    hi all

    i would love a new feature for smart keyboard, so that when it auto corrects a word, it alerts you - either by tone or vibrate

    anyone else keen on this ? trying to get interest to nudge the dev ;)

    erm....not sure how to set up a poll :/

    cheers
    dan

    I think this is a good idea, except that since I make a ton of mistakes I'd be vibrating or dinging off the hook! Although I do feel like the on screen notifications are lacking.

    I for one would like this feature if it'll come with another feature: don't auto correct - just put the suggestion and vibrate so I can click on the suggested correction if I want to. The vibration will help me realize there's a suggestion so I'll know to check it and decide.

    On the iPhone, you can actually turn on VOICE to READ the autocorrected word, which is great when alone and typing... less so when in public. A tone would be great. I really need auto-correct, but I hate it. I wish it was just a bit smarter, like IF I DELAY, don't auto-correct. I SEE THE RIGHT WORD, I pause, and it doesn't change it to something totally different. I've had the phone for 6 months and still can't get used to WATCHING it change all my words. I've had some bad bad posts get out.
