    Settings/Language and input. Tap the Gear to the right of the Samsung keyboard. Now tap on My word list. Hit the + top right and add what you want.

    No.
    The stock messaging app learns the words you use on FB, Twitter and on GMail, something to do with one of the Apple law suits I believe. All ok if you use them but I don't :thinking: so I've set up a draft message on GMail and just keep adding to that.

    I don't use any social web sites either. So if I just create draft messages in g mail texxt will learn from that? Even if they arent sent?
