    No matter how hard I try not to, I almost always type "tge" instead of "the".
    Can anyone please tell me if there's a way to tell my phone to type "the" every time I type "tge" ?
    Thanks so much for your help.

    @Dannydet could you share a step-by-step with the default keyboard on your device?

    If you finish words by tapping word suggestions (like I do with SwiftKey) your keyboard may have saved tge as a favourite shorthand word / acronym. If so you can long press on tge to remove it.

    I have the same problem.
    No real soltion, other than to try other keyboards until you find one rhat results in the least mistakes.

    I have a few that I like, but they are no frills keyboards.

    One that I continue to experiment with is called Floris Board.
    It is in active development, and you can resize the keys to make them easier to use.

    My best one so far has been Simple Keyboard.

    Others that I like are Hacker's Keyboard, Tiny Keyboard, and BeHe Keyboard.

    All of these are available on F-Droid.





    Tiny keyboard requires that you to add a repository to the F-Droid app to get it. (Not a big deal, if you have the F-Droid app. Plus, there are a ton of other cool apps in there as well).
    You may be able to just get it directly from GitHub.

    Go to where it says 'releases', tap that, then tap 'apk-releases'.
