I'm using my device to do code with Jside and I absolutely need to disable autocorrection. Is there a way to specify application that shall not use autocorrection ?

(Since I'm using swiftkey a lot I need it for texting etc..)

    You could probably do this with root and Tasker (detect which app has come into the foreground and turn auto-correct on/off accordingly), but no there is no built-in way to do this. – Matthew Read Mar 31 '16 at 17:54

There is no built-in way to do this, but you could probably do it with Tasker and root. You can create a trigger on application foreground/background to turn auto-correct on or off depending on which app it was. I am not sure of the specifics since I haven't used Tasker but hopefully you can figure it out. This Reddit comment is for a similar task (switching keyboards) and might be a good place to start.

AutomateIt might be able to do this as well.
