    Hello, I've set up autocorrect, checked 'correct spelling automatically' in the Settings, and made sure I've checked 'check spelling while typing' in the apps I use. However, autocorrect still doesn't work, especially on facebook. Is there a way to force autocorrect to work universally? Thanks!
