Almost perfect

Gboard is the iOS keyboard that Apple should aim to make theirs. It does everything that the stock keyboard does and then some. It has standard tap typing similar to the stock keyboard, it has voice dictation, and even swipe typing. It does all of these things really well. Recently they also added vibration feedback which is something Apple really should add to the stock keyboard. About the only thing which this keyboard could use some more additions to would be still better theme support. Currently they allow you to change and create a light keyboard theme. They don't allow you to create a dark mode theme however. With the iPhone X series devices especially it's important that the keyboard looks correct in both light and dark. Currently with custom themes though, you can really only use them in light environments with the keyboard looking proper. Otherwise Gboard is great, really doesn't have anything text prediction wise which still needs fixing.

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.

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!!
