    I can't be the only one annoyed by this:

    I do a lot of remote admin type stuff from my phone. This generally involves either a SSH app or RDP app. When in either one of these apps I don't want autocorrect to EVER be on as I'm typing commands and not normal English language words. It irritates the hell out of me to type a long one liner only to realize that all along the way the damn keyboard thought it knew better than me. Does anyone know about an app or a setting in Android that will allow you (much like location services permissions in iOS) to allow certain applications to opt out of keyboard auto-correct? If this isn't a feature it certainly should be.
