I'm pretty new from Android, just dumped my iOS device.

I find it pretty annoying with this feature missing that is auto correction and auto-complete.

In iOS whenever you misspell a word or type a keyboard key near the desired one, the system will automatically change it to the correct word unless demanded otherwise.

Also the auto complete contains hell of a bigger dictionary.

Do you know of a similar app/setting in Android? It takes me much more time to type in my Android.

Stock keyboard (as well as most 3rd-party keyboard apps) has both auto-correct and auto-completion (a.k.a. "suggestions") built in. Access the keyboard settings via Settings -> Language & input -> Android keyboard. From there you can enable and fine-tune the auto correction and suggestion options.

    Try different 3rd-party keyboard replacement apps from Android Market... I mean Google Play Store ;) Some have better auto-correction and suggestion features than others.
