    Yes, me too even does it when it doesn't need to, also adds capitals for no apparent reason whatsoever.

    Ed a a a Carly.

    FYI that was supposed to say Exactly.

    Anyway, why does it capitalize Bigfoot? If it exists it cannot be singular and proper, biological reasons related to doin’ it. We don’t say Bird or Ostrich.

    One of my autocorrected posts was quoted today. Damm iPhone. It doesn't leave "looking" misspelled. It turns it into something totally unrelated to the topic or my intent. Anything autocorrected should be underlined in red until the text is accepted by clicking Post or Send or something else that indicates acceptance of the change.

    If it’s not just a typo because d and f are adjacent there’s an easy fix. If you create a contact named effing eff your phone will recognize and accept the eff word. Other stuff might be trickier to fix.

    I try to use swipe on my Android phone, but it requires a lot of correcting sometimes. I have to watch it when I text an elderly relative. "I hope you're doing well" often comes out as "I hope you're dying well." :eek:
