The webOS Wish List: Predictive Text

As the owner of a TouchPad, Pre3, and iPhone, I can tell you there's one thing that's needed in spades with a virtual keyboard over the hardware variety: strong and aggressive autocorrect. There are things that both the iPhone and webOS do right, and things they do wrong. For instance, I like that webOS gives me a little chirp when it corrects something so I know to look back and see what it was, and I love that if I don't like it, undoing the autocorrection is as easy as a backspace. The iPhone, however, excels at predicting what it is I'm trying to type, and gives me the option to just hit the space key to use that word. It's a time saver, and its necessary given the inherent drop in accuracy that comes with a virtual keyboard.

webOS, through all its iterations, has never had the joy of predictive text. Well, that's not entirely true - when we looked at the Beta 1 emulator for webOS 3.0, text prediction was present, although in rudimentary and buggy form. The bones for the feature exist in webOS, and using the same sort of interface as the copy/paste/you-spelled-something-weirdly dialogs would enable even faster typing on the TouchPad's already excellent virtual keyboard. And let's not forget about the webOS smartphones - physical keyboard typing is fast enough as it is (at least in our practiced agile hands), imagine how much faster it could be if the phone was correctly guessing what you were trying to write.

Have your own thoughts on this webOS Wish List entry? Of course you do - the comments await. Without a doubt you have your own ideas as to what ought be on the webOS wish list, and so we've created a forum thread just for that - and an awesome discussion it has proven to be.

    • Question: WebOS 4 + HBBTV MHEG 2019 FAIL

      Hi All Has anyone with a 2019 model Webos 4.5 or above got any of the Freeview IPTV channels working eg. 211,  261,  265 etc. I am trying to workout if this really is a problem affecting every TV made by LG in 2019 or just a few of us. If it is every LG tv then why are there so few people highlighting and reporting this, If it is just a few of us the maybe is is a set or batch problem. I just struggle to understand why LG would remove functionality from a tv that has more pro

    • Question: WebOS update and 49SM8600

      Hi All, Has anyone had a recent update of the OS on their TV to 4.7.050204 (goldilocks2-gulaga) ? The reason I ask is that the IPTV channels on my TV seem to have borked these channels as I now get "Invalid Service" floating across the screen. I'm pretty sure these channels worked before the update. I'm referring to channels such as Now 90's, Planect Knowledge, The Sports Channel Network etc. So these are NOT APPS but TV Channels showing up on the guide and still show the prog

    • Disney Plus on LG webOS TVs

      I was reading a few articles on the launch of Disney Plus but they did not list any of the tvs such as LG webos or samsung tv.
