Default iPhone autocorrect...gotta be apple screwing with people

My 14 yo convinced me to give up Android for iOS. Someone at Apple has to be laughing their asses off screwing with people. This autocorrect is just stupid. Android has this down heads and shoulders over Apple.
Any apps to fix this joke?

Don't feel bad. The new "improved" Android 5.1.1 has the same new improved autocorrect. It is freaking maddening. Every text has at least one "correction".
The IPhone could not possibly be any worse. This thread reminds me to go fool with the phone and see if I can disable the "help". Or, as my phone would say, "This thesus remembrance my two goal republican with my photoshop and sea if I cannon dismember the helicopter."

I use my iPhone note pad for writing down a customers information when they call while I'm not at home

Once I was trying to enter a customers last name and it kept autocorrecting to homosexual. The funny part was no way the guy I was talking to could be straight with that big a lisp. Almost had to hang up I started laughing so bad.

On Android, go to settings. Click "Language and Input" Click whatever keyboard you have as default under "keyboards and input methods". Under "smart typing" turn off "predictive text". You can just turn off "auto correction" which replaces your word with the "best" choice when you hit the space bar (like you do after EVERY word, dumbazzes! Duh, you couldn't use the ALT key???) if your phone has that option.

Never had a problem with iOS autocorrect — most of the time it's spot-on, and does a better job than the same function on Mac OS X.

My LG android phone has three word options down below and you can pick which one you want, which over rides auto correct. Can't you turn it off on iOS too?

My old cellphone did an auto correct and I didn't pay any attention to what it changed. I was sending an email to a previous boss named Lou Soltis. Auto correct changed Lou Soltis to Low Slots! I asked me if I was trying to insult him or something? I laughed so hard I almost puked.
