Ratings and Reviews
❤️❤️❤️ love Gboard keyboard. It's my go -to keyboard. I have 14 different keyboards. I always find myself tapping the globe symbol and going back to Gboard! Developers should look towards more customizations to create your own keyboard. Most of the regular skins already in app are not really my style. I mostly create my own skins using cute photos or wallpapers. NEEDS: Fonts, more key colors , borders around keys are too transparent. Please add Special key effects. Totally worth it to download and use everyday! I absolutely love this keyboard app!!!! It's missing some things... Like long press on the second and third row keys should open the corresponding punctuation. I say this bcz in certain forms and sites the convenient period button disappears and you're left tapping back and forth between 123 and ABC. Wastes time and makes Swype typing awkward. Having said that this keyboard has the most accurate swipe type keyboard and predictive text suggestions!!!! Will rate 5 stars when some features suggested or others are added to this app. It's been more than six months from my last review. All perfect since the last update. The only thing I would like to see is the ability to customize our keyboards better. I love all my keyboard skins but I would love a way to.... add more personalization. Google is free AND awesome. Thank you to the developers who keep bringing the magic to third party keyboards in iOS 14.4!!!
Needs a set of instructions but otherwise great!
Maybe I'm just an aging millennial but I can't figure out where to find instructions of any kind for this keyboard.
Does every feature of the infinity video (assuming it's called that) need to be discovered by randomly tapping and swiping with multiple fingers at every possible context point?
Also, how does one search the sticker packs? I see some defaults were selected for me and I can choose new ones but scrolling through all the options is essentially impossible.
I've been using this keyboard for a year or so and there seems to be a lot of functionality hidden behind an interface that I can only assume is supposed to be intuitive to the point of not needing instructions. That's cool, but please make actual instructions available.
Finally, I would absolutely love copy/paste functionality thru the keyboard instead of the hit-or-miss screen tapping. I don't know if it's even possible to access selected text from the keyboard interface (I could see ios restricting that) or maybe it's already available and I just haven't stumbled upon the magical tap/swipe/pray combination yet. Please let me know. Mostly great work!
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.
