There is great concern that text communication is destroying the brains of young people — it removes the need for understanding and the utilization of correct spelling and grammar. While there is a certain hyperbole to such sentiments, it is true that tools such as predictive text are pretty unhelpful — enabling youngsters and grown ups alike to continue making the same mistakes over and over without ever learning why, or how to correct them. Now, iCorrect is an independently created, educational add-on for Apple’s iMessage, which highlights writing mistakes and forces the composer to correct them before the message can be sent.
