My Droid can read a bot check. (in General)

Fishead March 2 2011 9:41 PM EST

So, I got a bot check "puke/men" while playing on my Droid. When went to save it, one of the options was to add "puke" to the dictionary. I've never noticed it before, and it hasn't happened with any of the bot checks I've had since, but that may be because the word is already in the dictionary. Anybody else notice this?

yep every once in a while my MotoDroid 2 does this too.

so it just wanted to add it because you typed it in or it asked before you typed it in?

Fishead March 2 2011 9:56 PM EST

It asked before I typed it in. I'm actually hoping for bot checks now.

hmm, my droid never asks to add words that i haven't typed in especially ones in an image.

as for wishing for them, i am sure your wish will be granted in this instance!

I get this if, for example, I typed "p" and I've typed puke before. It'll offer it as an autofill. You got this prompt before you typed even one letter in?

Fishead March 2 2011 10:53 PM EST

Didn't type one letter. I often save bot checks and out of habbit save first then type. Not for any particular reason, I just do it that way. I do find it interesting that "puke" isn't in the dictionary. I'll be checking all of my bots from now on.

Nothing like saving bot checks :D
Tug/Spa <- hilarious
gene/gene <- genius :)

how exactly do you save the image on the androids, i want to see if mine does this as well but haven't seen a way to save images.

Long press on the image.

I've gone through this now a couple of times testing.

The only time that dialog is brought up is with the word typed in.

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] March 3 2011 10:14 AM EST

i will keep testing it as well. i get the downloading image and then nothing. did it ask you to save puke to the dictionary as soon as it finished downloading then?

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] March 3 2011 10:19 AM EST

where exactly does it save the image to? ; )

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] March 3 2011 10:25 AM EST

found it, nm!

So, maybe three long work days in Portland doped up on Dayquil and caffeine made me do things differently and I typed the word in before trying to save the bot. I'm not 100% convinced I did that, but it's looking like that may be what happened. I'll keep trying to make it happen again. At least I finally got a good night's sleep in my own bed last night and I called in sick so I can enjoy the sunny rain free weather at home.

hehe, i am trying it as well so no big deal.

you have made me wonder what google goggles will bring up when presented with a bot check!
