Social media application award Smartphone dictionary .

Disclosed is a method of adding application awareness in smart phone dictionary to get the frequently used words.

These applications also provide feature to connect with these application using Smartphone virtual keyboard interface like composing emails, chatting window, etc. This keyboard interface manager (Dictionary) keeps the history of frequently used words and provides suggestion to user. These suggestions are primarily based on the frequency of usage of the word by user and independent of application installed on the system. This mechanism needs many initial user interactions to make the dictionary mature enough to give the word suggestions expected by user. Initial user interaction meant, keyboard suggestion mechanism takes time to give it correct suggestion as per user requirement. When user enters any word then the word count to that word is increased and as per that the Smartphone dictionary suggests the word for user next time.

There are existing mechanisms available to add contacts when new social media application is installed.

Social media applications like Gmail, Facebook usually needs heavy keyboard interaction. As usage of keyboard is more, dictionary suggestions are come into picture. As user started using the application, dictionary suggestions becomes more relevant. In other words, user needs to teach his Smartphone dictionary about the wordset while using the app. The Smartphone dictionary should be enough smart to collect the frequently used wordset from web servers of these socia...
