as has been stated by many, many users here, SureType does very well at predicting your words. the built-in dictionary is very expansive and the software does its job very well. doing its job better than other predictive text entry applications, SureType can actually track the frequency of your word acceptance and become more exact. aside from a handful of three letter words, there is little correction needed once the device learns your patterns.

the system can learn from you in as little as a week, but you must have an interest in learning from it, too.
I think you're misinterpreting NJBB's comment. SureType does a great job of figuring out what you meant to type after you've hammered out all of the letters. The original post and NJBB were referring to systems that: (1) predict what you intend to type before you've finished pressing all of the keys, and (2) allow you to select a predicted word(s) without having to type it all out. As good as SureType is (and I have no complaints), it does not "predict" any words that do not have the exact number of characters that you typed.
