We’ve all been there before. You type something in an SMS text message and the autocorrect feature on the iPhone changes it. The feature often works well for misspellings. When it makes an incorrect autocorrection, it can at times create for a funny text. Now there is a website dedicated to sharing those autocorrect errors. Damn You Autocorrect allows users to share their most embarrassing and funny autocorrect errors. The site requires you fill out a few lines of information along with a screenshot of the text. While there is some hysterical content, some of it is NSFW, so use caution when visiting.
Despite the often incorrect autocorrect guesses, it is a feature that most of us rely on. It can easily be disabled in settings, should you find it getting more wrong than right. You can make changes by visiting Settings > General > Keyboard and turning off ‘Auto-correction’. I’ve seen many frustrated iPhone users that find humor when trying to use foul language in a text. It’s almost as if the iPhone is trying to soften the impact of a text.
What’s been your most embarrassing or humorous iPhone autocorrect fails story? This is a great idea for a website and certainly worth checking out.
