    Hi,

    There are a few words that come up as suggestions and it's really annoying clicking the X over and over again. It doesn't seem to remember that I don't ever want these words.

    Has anyone found an app or tweak that allows you to edit/remove suggestions?

    The option to on/off is in Settings.

    You can't go specific, too many words. There also no app for that jailbroken or legal.

    Only the on/off switch Apple gives you.

    Which is exactly why I asked "Has anyone found an app or tweak"...

    I've never heard of one. But feasibly someone could parse the file. I'm not sure if this is put in the kb cache or another file. If it's the kb cache, I would be halfway there to writing an app. :)

    There's a way to reset the dictionary and remove all custom words entered by mistake at
    Setttings > General > Reset > Reset Keyboard Dictionary

    If only it would work!!! I use international keyboards and there's a 'Tê' popping up every time I try to enter 'te'. It's so irritating!!!

    I don't know if it's a bug only with the international keyboard, I haven't tried to do it yet with the English keyboard. I won't test it, I am scared of enterring a fake word and then never being able to remove it again.
