Ah Autocorrect! If you have been using the autocorrect function on your smartphone then you have likely experienced sending an auto-corrected text message that either caused great laughter or unbearable awkward moments. When it comes to autocorrect, users have very polarized opinion but this app looks to convert the haters to switch back the autocorrect function on.
When it comes to a smarthphone auto correct feature, many people seem to think that the Microsoft's Windows Phone 7 and Apple's iOS does it best. But despite of that, the iOS seems to still have problems with autocorrecting unique words and other proper nouns. And the result could either be downright embarrassing or hilarious or both. In fact, the default auto correct is so flawed that it spawned a website dedicated to awkward and hilarious text messages.
Fortunately, there is now an iOS app that looks to improve your device's auto correct function. For those who wants to say goodbye to awkward text messages and annoying typos, AutoCorrector, developed by Matt Tuzzolo, just might be the answer to your text messaging woes. Here's a description from the app's official page:
AutoCorrector allows you to prevent your phone from autocorrecting your favorite abbreviations, inside jokes, SMS shorthand, etc.
Add custom words to autocorrector to prevent your phone from suggesting alternatives. You can view the words you’ve added and add pre-configured word packs on the "view words" page.

The app basically enables you to add your own custom words to the dictionary so your phone won't auto correct it to something else. This includes abbreviations, inside jokes, slangs, SMS shorthand, nicknames and so on. You can do this by installing word packs or you can add words into it one by one.
