Note: We do not log keystrokes or send them to our servers other than to search by key terms for the perfect GIF. If you have any other questions about full access please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Ratings and Reviews
Easy to use
It’s Free and Easy to use and quite useful when I am messaging my loved ones. Especially when I am in dire need of that right gif or motion sticker to express myself visually. The keyboard and it’s user interface are easy to use and it’s easily accessible directly from the message being created at the time. This app plays a pivotal role in daily messaging and social networking habits. My favorite feature used in the app is having the ability to generate a word search of the precise media your looking for, allowing you to organize and store content found into categorized folders and sub-folders for future use. Oh yeah best of all have I mentioned that the app is ENTIRELY FREE TO USE!
I love Tenor but I don’t love being “forced” to give permissions
I installed the Tenor app b/c I use it in desktop a lot. It was great at first—Easy to install and setup, easy to use in texts, etc. But now any app that allows any form of messaging has a giant banner that says something about enabling full access, instead of just access to my Messages app. According to Apple forums, there’s no way to get rid of the banner (and it’s super easy to accidentally click it and have to back out and go back to what you were doing due to all the real estate it takes up on the screen) unless you give those permissions. Tenor says it’s “not as scary as it sounds,” but when you’re someone who uses privacy apps like Signal, you don’t want to give 3rd parties ability to read all of your typing! So I deleted it. Gave it 3 stars b/c it’s very fun and functional, but not enough to be willing to be coerced into doing something I’m not comfortable with. I will definitely redownload if they rectify this in the future.
App is disorganized
1) there’s 3 different instances of the app. The keyboard top bar select, the actual selectable keyboard, and the app itself
2) all 3 instances are missing features from one another. So if there’s something you want to do or settings you want to change, good luck finding which instance to use...
3) stickers will only show up in their own distinctive category if you use the top bar select version, However you can’t use your account version. If you use the keyboard itself you can’t really tell what a sticker is from just another gif. If you use the app itself you can only manage your library but cannot search for stickers at all.
The app does what is advertised but it seems any effort to streamline or improve is absent. So overall annoying most of the time but if there could be any feature I’d like to see added would be the ability to view only stickers.
