I can't be the only one. I think auto correct owes me about 50 lingots! What about you?

Autocorrect has taught me the value of self-review before hitting send.

My fat fingers have cost me lingots though!

If you're using your phone you can install a Spanish keyboard, then switch to it while you are doing lessons. That's what I do. If you have an iPhone I actually switched the language to Spanish. This gives me practice with technical terms, and also allows me to easily switch back and forth between an English and Spanish Keyboard. You can install the Spanish keyboard without switching your whole phone over to Spanish. Then you can easily switch back and forth.

I do that, too. Sometimes it feels like I'm cheating because I know the word, but I can't seem to spell it correctly, or I can't remember it-but I know it!

It's less of a hassle to type special characters, though.

I had not been practicing for quite some time, so I just thought they must have changed their policy and were no longer giving out lingots! :D

Me too when using my IPad.! I added a Spanish keyboard option to it ages ago. Some relatively new programming at Duolingo has resulted in a situation where, when you translate a Spanish sentence to English, autocorrect changes the English to the most likely Spanish word. If you're a fast typist (like me), you don't catch it until AFTER you hit the "submit" button. I have sent an e-mail to support Re: this situation Jan. 13, 2015, but haven't heard back from them. I don't have the same problem on my MacBook, though, maybe because I haven't added a Spanish keyboard option, so that's some consolation.
