    creating text shortcuts in iOS 5

    Tired of typing out long words, names, and sentences and wondering how to create text shortcuts? Lucky you! One of the new features of iOS 5 is the ability to do just that. For example, instead of typing out "On my way!", you just type "omw" and the iPhone automatically changes the acronym to the full phrase. This phrase is actually the only shortcut that comes setup with iOS 5. To find out how to add your own, follow along!

    1. Launch Settings
    2. Tap General
    3. Tap Keyboard (towards the bottom)
    4. You will find a section called Shortcuts and a pre-created shortcut for omw.
    5. Tap Add New Shortcut...
    6. In the Phrase field, type in the entire phrase you'd like to create a shortcut for

    1. In the Shortcut field, type in the acronym you want to be replaced with the above phrase
    2. Tap Save
    3. To edit a shortcut, tap on it from the Keyboard menu.
    4. To delete a shortcut, tap Edit in the top right corner of the Keyboard menu

    There you go! Now you're all set to create you own shortcuts! They work exactly like autocorrect, so there's nothing special you need to do to use them. Just type the shortcut and you'll see a bubble pop up with the replacement phrase. Pressing space with allow the replacement, and tapping the bubble will cancel the replacement.
