass remark in return.

    :cool:

    Hmm.. you realize you were posting on the internet, right? Smart-ass remarks are almost par for the course. Nothing is ever meant by it... if the post isn't useful, just move on to the next one. :D

    Haha. Of course I know that. I just would rather not leave it there and have people see his lame answer, and finish with the thread right there. I would still like a serious response.

    Predictive text is the first thing I took off of my phone's virtual keyboard. To me, it slowed down typing with all of the optional words flashing across the screen. I can type, so not a biggie.

    It works really well, much better than the builtin keyboard, I'l be keeping it. The minor pixelation doesn't bug me a bit.
