I feel like I am missing something -
I have no spell checker that works in the background. What I am used to is Chrome on my PC that underlines misspelled words as I type them.
With my iPad and Safari I have to spot my spelling mistakes myself - can then touch the word and it will give me a correction suggestion.
I am getting worse as I get older with recognizing misspelled words. Plus I am constantly making mistakes because of my fat slow fingers on the on-screen touch keypad.
And no, I wonít use Chrome on IOS because of no ad blocker.
