For people who have to work using their phones or do other things, key prediction is a very important tool in going about thins.

So when composing emails or shooting off a rapid text, you'll need all the speed you can get. 

When the subject matter is long or there are long words, phrases, or titles that you use a lot, all you need to do is create a shortcut, so that your keyboard can automatically type them out in full for you.

Tada! And that's about it for what you need to do as regards shortcuts. Now whenever you type your shortcut the phrase will pop up above the keyboard, then you can select it. 

So with that now you can just have a whole lot more fun with your typing, whether it's for play or for work.
