Ever received that odd text from your mom? Remember that one word that was changed and scarred you for life? Chances are she was victim of some sort of AutoCorrecting feature on her device creating the awkward conversation. Adaptxt is a solution that can help eliminate your mother’s frustrating AutoCorrects just in time for Mother’s Day.

Adaptxt for Android is an app that learns the typing style of your mother as she interacts with her apps, emails, and text messages. The app also touts a learning ability to help do a “smart” prediction of the next word which would help reduce errors. The app does this by using location-based suggestions like street names and landmarks, application-based suggestions for specific topics and writing style, and the ability to learn from your general writing style via Gmail, Facebook, and Twitter. Silent dictionary updates have also been included so that she won’t be left behind on the newest trending words. God knows Mother needs to spell “twerking” right.

In addition to the smart features, Adaptxt also comes bearing 93 languages, 44 industry-specific dictionaries including medicine, law, business, sports, and entertainment, tape and glide, 12 key layout, language-specific layouts (QWERTY, QWERTZ, AZERTY, etc.), and other customizations that put you in control and make typing easier on mobile devices.

One feature missing from the app would be the ability to recognize two (or more) languages at once. For people who frequently type in multiple languages, it can be annoying to switch between languages. Despite that one feature lacking this is a solid keyboard that promises to make it easier to type smarter by correctly predicting words based on your specific writing styles, location, and interests.

This is a paid app at the cost of $2.98, but for those of us that would like to test it out before your purchase, you can also grab a 30 day free trial. Both are available on the Google Play Store.
