Sick of autocorrect changing your bespoke business terms to nonsense? Set up text short-cuts

There’s a time and place for autocorrect but not when it second guesses what you mean and constantly gets it wrong, that’s when text shortcuts could be your saviour. This may be particularly useful if you work for a company with an unusual name or use in-house abbreviations that aren’t in the dictionary.

iPhone: Go to Settings > General > Keyboard > Add new shortcut

Android: Go to Settings > Keyboard and input > Personal dictionary

Windows Phone: Go to Settings > Keyboard > Typing Settings

NB: If you’re using a custom keyboard like Swype, you’ll need to add your shortcuts to the app’s dictionary.
