I love this app !

I love this app and I use it all the time the only problem I have is I lose gif sometimes. It looks like it is trying to download some I saved at the very beginning but never loads. Not sure what some of them are but a few I have redone loaded. I have several categorized packs that use to have gifs in them but now they are empty. I truly believe it is worth 5 stars since I use it multiple times a day I do wish these small insignificant issues could be fixed but in the big scheme of life this is the really really small stuff :) I thought I hit send forever ago but apparently this review was in save mode :/ SOOOO UPDATE!!! still Love this app and having the keyboard... I do not create or save many things under my profile but I do think it is pretty cool I created one where I put my own text and it has been shared a ridiculous-amount of times. Likes, uses or saves ... I guess I am kinda Cool on some level 😂

It’s the go to

Works well as a primary choice for gifs on my iPhone. There one thing I wish you all would make happen? When typing out what you want to search for, there’s no way to spell check/auto correct to spell the word correctly.

So my fix is, is to just type out whatever word in the text box of the message, find the correct spelling and then use that to type correctly in to the search bar of Tenor. Also you can’t copy or paste that word from the message into the search bar of Tenor either.

That’s what I’ve found to work, there’s some steps involved where there shouldn’t be it’s just a waste of time..but oh well what can you do…..

I love Tenor but I don’t love being “forced” to give permissions

I installed the Tenor app b/c I use it in desktop a lot. It was great at first—Easy to install and setup, easy to use in texts, etc. But now any app that allows any form of messaging has a giant banner that says something about enabling full access, instead of just access to my Messages app. According to Apple forums, there’s no way to get rid of the banner (and it’s super easy to accidentally click it and have to back out and go back to what you were doing due to all the real estate it takes up on the screen) unless you give those permissions. Tenor says it’s “not as scary as it sounds,” but when you’re someone who uses privacy apps like Signal, you don’t want to give 3rd parties ability to read all of your typing! So I deleted it. Gave it 3 stars b/c it’s very fun and functional, but not enough to be willing to be coerced into doing something I’m not comfortable with. I will definitely redownload if they rectify this in the future.
