Can I add to the dictionary?
Can I add to the dictionary within the app?
As of version 2.0, the autocorrect functionality will “learn” to suggest new words that you use that aren’t in its dictionary. NOTE: you must use the “Normal” (highest) Autocorrect Level setting to enable this.
The ability to remove is not added yet. It makes some sense, but let’s see how strong of a need it is in our implementation.

It seems that capitalized words were not being picked up for swipe suggestions. This will be fixed in the next release (3.3.1 or 3.4). Also to avoid cluttering the dictionary with one-off items, PadKeys is more selective about when it adds words to the dictionary. So it may take a few uses in different contexts to cause a new word to get added.
I have set autocorrect to Normal. But new words cannot be added to the dictionary. This very useful feature is available in Gboard. I will have to switch to Gboard for iPad even though its keyboard is not as versatile as PadKeys.
There are many words currently not in the dictionary. It will help the user if the user can add custom words (like user name, proper names et.) to the dictionary.

Once this functionality is in place, I want the ability to delete from the dictionary as well. I can't tell you how much of a pain it is on the standard keyboard when words likr “StrStrength” end up in the dictionary and I have no way to remove them.
