    When I am texting others, none of my words are being auto corrected. Is this a bug or does anyone know how to turn this feature on? I havent touched anything right out of the box.

    Just read in another thread it was turned off due to an apple law suit. I just installed swift key from the market. Miss the dedicated number row but the correction is working great

    I am seeing same issue on a newly bought Coby ICS tablet. Are the thirdy party keyboards safe enough?

    Yes it does. It was the first app I installed on my S4. Necessary for anyone coming from an iphone imo.

    SwiftKey is what made my switch from apple this past fall smooth. It learns as you type so the more you use it the better it gets. I cannot stand the stock Samsung keyboard. I have even learned to love the swipe feature on SwiftKey

    Swiftkey is good, although I prefer the stock android keyboard from ICS and higher.

    $3.99.

    A little pricey, but completely worth it for anyone that relies on autocorrections. It also is pretty convenient for those who use the swype texting.

    You can use the trial version and decide if you want to purchase it first. That's what I did. I would buy it again if I had to

    That's a different keyboard, Swype. My personal opinion is that Swype is the best, so I'm not going to talk you out of it. (SwiftKey now supports swipe-based input, as well, but they aren't nearly as good about it yet.)

    There's also the normal Android keyboard which I really like. It's available for free. (I haven't actually tried the keyboard I linked to, just that of stock Android. They should be the same.)

    Some people swear by SwiftKey but it simply makes me appreciate Swype even more when I'm using it. (Especially if you watch the dozen or so demo videos showing all the little touches.)

    Whoops, I got them confused ! I'm liking Swype a lot though! I am instantly hooked, with all the themes and options, hopefully they make an emoji integration in the future

    It's pretty ridiculous the phone doesn't have autocorrect. I have read it's due to the Apple lawsuits. Regardless, swiftkey is very good, it just sucks you have to pay for a function that should be there stock.

    Helpful tip: change the long press time to 200ms or so. Makes typing so much faster, and virtually eliminates having to go to symbol mode.

    I thought I read somewhere that the s4 was going to come stock with SwiftKey. SwiftKey is more than just autocorrect. It takes some time for it to learn how you type but once it does (link it to twitter gmail etc) it almost seems like it is reading your mind. .
