Iphone: typing (Dutch/English)

Posted on 2012-08-23
Last Modified: 2012-08-27

I already raised the question before but did not had a satisfying answer. Hope there is one now. I love my Iphone 4, but absolutely hate it that I can t type quickly on it. Auto suggesting words is a disaster and manually adding them, where should I find the time.

It s so easy on Android: type some letters and you choose a suggestion from a list. Swipe the keyboard etc.
I tried to use some tools for jailbroken Iphone but they don t work for dutch.

What time I loose typing letterr by letter and then correcting! I might even consider switching to Android just for the keyboard!
Please advise

    I suggest you to turn off Auto Correction and Spell Checking and type on your own. Also wait for Apple or Cydia to provide a satisfying solution.

    Hi There!
    I didn't see a question but-

    Apple pretty much has their stuff on lockdown. I can't suggest you use something to break the Apple OS because thats considered breaking the licensing agreement and you could void warranty and monkeys could fly I think.

    However I can suggest this to you- THIS

    My buddy has that and loves it.

    Also I have used this in the past- THIS

    It does make the phone thicker but at least you can type on your own.

    You do have your iPhone set up for Dutch and English don't you?

    You do change your keyboard over to Dutch before you type in Dutch?

    You do change your keyboard over to English before you type in English?

    If you set up these things and you still do not like auto correct then you are not alone.  I actually don't dislike it but I am not a fan.

    To Berrn: thanks, but I look for software solution. Not every program tilts.

    Ok so if you have both keyboard set up and you hit that international symbol each time you change keyboards to the language you want to type, then the iPhone is ANNOYINGLY working as designed.

    I am not native German but type in German and I actually like the auto correct as it helps me to spell words :-).
