The easiest to search gifs!

Way much better than stickers since this pulls up as a keyboard so I can use it with any app (not just iMessages). I have honestly used this app constantly for years now and I love it. There’s just a couple of nitpicks that would improve it: - a frequently used section or recents section would be incredibly helpful - I would appreciate being able to filter out gifs by how big or small they are. It’s quite underwhelming sometimes to scour and find the perfect gif, post it, and it turns out it’s one of the ones that is physically so tiny you can’t really see what’s in it - you can combine gifs in your own “pack” and heart gifs you like, which is great. However, it’s hard to pull these up through the keyboard. (And of course you do have to make an account to keep track of them.) - the keyboard has been randomly crashing a lot lately (like almost constantly). I did just install the latest iOS update, so hopefully that will be fixed.

Full circle, I need to update my review as it was mainly operator error!

I figured out that I need to make sure I’m signed in and have since been able to get it to work as it should. Some gifs still won’t let you edit but all-in-all it’s still a great app to use.

I loved having being able to edit the pics with captions. However, it’s not letting me do it at all now. Whenever I type a search name it pulls the related pics up and I can choose, but then it goes back to the default starting page. So I have to keep typing the same search name for each and every pic I want. The search bar won’t auto correct and requires backspacing all the way to retype a word that was spelled wrong. Now… can’t even edit the pics to add phrases. Just not user friendly and def no better than any other app. So disappointed.

Ugh the worst

While I love gifs & think this is the best gif keyboard out there, it leaves much to be desired. I’ve had this issue since either Riffsy rebranded to Tenor or since Google bought the app…it’s been a while. First, my empty packs wouldn’t delete. I would try to reorganize my gifs, only to have the empty pack show back up. Then, and this is the more annoying issue, my packs show up as empty. I’ve been using this app since the beginning (or if not the beginning then close to it). All the gifs in the that I have carefully cultivated into packs over the years are gone. If I add new gifs to the packs, they’ll show up temporarily. And, gifs that I’ve added to the packs show up on the cover of the pack but aren’t in the pack itself. Now, I can’t delete empty packs because what if they aren’t actually empty? I’ve emailed at least once a year about this issue, and it’s unfortunately still unresolved. As annoying as this issue is, I will still continue to use the app because, as I said previously, this is the best gif keyboard app I’ve found.
