Tweak Your User Dictionary with User Dictionary Manager

 Most of us are familiar with the user dictionary on the stock Android keyboard. This feature allows the keyboard to learn your commonly used words, names, and so on—and it remembers their case as well. One long standing drawback is that every word had to be entered manually, one at a time—normally, the first time you write the word itself. This meant that unless you backed up the keyboard app’s data, every new ROM flash would wipe the list.

For those who have found the default interface for managing the user dictionary, it lacks any features beyond the ability to add or remove words from the list. And this is assuming you can even find the interface in the first place, as it’s hidden deep within system settings. Thanks to User Dictionary Manager by XDA Junior Member adrianvintu, those days are gone.

User Dictionary Manager has a simple interface, with features to import, export, delete, and even clean your personal dictionary, which rids your system of duplicate entries. You can now take your dictionary with you, regardless of Android version thanks to this handy app. The export feature lets you send your dictionary to a folder on your SD Card. And finally, these settings are available from your app drawer like any other app, rather than a more difficult to access settings pane.

Currently, most devices running Android versions up to ICS are supported. Unfortunately, due to framework issues, some HTC devices are not supported.

If you’re flashing addict, or are about to upgrade your device and have a personal dictionary worthy of Webster’s, you can visit the original thread to get your hands on this long overdue app.

What’s Next for Samsung and Its Flagships?

If we were to say that the Galaxy S6 was a leap of faith made by Samsung, we wouldn't be too wrong. After all, the device marked a definite change in how Samsung perceived the market and its own place in it, as it stood amongst the signs of decline which started with the critical reception of the Galaxy S5.
