Android: Google's smart keyboard does its best to learn the way you type, but it occasionally gets it wrong. In the latest version, you can now easily remove words from your user dictionary with a simple long-press and drag. This new feature was slipped into Google Keyboard 5.0 alongside several other bigger features like one-handed mode and improvements to gesture typing.
