User Manager Dictionary (UDM)

Description

User Dictionary Manager (UDM) is an application that allows you to edit/export/import/delete/clean the user dictionary words found on your Android phone.

This special version also includes a built in list of approx 2000 most used words/expressions in Romanian and also other languages.

What is the user dictionary?

The user dictionary holds the list of words/expressions that assist you in writing SMSes, emails, etc. Your phone allows you to add/delete these words, but unfortunately only one by one.

With the help of the User Dictionary Manager application you can export your defined words and import them on another phone - for example, sharing with friends and collegues.

Install

Please read the Important! section below before downloading this application.

Install User Dictionary Manager (UDM) by using your Android phone to navigate to the market here Android Market (Phone) or here Android Market (Web)

Important!

This application does not work on some HTCs and custom ROMs!

It seems some HTCs and custom ROMs do not implement the standard Android framework. If you are experiencing problems and you are using an HTC then please just uninstall the application. Unfortunately, this is not a developer error, it's a firmware issue.
It totally depends on the HTC ROM.
If HTC will implement the standard Android in a future firmware, then this application will work.
Without a new firmware from HTC this application cannot work.

List of phones not to implement the standard Android dictionary, therefore list of phones that UDM usually does not work on:

Frequently asked questions/Troubleshooting

  1. How to import words from a TXT file?
    Simple.
    1. Create a wordlist.txt file
    2. Fill it with words - one per line
    3. Copy wordlist.txt to the root of the SD card of the Android phone
    4. Start the User Dictionary Manager (UDM) and in the Import Source screen, choose to import from the external TXT file.
    That is all.
    Click here to download a sample wordlist.txt file
    Click here to download a sample wordlist.txt file with UTF-8 BOM - use this file in case you have Russing, Spanish, etc character sets

    As of version 3.1, the User Dictionary Manager (UDM) supports UTF-8 encoding - for Russian, Chinese, etc character sets.
  2. Cannot import Russian, Chinese, Spanish, etc word. What to do?
    If you cannot import special characters for Spanish and other languages, please do the folowing:
    1. open your wordlist.txt using Notepad++. Do NOT use the simple MS Windows Notepad!!!
    2. cut the lines to the clipboard by pressing CTRL+A and then CTRL+X
    3. goto Format and choose Encode in UTF-8
    4. paste the lines from the clipboard by pressing CTRL+V
    5. save and close the file
    Copy the wordlist.txt file to the sdcard of the phone and you should be done.
    Please remember that your wordlist.txt file should contain at most 7000 words!!! Edit: see below question.
  3. How many words should the wordlist.txt contain?
    It has been noticed - by empiric testing - that more than 7000 words will probably kill your phone.
    Edit: some people have reported that importing 30000 words works fine on some newer Android phones.
  4. Where can I get word lists in my language?
    You can start by looking at OpenOffice dictionaries and other sources.
