    Anybody else noticed the amount of typos on this forum massively going up since the launch of BB10? Myself included lol, many times I have to go back to correct my posts.

    I agree, as I became more active in the forums the more self conscious I felt about my grammar. I found myself editing many of my posts.
    i'm glad to be back on a physic keyboard.

    I do have to say, I came to this thread thinking the OP was asking how many members planned on using a Typo keyboard...

    Part of the increase could be due to BB10's auto correct. Personally I think it is just being in too much of a hurry and not reviewing what's been typed before sending. I'm seeing the same thing in other forums from people using a PC and full keyboard.

    Well I think a lot of it has to do with the fact that the CB10 app is really good in general, which makes people more inclined to use it. They use the Forums through the app on their BB10 phone, whereas before, they may have done most of their forum posting on a computer.

    If more people are posting via CB10, then that raises the risk of an Auto Correct gone wrong on a Z10 or Z30, even on a Q5 or Q10 where the "Show Predictions" are on and someone hits the wrong one.

    I think it's more to do with CB members using Legacy physical keyboards in the past rather then computers.

    I was a big user of spell check on Legacy, after every post I would hit check spelling just in case.

    Honestly I haven't noticed an increase in typos. I do see a lack of proper grammar but that has always been the case lol.

    I was thinking the same thing. Btw...my answer would have been no.

    Regardless I have noticed quite a bit more errors....its a virtual keyboard thing. Given that...I'm glad I'm here and not on imore. I could only imagine the typos over there compared to Crackberry given IMO BlackBerry has the best virtual keyboard.

    ha!!! i thought you were going to suggest crackberry make typo keyboards,,, now THAT lawsuit would be just plain hilarious,,, but i do agree, lots of typographical errors,,, i think it can be attributed too people putting to much trust in predictive text settings & not checking before posting...
