    We have all been in situations where we want to type something into that IM messenger and thanks to the built in dictionary (auto correct), the word changes to something else. Say for example, if you want to type fu*k into Beejive, it is changed to duck. Here is a small tip that will help you add custom words to your iphone built in dictionary and auto correction will not be a pain anymore. Infact it will be more of useful.

    1. Open Safari in iPhone, and open a new browser (very important!)
    2. Now tap the Google search field and start typing the word you want to add to the dictionary.
    3. Now you can close Safari and open your Notes app and type “fu*k”.
    4. No more “duck”! Your iPhone now knows the best word in the world

    Or you can do the better option -> Turn 'auto correction' OFF

    I agree with Moneyboi, its silly to make this "hack" every time you want to add a word in you iPhone's dictyonary

    This hack could come in handy since I actually tried cutting the auto-correction off. I cut it back on since I make a lot of mistakes typing on the keyboard and auto-correct comes in handy.

    I actually still use auto-correction. It's not THAT annoying, and usually it helps with my sloppy typing. And I never knew this hack, but I knew it was possible to add words into your dictionary (I've done it on accident actually, I can say "hell" whenever I want now!).

    Yay. Auto correct off is much easier but this will help some people.
