Best Keyboard Ever
First off! Gboard is like a smart phone for your keyboard! Right there in the keyboard while texting you can do a Google search, emoji search, and gif search. You can slide your finger on the space bar to move your cursor around to edit already typed text. You can tap and hold to type numbers without having to switch to the alt keyboard. You can personalize the background with premade themes/colors or you can make your own by choosing your own photo. I'm also loving the new customizing options! Changing the color of the swiping line, the buttons, the letters, even the sparkle option is cool! I hope they add more options for those! Seriously love this keyboard!! 💖💖💖💖
I do agree with another reviewer. The autocorrecting/predictive text isn't as accurate as it used to be. I mean I wouldn't even know how to spell a word but it's like Google could read my mind and knew exactly the word I meant. But now I have to go back and fix a lot more words than I used to and it's stuff that doesn't even make sense to the sentence. But I'm hoping some future updates will fix that because it really is the best keyboard!!
Overall pretty good
The utility of the keyboard is great, the autocorrect and suggestions work well most of the time. One thing I dislike about the keyboard is that the space bar's touch-zone is maybe too small. Every time I think I'm hitting the top of the spacebar, I'm actually touching the bottom of the "B" key. The keyboard's correction fixes this most of the time, but it is annoying. Another thing is that when using the microphone integration using the spacebar-hold, it almost always has to switch over to the Gboard app before it can activate the microphone. I understand that it's likely a limitation with Apple's keyboard integration, but it is definitely another thing that holds it back. Also, something that I noticed while typing this review is that while using the Gboard, the text box does not automatically scroll to keep the cursor above the keyboard while typing, so that’s another annoyance. I will say, though, that the swipe typing is probably the best I’ve seen as far as text recognition. However, swipe typing keeps it from doing one of the things I like most in the default keyboard, and that is if you hit the wrong key, you can move your finger over to the correct key, and it will register that instead.
Overall, it’s decent, but some of the minor issues really do keep me from using it most of the time. Sometimes, convenience is more important than utility.
Thought this was FANTASTIC news for iPhone owners
So when I found out Google made a keyboard for my iPhone I was so excited because Apple's keyboard is terrible....but now into my 3rd day after installing it and I'm so irritated with it, I'm to the point of uninstalling! As I am trying to type this review, here and now, my cursor just starts freaking out and trying to keep just zooming back to the very beginning of my message and no matter how many times I try to move the cursor back to where it should be, it just keeps trying to rewind to the beginning like it has a crazy, possessed mind of it's own! It also just randomly adds words, deletes words, and it even started typing one text message COMPLETELY BACKWARDS!!!!! (Not to mention the crazy auto correct nonsense going on--I typed "mind" correctly just now only to have it auto "corrected" to "kind", then "I typed" was changed to "ill tempted" and "not to" (as in not to mention) was changed to motto and mention was changed to MEMTION!!! Come on Google, get it together... We know you can do better than this! My messages and texts, instead of being easier and quicker to be able to type and send, are taking me 3x as long because I'm having to fight it to say what I want it to say and do what I'm trying to do!!! It's HORRIBLE! The idea or the concept is great.... IF YOU WOULD JUST FIX THE BUGS!!!!
