    Does anyone know if there is a way to make an iPad/iPhone stop correcting or capitalizing certain words? For instance, when texting or talking to my girlfriend on IM and I type "Hey hun, what are you up to?" It always capitalizes the word hun. This is a a minor annoyance, but an annoyance none the less. Anyone have any solutions?

    Yes, but all I see is either on or off. All Im wanting is to be able to somehow get the iPad to never correct certain words I type.

    I have found that when i write something and it autocorrects, i then backspace and type it again the way i wanted it... it then learns the word and the next time i don't have a problem with it. For instance it now knows that i liker to write yooooooooo and it offers it as an autocomplete.

    I just typed Yoat and it auto corrected it to Goat... i backspaced and typed Yoat again and it stayed.... I then typed yoa and it offered Yoat and an autocomplete!! i think this will fix your problem.

    Seems to for words, but not on not capitalizing certain words...it doesn't remember that I don't want them capitalized, the "hun" being the main one.

    call her something else besides hun? Honey? Baby? Babe? Seems like an easy fix.

    No, because that's not what I prefer.
