Predictive text/autocorrect bugs

For some time now I've been experiencing annoying bugs in the keyboard's autocorrect behaviour.

The two main issues are that sometimes it will replace a word with the previous word I just typed (so I end up with two repeated words in a sentence), and that it insists on capitalising any word I have previously capitalised in what I'm currently writing. So if I start a sentence with a certain word, then use it again in the middle of another sentence, autocorrect will capitalise it every single time. I could understand it if these were infrequently used words, or words I have capitalised many times, as it might be reasonable to assume it is "supposed" to begin with a capital letter (e.g. a name), but it happens with words I very regularly type in lower case too.

Weirdly right now when I'm typing this I can't seem to force the repeated word issue to happen! But literally a few minutes ago when typing a Facebook comment I had both the repetition of a word *and* the unwanted capitalisation occur in the same comment!

If I type the word Weirdly, though, it autocapitalises as I just started the previous paragraph with it!

@Sqsh Hello, you have to go to Applications and look for the keyboard used. Click on the app and in Storage clear the app's cache. If the problem persists, also delete Data and, or reinstall the App.
