Hi folks,

This is a little module that started out as a PoC but turned into something that I find useful. I use swiping on the Google Keyboard and found that sometimes it would detect words or offer suggestions that I would never type. I had previously used Swype and so not being able to remove suggested words drove me crazy.

This Xposed module adds blacklisting to the Google Keyboard.

Features:

  • Long-press on suggested words from the keyboard interface
  • Add words to the blacklist through the module itself

The project is open source, you can view it on GitHub.

I'd prefer bugs/feature requests to go into the GitHub tracker, but if all else fails you can get in touch with me through XDA for support/bugs/feature requests.

There's also a Reddit thread if you're into that.

Can you explain the problems you're having a little more detailed? When you long-press, you should get a Toast message saying that the word was added. Are you seeing that?

It currently doesn't delete the word that was entered though. Is that what you mean?

What phone/ROM are you on?

Wait a minute... this is suposed to work with N4 only? I tought it was working but i dont think so. all words i black-listed still showing in my suggestions. My way of black-listing was adding through the app itself.

I dont see any toast message when i long-press a suggested word.

Im running Omnirom 4.3 in my S-Advance.

It should work with other phones and Roms, but hooking methods by name and signature is iffy. It could be that a particular ROM has changed the package or class name. It's hard to say.

At this point, I personally have only tried on vanilla 4.4 on a Nexus 4, but I know at least one person has it working fine on Note 2 or 3.

I'll have to add some error handling logic, in the case that something unexpected is encountered. I'll log some bugs on the GitHub that you can track.

Can this work with the android keyboard, not the playstore Google one? At the moment i doesn't appear to work and I could do with removing these American spellings from my keyboard.

I have it working again with the latest Google Keyboard. I refactored the code some so in theory it should be a little easier to add support for other versions of the keyboards. I should have a new build up before Monday.

    I'd like to build in support for multiple keyboards soon. I am working now to fix it for the Google Keyboard first, then I'll look at the Android one.
