Create your own poetry with auto complete in Windows Phone

Something's in the air. Well it has to be if I were to send what's written in the above image to someone from my People Hub. "I believe it will take you home now babe and cuddle me in Central Europe with their respective constitutional amendments." It's the foundations of a real piece of art, I tell you.

Phone poetry, that's what I'm getting at here. Phoesy as it's referred as on the website ( is the creation of poetry through nothing more than auto suggested words on a mobile phone. But why, you ask?

It's a good laugh and surprisingly fun to see just how quickly a humorous (or creative) poem can be crafted, relying on the auto suggestions on a Windows Phone. The idea with Phoesy is to start with a word (or topic) and after that you're then restricted to selecting words provided by the system to create meaningful sentences. So again, you ask why?

"The idea behind Phoesy is to express yourself in a relevant way by using the limited amount of options given to you by your smartphone. The auto suggested words are a combination of your vocabulary used when communicating with others, as well as preset suggestions created by your phones software."

Here's one published on the Phoesy website:

Phoesy Example

It's unpredictable, yet the system is tailored to how you use the keyboard to communicate with contacts. This can help add that personal touch when creating magic. If you still have one eyebrow raised, check out this neat video on how to go about this - and it's on a Windows Phone, which is an added bonus. There's no excuse not to give it a go (and who's to say many of you haven't already done so?)

What's more is if you tweet the Phoesy team (@phonepoetry) your work, they may add it to the website. Be sure to let us know some gems you've created in the comments.

Thanks, WindowsPhoneGuy, for the tip!
