    Today, I was typing out a text message: "Okay, sounds good." When I was typing, I accidentally typed "food" instead of "good." I've made this typo before in iOS4, but it just kept "food." iOS5 corrected it to "good." I did a quick search and didn't find anything about this, but is iOS5's auto correct "smarter"?

    I hope so, but websites like www.damnyouautocorrect.com will not get any new content.

    I've been screwing up a bit more in iOS 5 for whatever reason.

    For me, every time I type "ate" it corrects it to "are." "No, I'm not hungry, I just are a burrito..." I've typed it slowly and correctly many times and it always 'corrects' it to "are" unless the first letter is capitalized. I swear it makes far worse guesses than iOS4 when typing fast. It shouldn't fix real words ever. I think damnyouautocorrect.com will live on for a long while.

    Lately whenever I type the word "me" my iPhone cleverly either corrects it to mr or ms. That doesn't really sit well with mr - makes ms rather mad.

    I've also found iOS5's autocorrect to be much, much smarter. I can just flap away at the keyboard with my thumbs and it almost always comes out right ever since upgrading to iOS5. It seems like it's using logic to determine what the next word should be along with the keys you've pressed.

    not so smart or too smart ==

    I typed kekeke at the end of the sentence and pressed sent button and I found out, kekeke was automatically corrected into "jerker" -_-

    i dont know if this is true but i heard ios5 allows spelling check to be enabled without autocorrect.

    if thats the case thats all i need. there are times when im writing an email when I need my spelling to be correct and when im texting when I dont care. please iphone STOP CHANGING me to mr
