Language History of the Predictive Text Swearing

The impossibility to disable iPhone auto-correction for text input in unsupported languages is a royal, royal pain. It's like trying to swear every other word while the Predictive Text Swearing team is hard at work.

You can disable it. Kb auto correct on Cydia.

Only via Cydia, exactly. Why do I need to spend time "jailbreaking" my phone in order to be able to type in a market where it was officially launched?

Don't get me wrong, I'm madly in love with the iPhone and I still think it's the greatest piece of design in recent history, but still—not supporting the language nor offering a simple way to disable the auto-correction—what the fuck were they thinking?

Frühjahr Design Agency posted an iPhone autocorrection petition:

"Hi Steve Jobs. We now updated to the new iPhone Firmware 2.1 and it definitely made things go much smoother! But we all still miss one feature: We’d like to be able to disable the annoying autocorrection! At the time it is really not Apple-like. Please let your developers make a simple switch button to turn autocorrection off (they propably will do that in 20 seconds, right?). Thank you very much!"
