Description

Gboard is a new keyboard from Google for your iPhone. It has all the things you would expect from a great keyboard — GIFs, emojis, and Glide Typing — plus Google Search built in. No more app switching; just search and send, right from your keyboard. Search and send anything from Google: • Nearby stores and restaurants • Videos and images • Weather forecasts • News and articles • Sports scores • And anything else you’d search on Google GIFs — Search GIFs for the best reaction Emoji Search — Find the perfect emoji, faster Glide Typing — Type faster by sliding your finger from letter to letter Privacy We know the things you type on your phone are personal, so we’ve designed Gboard to keep your private information private. What Gboard sends to Google: • Gboard sends your searches to Google’s web servers to give you search results. • Gboard also sends usage statistics to Google to let us know which features are used most often and to help us understand problems if the app crashes. • If you use Gboard’s microphone, voice input will be sent to Google for transcription. What Gboard doesn’t send to Google: • Other than your searches and voice inputs, Gboard doesn't send anything you type to Google, whether it’s a password or chat with a friend. • To help you with spelling and to predict searches you might be interested in, Gboard will store the words you type on your device. This data is not accessible by Google or by any apps, and can be cleared at any time. • If you’ve turned on contacts search in Gboard search settings, this allows Gboard to search the contacts on your device so you can easily share. None of these queries are sent to Google.

  • Best iOS glide typing

    Gboard is so much more efficient than the iOS default keyword. The autocorrect is terrific and the type inference is amazing. Apple should introduce a first party keyboard to compete with Gboard.
  • Highly inaccurate

    This keyboard never swipes what I want it too. The swipe predictions are what ruin it. Don't try to predict my next word. Just interpret my swipes instead.

    I love the keyboard, and have been using it despite the constant crashing and slowness (I'm talking EVERY time I try to use it). The gif and Google search functions are oddly very incomplete, but the rest of the features are great. Unfortunately, as my iPhone 6 continues to age and slow down, this keyboard is just getting more and more infuriating to try and use. This review will be the last thing I type with it.
  • Way too much extra junk

    I have an iPhone 6. Typing and auto predict are great. But it just too bogged down with a lot of extras that i have to wait about 10 seconds just type something. A lot of unnecessary junk. I I don't need to see the doodle of the day, I just want to type! there needs to be a toggle to just shut off gifs or search or sketch or doodle of the day. 4 extra things that I don't even use!! Come on...
  • Weird bugs to work out

    I needed something other than SwiftKey because of consistent repeated problems with SwiftKey. I figured Google would have their act together. Surprised that they don't. In general this keyboard works well enough for autocorrect and predictions, but that's about it. It has a major bug that bites me nearly every time I'm writing up sentences. It loses track of the text in the sentence and starts clobbering what you wrote. It doesn't seem to handle backspace well at all. If you start typing and then delete a few letters, it will often start autocorrect info and replace partial words or delete entire chunks from sentences you wrote earlier. It's truly bizarre and surprising from Google. Also, the UI isn't implemented properly. It hovers over the content instead of forcing the content up. Right now I can't see what I'm typing because my cursor has gone below the keyboard, and the text hasn't started scrolling to be visible. SwiftKey does that no problem. Overall very annoying to use. Hoping they improve in the future.
  • Dedicated voice typing button

    It should be on the keyboard layout at all times like Android and iOS keyboards. The long press on the space bar is not convenient or intuitive.
  • It was a five star app😢

    I use to give this app 5 stars but it has been so buggy since a few updates ago. I now have it crash constantly. Edit: newest update crashes even more on my iPhone 6.... Edit 2: I now have to restart my phone every so often otherwise the swipe feature gets the words wrong. Also when deleting words it will sometimes mess up words I wrote before the one I deleted. So the word I wanted to keep has to be fixed too. I also have it randomly type a single q when it feels frozen for a bit. What happened with iOS 11 and this app?
  • Predictive text makes me roll my eyes so hard

    Honestly the predictive text/autocorrect is infuriating. I find myself fixing every sentence because google thinks it knows English better than I do. If I do not proof read text before sending, it can really make you look like an idiot. The fact that it will change a word a few words behind based on what I am typing is insane and ruins so many sentences. I don't know. This board drives me crazy. Also the voice to text is annoying because it never listens long enough.
