Since I installed iOS 8 on my iPhone 5s I’ve been experiencing a strange issue with the predictive keyboard/QuickType. Some words that the predictive keyboard suggested had a large gap at the beginning. Meaning my messages would send out looking something like this:

“The cat sat on the mat” …. This is not something I text a lot but used purely as an example.

I soon started to realise it was words that I had previously added to the dictionary. So I figure clearing the dictionary may fix it.. Which it did!

So if your experiencing issues with the predictive keyboard, then perhaps try deleting your iPhone keyboard dictionary. This isn’t the language dictionary this is purely your own custom words.

To do this, tap on Settings > General > Reset > Reset Keyboard Dictionary

You’ll them be prompted for your iPhone passcode, once entered the dictionary will be wiped.

Caveat: This will obviously mean you’ll have to build up your custom word dictionary again from scratch.. However it’s a small price to pay!



update availableApple have today announced the availability of the latest update for their popular mobile operating system iOS 8. This update (8.0.2) fixes several bugs introduced by the previous update (8.0.1) which was available for less than 24 hours. Apple found 8.0.1 to be causing issues with making and receiving calls and SMS messages, among other less show stopping bugs. Although the bugs only affected a small percentage of iOS 8’s user base Apple was quick to pull it from their production store and replace with 8.0.2

4x3 Pedometer

The 4×3 Motion Digital Pedometer is an utra slim digital pedometer that is small enough to slip into the smallest pocket, plus it is supplied with a lanyard that allows the user to wear it around his or her neck.

The manufacturers claim that it provides superior accuracy in any position using the worlds most advanced Tri-Axis Technology thanks to its built-in 3D  Tri-axis motion sensor which measures vertical, horizontal, and sideways movement.

The pedometer tracks the wearers distance travelled, their speed, and the number of calories burned. it will count up to one million steps, and has a useful 7 day memory option which re-sets itself at midnight every night so that each days activity is measured individually and totalled up at the end of the week. the display also offers a sports timer, a digital clock, and a calendar, all of which can be viewed at night thanks to the blue backlight. all of this is powered by a small lithium battery which is provided and is pre-installed in the pedometer, there is a clear plastic isolator strip protruding from behind the battery casing cover which pulls out to allow the battery to connect when you loosen the small retaining screw on the battery cover using the small pozi headed screwdriver that is thoughtfully supplied with the pedometer.
