    Hi I've downloaded the Swiftkey Keyboard and like it a lot but am a bit frustrated by the autocomplete concept they use. I guess there should be two options: autocorrect spelling mistakes I make and another option for autocompleting words I am trying to type. Too often I find that Swiftkey's "predicted" word option based on what I type is so far off that I end up sending a nonsensical message to people. Am I missing something here?

    That's precisely why I stopped using it, it was driving me crazy. There's no graceful way to get rid of a bad word/spelling, very frustrating.

    So is there a keyboard (other than Swype) that is pretty good as far as correcting spelling mistakes on the fly?

    I really like Smart Keyboard Pro for spelling corrections. It has multitouch and autotext like BlackBerry has. I really liked SwiftKey but I keep coming back to Smart Keyboard.
