Ratings and Reviews
Ok so it’s so close to being perfect but three things keep it from being perfect.
1. The app. The app is pretty good apart from the fact it doesn't go from vertical to horizontal. This creates an issue when using the keyboard themes. You can't turn it in its side so it doesn't show you what it looks like when the screen is horizontal. This means when using an image as the theme it's near impossible for you to work out if it will look the way you want it to.
2. Swapping keyboards. This is more of a nitpick but it's stupid how you can't instantly swap to say, Japanese keyboard, then back to Gboard. You instead have to go 'next keyboard' and then select the right keyboard if it's wrong.
3. This is the worst one by far though. The keyboard can't keep up with my fingers as well as the iOS keyboard can meaning when typing long things it often will skip a word space, full stop or letter. This is particularly bad in Google Docs. This makes Gboard UNUSABLE in Google Docs. This occasionally happens in other apps as well.
Other then that I love the GIFs, instant access to Google and the slide typing. Thank you
Better Than the IOS Keyboard
Overall I would recommend getting this app. After my current use of the app for about a month, there have been no times were I have wished I had the standard IOS Keyboard. There are no issues with the app itself or the Keyboard that stand out to me.
Being able the change the background image was the big draw in for me after seeing a friend use the app. The gifs, faces and drawings are commonly used by me and the slide typing is an effective way of speeding up my typing while using only one hand however I find it faster to type normally when able to use two hands. While typing in horizontal mode, the extra buttons made available like the move right and left buttons are a help as well.
In the end it's a good app and would recommend it to anyone. It dose what the standard keyboard dose plus a little bit extra here and there. Good job Google.
The perfect keyboard
I can type faster with this keyboard than I can on a PC or laptop with a full qwerty keyboard, and I'm a very fast Typer who can type without looking at the keys. I find the latest version of gboard lightning fast on iOS and in my opinion it's a must have for all iPhone users. I was using SwiftKey previously, although it's also a great keyboard, I find gboard to be both faster alijg with much better predictions and AI leavening like learning. I also love the integrated Google searching. I'm glad I decided to give gboard a try as now I can't even remotely imagine going back to the default Apple keyboard or any of the other aftermarket Swype type keyboards.. 11/10 - try it and I can guarantee you won't be disappointed
