Auto-complete SMS abbreviations & auto-capitalize?
Hey there. I'm thinking about getting the iPhone4, but there are a few things I would miss about my current phone (Palm Pre). So I'm trying to see if there are apps to fill in the blanks.
One of the things I'm looking for is an app that auto-completes SMS abbreviations. For example, if I type "u", it automatically becomes "you". Or if I type "r", it automatically becomes "are".
Also, is there an app that auto-capitalizes words? For example, if I type "i", it automatically becomes "I".

probably but not any that are super popular and most people would rather deal then dig through a bajillion apps to find a unique feature like that
sorry mate you'd probably be better off writing your own app
and you can't really send a text from an app... at least it wont look like its coming through your phone (your # wont show up)
so the best you could hope for is some app that allow you to type all that out then copy and paste it into the messages app
Oh ok, thanks. I can't write apps. Haha. I'm not that technologically advanced.
I have a Palm Pre right now, and there are things called patches that we can put on our phone (they are user-made, and you install them in developer mode). They allow all sorts of things like this. I thought maybe iPhone had an app for it.
Thanks for the replies!

I know this thread is two years old, but in case you haven't found the answer on your own, you can customize text abbreviations via the "Shortcuts" feature under "Settings." Go to Settings > General > Keyboard > Add New Shortcut. This allows you to input abbreviations to words/ phrases you commonly use while texting. An example would be substituting "people" for "ppl." You type "ppl" in a text message and the phone automatically replaces it with "people." Pretty neat!
