‘Sue me’ is entered as ‘sure me’.
‘Ondo’ is entered as ‘info’.
Welcome to the silly world of typing on a touchscreen. It does not matter whether you use the standard onscreen keyboard or Swype or some other type. You will not escape those comical transformations of what you wish to say into what the auto-correction software thinks you want to say.
Going through many comments here on Mobility blog, I see those errors forced on users by their touchscreen device’s auto-correction software, and they are absolutely hilarious.
But the world has gone touchscreen crazy, and so we must live with the trend till mobile auto-correct software get better at interpreting what we intend to say – or till we invent a better text input medium.
Happy touchscreen typing!
