Using Gboard on Android.

It is pretty smart as it suggests the correct word *despite* precisely having typed the wrong letter beside (I have large fingertips too)

I however disabled autocorrect, which happens to be otherwise the major source of "typos" for me (sending incorrect words thinking I made a mistake).

No experience on iPhone, so I can't compare, but I don't think there is much difference.

With Gboard, one option I like is the personal dictionary in which I can add custom shortcuts and phrases to speed up typing significantly. Does it exists with iPhone?
