Is there a custom dictionary in ios5? One where you don't have to enable an international keyboard?
Good question, I'd like to know as well.
It looks like it is
Here's what I have found:
There is a place where you can enter shortcuts for text to auto expand & it can function as a custom dictionary as far as spell check goes. In the beta Apple has "omw" as a shortcut for "oh my way", so when you type "omw" it auto expands it to "oh my way". You can put a word in without a shortcut and spell check ignores that word. One of my gripes of iOS is it will auto correct "hell" to "he'll" so I entered "hell" as a word without a shortcut and now iOS doesn't auto correct it or show it as misspelled.
Hope that is what you are talking about.
EDIT: Oh well, beaten to the punch.
Same problem here for years with the word hell.
Do they really think noone uses that word?
OMG that is an amazing feature! I'm coming from Android and prior to that a Blackberry; custom auto corrections is invaluable! This will go a long way in improving the typing experience on the iPhone. I can't wait.
