    Hello, I have been working on this issue. If you are wanting to disable the Textfield auto correct in Android with Titanium then there is a property called [autocorrect](http://docs.appcelerator.com/titanium/latest/#!/api/Titanium.UI.TextField-property-autocorrect) in textfield. Which will enable or disable auto correction in Textfield input depending on "True" of "False" value set to it. Now, if you are asking about to disable the suggestion displaying over the android keyboard. Then you have to do it manually on your phone "Language and input settings".On android there can be multiple keyboards so verify the one you are using. Here set the "show Correction Suggestion" to "Always Hide" to disable the suggestion displaying over the Android keyboard. Also follow these links for details. [Link 1](http://stackoverflow.com/questions/28063774/how-to-hide-quick-suggestions-on-keyboard-in-titanium-mobile-for-ios-and-android) [Link 2](https://developer.appcelerator.com/question/42611/disable-textfield-auto-correction) Hope this helps. Thanks.
