iCorrect, an app idea created by three students at the Miami Ad School, would teach kids how to write properly as they text away

Has texting made your writing skills a little shaky? iCorrect—a concept that would only let you send iMessages with correct grammar and spelling—is hoping to change that.

The project's creators, Emily Berger, Michael Weisburd, and Heinrich Schnorf, who conceived of the concept during a class at the Miami Ad School, say they believe that text messaging should be harnessed as an opportunity to improve literacy and writing.

“The reality is, the real world doesn’t come with autocorrect, and iCorrect is an easy way to practice and better writing skills for people of all ages,” they tell PSFK.
