Glide Typing – Type faster by sliding your finger from letter to letter
Search and send anything from Google:
• Nearby shops and restaurants

• And anything else which you’d search for on Google
Gboard for iPhone and iPad supports the following languages:
• Portuguese (Brazil)
• Portuguese ( Portugal)
• Simplified Chinese
• Traditional Chinese (Taiwan)
• Traditional Chinese (Hong Kong)
We know the things that 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 that you can easily share. None of these queries is sent to Google.
• Bug fixes and performance improvements
Ratings and Reviews
Quite good but offers only a small number of languages
Ghosts is right now probably the best swipe keyboard for iOS.
While I don't use the finding part of the app particularly often, I'd appreciate more languages to be at use in the Gboard.
And I don't mean the list of languages. That is fine as Czech, English, Spanish, Italian, Russian and Arabic are there.
My problem is that you can, for some reason, use only 3 languages at once. I can have all my lenguages on iOS, but for some reason not on Gboard.
It's a pity, because other than that, Gboard is a very good app.
Terrible dictionary and keyboard layout
The keyboard for Czech is terrible. How can you even release this trash? Why does it not have the Czech specific letters as separate keys as is the case for German? Also the top row with back and fwd icons is a complete waste of space. But most importantly, the dictionary is a complete disaster - not only it does not predict well but also if you type a word, it is either not included despite being correct or it is changed to a completely different word and the closest word is either not offered or only as a second or third option. It does not learn based on words used either. It is a little better than the Ipad keyboard but still a huge disappointment!
Constant switching from iOS default keyboard
Keyboard itself is definitely much better than the one Apple choose to to use, but one constantly needs to switch to Google keyboard in every app even tho it's set as default - first position or the only keyboard there - and there are even apps, such as Gmail where iOS won't let you use Google keyboard. This I find ridiculous and therefore giving it 2 stars as Google is unable to come to an agreement on this. That is if they even know about this but I hope they do..
