Such fun!

I just love using this hilarious app! So many of the little quotes or scenes from famous movies or TV shows etc. that we want to send somebody in a quick short gif this is perfect! The one problem I have is sometimes it’s not available when I click through all of my keyboard apps. It can be very very sporadic depending on my location.
*It’s also a little bit of a pain that you can’t cut and paste or highlight when you’re looking for something in the search bar etc. you have to completely backspace to the beginning if you make a mistake or want to start or change what you’re looking for.
*Also wish there was a “favorites” button or way to show the most recent gifs you’ve sent.

Love it !

I’ve been using this for years now. It’s way better than the one that is already available for you with your iPhone. This one has a lot more “adult “ friendly GIF ‘s. Which are a lot of fun. If you are currently using the one that’s connected you should just use this one if you’re an adult. You simply DL it and in your settings in your keyboards you would add this application to your keyboard. It’s that simple to do and use. Only thing I’d FIX: You should be able to click on the icon which takes you from the imoji keyboard to the OG keyboard to the GIF this one BUT there seems to be an issue when trying to go back to Imoji. It’s all messed up and I e tried reinstalling the app. Phone off n on. Updates r new.

It’s great !

If you are looking for something to say in GIG it’s pretty much there! I do alternate betweeen it and my regular keyboard perhaps because I am used to my regular keyboard or perhaps I feel the old one is faster ? Is that bc I’m used to it I don’t know possibly I just started using this so it will take some getting used to but I do love it because like I say any GIF I’ve looked for so far is there!! And really you do alternating between your regular keyboard and the GIF because you have to patch the world to get the other one so there is that I’m being silly ha ha if you think you’re going in between them is sort of are !! LOL!! Just get used to it 😂 smiley is even there! Just close the tenor!
