This app has extremely amazing GIFS from my personal experience & my use of this app it literally has every thats one can imaginable and have the ability to personalize a message on the Gif of your choice. I also enjoy that if your. GIF gets voted by the Ppl you will get notify how many times others use it and Shared If that doesn’t impress you perhaps this may be something that will convince you of the fact that if your GIF is shared & voted it will be selected by Tenor to be permanently be featured on their app so Others may wish to use. As an example I have one particular GIF that was shared & loved by over 15,000 people now is being featured permanently by Tenor so others can see it and use it Look at it give it a chance use it personalized it & you will see what I’m speaking about. I hope you ENJOY this app as much as I do. I would like to take a moment to thank the creator of the app they are continually keep up with all the changes from lLove politics and so much much more. Keep it up y’all.

Not working exactly

I sent some tenor greetings in text message . Later on it seems to have taken over when I was playing gin rummy plus. When I tried the change the point numbers using my keyboard the tenor gif would pop up and I couldn’t get rid in it. I reset the phone and nothing changed. In seiitnds it says eMobile keyboard in a number of places. Is this infected with something?

Update: some reason this has disappeared and I went to get it again said open so I guess it still in my phone somewhere. So I guess I missed it but if it interferes anymore with any programs I will try to get rid of it.

Update, June 27, 2021 I do like these Tenor icons. I Had the TENOR Keyboard Turned off in settings. I missed them so I turned them back on. what I really find extremely annoying ( is why itprobably deserve three stars instead ) is that whenever I try to use the numbers and symbols they come with my iphone on the left bottom side of my iPhone keyboard, my thumb is too big and usually lauches the TENOR icons. And I have to go through the whole thing going back to get to the keyboard again. It’s just very annoying and I wish they would’ve had a place to open TENOR some other way.

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!
