Gboard – the google keyboard
Description
Gboard is the keyboard from Google for your iPhone, packed with features to make typing effortless. On top of GIFs, emoji search, and Glide Typing, the power of Google is at your fingertips with Google Search built in. Forget switching from app to app – just search and send, all from one place. GIFs — Search GIFs for the best reaction Emoji Search — Find the perfect emoji, faster Stickers - Create or share stickers to express yourself Glide Typing — Type faster by sliding your finger from letter to letter Search and send anything from Google: • Nearby stores and restaurants • Videos and images • Weather forecasts • News and articles • Sports scores • And anything else you’d search on Google gboard for iphone and iPad supports the following languages: • Afrikaans • Arabic • Azerbaijani • Belarusian • Bengali • Bulgarian • Catalan • Croatian • Czech • Danish • Dutch • English • Estonian • Finnish • French • German • Greek • Gujarati • Hausa • Hebrew • Hindi • Hungarian • Icelandic • Indonesian • Italian • Japanese • Khmer • Korean • Latvian • Lithuanian • Macedonian • Malay • Maltese • Marathi • Norwegian • Persian • Polish • Portuguese (Brazil) • Portuguese ( Portugal) • Romanian • Russian • Serbian • Simplified Chinese • Slovak • Slovenian • Spanish • Swahili • Swedish • Tamil • Telugu • Thai • Traditional Chinese (Taiwan) • Traditional Chinese (Hong Kong) • Turkish • Ukrainian • Vietnamese • Welsh • Zulu Privacy We know the things you type on your phone are personal, so we’ve designed Gboard to keep your private information private. What Gboard sends to Google: • Gboard sends your searches to Google’s web servers to give you search results. • Gboard also sends usage statistics to Google to let us know which features are used most often and to help us understand problems if the app crashes. • If you use Gboard’s microphone, voice input will be sent to Google for transcription. What Gboard doesn’t send to Google: • Other than your searches and voice inputs, Gboard doesn't send anything you type to Google, whether it’s a password or chat with a friend. • To help you with spelling and to predict searches you might be interested in, Gboard will store the words you type on your device. This data is not accessible by Google or by any apps, and can be cleared at any time. • If you’ve turned on contacts search in Gboard search settings, this allows Gboard to search the contacts on your device so you can easily share. None of these queries are sent to Google.
It’s a great app for...

Required
by garted on 2020/10/25 00:48
The iOS keyboard is so terrible and so distracting that Gboard is practically required just to make the dang phone useable. I don't like giving my data to Google but I also don't like being frustrated beyond belief, so Gboard it is.
2020 Keyboard!!
by Willz215 on 2020/10/24 17:10
Get this keyboard for your future... iOS keyboard has made leaps and bounds but google is google. Why not a 5 star review? The iteration of the emoji switcher and finder isn’t as intuitive as the native iOS keyboard. But still serviceable.
Love it coming from Android to iOS
by davidk_in_co on 2020/10/24 15:35
Wish the algorithms checked what you wrote and corrected itself when using Swype for text input, when it messes up it really messes up. Can't get the numbers row to show even with the options turned on for some reason.
Cool

Have been using Gboard for years. Just got my iPhone 12 pro yesterday and discovered Gboard is not optimized for this phone yet. Please fix because I hate the apple keyboard.
Pretty good.

I love how I can search Google inside of the keyboard and find gifs.
Myanmar Language
by THA1985 on 2020/10/24 07:16
Myanmar/Burmese language is not included in GBoard of Apple Devices. We would like to use GBoard with Myanmar font in my Apple devices because typing experience of GBoard is very comfortable in my android phone.

Randomly cuts out and says it’s too quiet
by maajka on 2020/10/23 23:21
Have I ever been this frustrated trying to have a conversation using voice and I’m going to prove that it’s just a Gboard because I’m writing this entire review using my voice using a standard iOS keyboard and voice control When I tried using the Gboard it would cut out every few seconds and almost immediately as soon as I press the mic it was say it’s too quiet buggy software frustrates people and makes them never want to use it again
It's a good keyboard.
by keptore on 2020/10/23 21:20
It is a good keyboard for the most part.. But.. The English keyboard could definitely use support for the Apple dictation button, the gboard dictation is poorly implemented, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't, and often takes ages to start. Other than that, it's a solid keyboard. I really wish it had a bigger choice of languages like it's android counterpart.

Potential, but missing key features
by techasaur on 2020/10/22 17:53
This keyboard is good, but not great. For iOS, most users choose this keyboard for additional features over the default iOS keyboard. Please bring this version up to standards with the Android version: adjust the height of the keyboard (pretty basic feature), ability to use emoji kitchen, adjust vibration sensitivity and amount on keypress, and in general more customization. Would love the option to scroll with cursor on long press of spacebar as well!
Easy to use

I have been using g board for a long time now on my iPhone X and love it. However, it has developed a glitch where it constantly backspaces and deletes my typing. There are definitely some major glitches that need to be worked out because at this point I can’t even use it.
Add Kurdish keyboard
by Rerraw on 2020/10/21 17:27
Hi I'm very surprised when I see this program on iOS not contains Kurdish language and keyboard. This keyboard use widely insides Kurdish people. On Android contains due to this intil now I'm not purchased iPhone. This is of my wife mobile

Incorrect autocorrections
by Skfrmnt on 2020/10/21 04:46
Gboard is a good innovation like built-in search but lacks accuracy. For example, I was trying to type “This year will be different “ it autocorrected “This” to “We’re” and I could not override. Major annoyance.

Don‘t download !!!!
by jadeurveda on 2020/10/20 21:32
Pay attention to the fact that if you agree to the terms you agree to them having full access to everything you typed before and after downloading this app !!!
Where do you come up with these words?
by abusymomthree on 2020/10/20 15:17
Swype can be so helpful but not when you continually have to go back and edit the bizarre words that this app comes up with. Is it Chinese? What happened to basic English. "so" and "do"becomes Soo every time. "and" is always"Anna's." And then the strange things like "liaung," What?! It's gotten to the point it is faster to do one letter at a time.
No Spellcheck, No Thesaurus
by Jason Caserta on 2020/10/20 13:54
I would have rated this Keyboard as 5 stars if it returned basic Spellcheck. Once you type a misspelled word Google Keyboard keeps suggesting next time, instead of suggesting the correct spelling. Few years ago this Keyboard had basic Language Dictionaries build in. What is happening with Google when it can't correct most English language words?

iOS Gboard is a letdown
by RoeCord on 2020/10/20 01:15
I just moved to iOS from Android, and the Google Keyboard is much, much better on Android. On iOS, there’s a weird globe icon that wastes a ton of space by the space bar; on top of that, I have no quick and easy access to a period and comma. Huge let down.

Different between Android and Apple
by トワト on 2020/10/19 04:47
When I had my android phone, I exclusively used Gboard because of the many widgets it had at the top. Right now I only see the search function, the google translate, and sticker widgets. I really want the clipboard one instead and all the others I had on my android. Is there any way to get those widgets or should I be asking for an update?
Gboard keeps recommending contacts
by juanh82 on 2020/10/19 04:01
I've disabled Contacts Search and I've cleared dictionary, but Gboard keeps recommending first names and last names from my contacts when I swipe to type words. It makes me waste much more time then using another keyboard like Apple's.
Thank you

The ios version doesn't have all the languages

Buggy but innovative when it works
by HelFireDrew on 2020/10/16 03:05
Gboard is the best there is when it comes to smartphone typing. It’s easy to use and has everything you could need from a keyboard. Unfortunately it’s really buggy with Apple and doesn’t play well. I put up with some of the issues for about a year, then deleted it. Installed it again recently and am now deleting it again because the bugs got worse. Part of this might be Apple’s fault but it’s not working for me.
Love It but Spell Correction is TERRIBLE
by _Vices_ on 2020/10/16 00:37
This is by far my favorite keyboard so I hate not giving it five stars, but I just can't get over how terrible its auto-correct has become. As someone who types quick enough that the predictive text suggestions are not of much use, I can't send a single text anymore without auto-correct changing a word or three and making a coherent thought look like I am drunk within the body of said text. I love this keyboard, I (probably) will not use another in spite of this, but just be warned that you might eventually have to turn auto-correct off if you type fast like I do / don't rely on the predictive text suggestions.

better but frustrating voice typing and needs landscape
by UniCit on 2020/10/15 16:13
I use it on my ipad and I like it a lot except for a few things. First, the settings screen is ONLY portrait so when I use it on ipad pro, which i use often in landscape with their ‘smart’ kbd, it requires me to rotate my screen which is very inconvenient. It would be minor, but it always dovetails with the next issue. gboard voice typing is very frustrating to use. It often fails immediately when I invoke it with the mic button. It also always seems to require the gboard screen to pop up at first to enable voice typing. This means i get a jarring portrait mode swap then back to my voice entry screen which after a frustratingly random amount of time shows an animation, as if it is listening. Sometimes it takes my voice entries the 1st time, sometimes not. But it ALWAYS wants to stop listening for the slightest pause. Either way, this means I have to invoke the mic button again. This is when it becomes extra difficult. It almost always shows an animation as if it is listening but then it doesnt take my voice at all. Then it happens again. Then the next time, gboard slams into portrait again then it actually starts listening but again wants to time out asap. <SIGH> STILL BETTER THAN SIRI. :)

by DaoLoD on 2020/10/12 16:19

Bug when switching from landscape to portrait
by avnyc11 on 2020/10/12 05:49
If I'm watching a video in landscape mode and then I get a message and need to respond to it, switching to the message app and rotating to portrait mode causes the keys to become very skinny and it is impossible to type. The only way to fix this is to rotate the device to landscape and then back to portrait again. Please fix this! Thank you

Need Burmese Keyboard
by Onion_Ninja on 2020/10/11 21:38
I am a heavy G-suite user, and now that some google apps are becoming able to be set as default apps (Gmail & Chrome), I’m happy about. And I really want to have Gboard as my default keyboard as well because I love its functions. However, unfortunately, there is no Burmese keyboard on Gboard for iOS while Android has it. And it is a dealbreaker for me since it is my native language. There are also a lot of Burmese iPhone users who are having the same problem as well. Please considering adding Burmese keyboard to the app so we can completely move on to the G-suite. Overall a great keyboard and I would really love to migrate to it completely, but since my native language keyboard is not supported, I’m being prevented from using it.

Swift & Slick
by TunaFish#5 on 2020/10/10 15:07
I used to think SwiftKey was the bomb, but Gboard takes it to the next level. *BIG* advantage over SwiftKey around punctuation characters and in editing existing text intelligently. I'm sold, after less than a day. Update after shifting to a new phone: - why does it prefer "too" when I want to write "to?" Not always, but too often. I must always review my writing.

Needs a set of instructions but otherwise great!
by dowell_db on 2020/05/11 18:31
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
by Dirkadirka on 2019/07/28 17:38
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.
Simply the best, thx google
by AstuaryKing22 on 2020/02/23 07:39
I used Swype for years, even once the iPhone days came upon us.. then I randomly got a Pixel 2XL after years of Apple a year ago.. If you're a CHROME user, or mainly default to google(which has been perfect for me) whether you're an iPhone user or "Android"(I've never felt this pixel was a Droid, just a perfected Google phone) you'll know besides losing ichat (if leaving iPhone) that there's really no learning curve or feature displasia, though ichat is almost enough to draw you back alone, it's all I ever missed. I say that to say, the keyboard has been the same as well due to using the Gboard, adding the amazing (and an on/off option for it, as well as other features to fully customize your keyboard to your LOVING ) Swype feature to the already incredible Google Keyboard.. the ONE and hardest thing I find when trying to go back to iPhone, is losing the full auto-fill option for EVERYTHING.. Passwords, saved bank cards, usernames etc it's always instant no thought.. unless I'm wrong google has perfected user functionality in this area, while my Apple remains trusting taking much longer wanting a face recog, thumb print and then sometimes having to pick pswrds from a whole long list, very inconvenient.
Thought this was FANTASTIC news for iPhone owners
by 🐚🔔 on 2019/12/05 02:59
So when I found out Google made a keyboard for my iPhone I was so excited because Apple's keyboard is terrible....but now into my 3rd day after installing it and I'm so irritated with it, I'm to the point of uninstalling! As I am trying to type this review, here and now, my cursor just starts freaking out and trying to keep just zooming back to the very beginning of my message and no matter how many times I try to move the cursor back to where it should be, it just keeps trying to rewind to the beginning like it has a crazy, possessed mind of it's own! It also just randomly adds words, deletes words, and it even started typing one text message COMPLETELY BACKWARDS!!!!! (Not to mention the crazy auto correct nonsense going on--I typed "mind" correctly just now only to have it auto "corrected" to "kind", then "I typed" was changed to "ill tempted" and "not to" (as in not to mention) was changed to motto and mention was changed to MEMTION!!! Come on Google, get it together... We know you can do better than this! My messages and texts, instead of being easier and quicker to be able to type and send, are taking me 3x as long because I'm having to fight it to say what I want it to say and do what I'm trying to do!!! It's HORRIBLE! The idea or the concept is great.... IF YOU WOULD JUST FIX THE BUGS!!!!
Great keyboard, suggested text can be problematic.
by ..BirdBoi.. on 2020/03/23 22:53
The keyboard is great, before iOS added swipe texting it was an amazing feature to have available. It works just fine for me in most aspects, there are just two main issues I run into with the keyboard. Sometimes after I type a key the highlighted part that pops up to show what key you're hitting will not go away once I tap the key and a lot of them will hover and jumble up they keyboard making it difficult or impossible to navigate. Alongside that issue the predictive and suggested text can be annoying at times. Most of the time it's helpful and accurate and helps me type or fixes my spelling errors but there is a somewhat common issue I have where after I type something out it will change it to something different. For example I could type "for the last time" and it will change to "it's the best side", something I don't say while texting. Not sure what causes these issues but I hope to see them addressed in a future update.
Rediculous
by RainnyDayBooks on 2020/01/20 16:05
I text a sentence or paragraph. I proof read it....it's all correct. Then when I press send 98% of the words get changed to words that make no sense, or the get changed to misspelled words. No wonder there are so many grammar errors in everyone's text. It's doing it now...I had to change the word send....it kept changing it to sent. And it keeps changing the word " word" to worry. Please fix this. Update: Are you not concerned at all about your product not working? It's a hot mess of crap you have to go back and fix at least 8 times in one paragraph or sentence because your product changes it. It's your product. Instead of being worried about the bottom line....money , how about a worthy product? I'm getting another texting app like I had before, I never had to change thing. And when it gave me a choice of another word spelled right and I chose it.......it was spelled right....not wrong. Even now the word "was" was changed to would've. Does that make sense? Your one of the biggest tech Giants.....I'm sure you can fix it. And why did it capitalize Giants? I'm not talking about team Giants. I thought it was supposed to predict what you mean. Your app is getting to be a joke.
Amazing keyboard with one major error
by AMM2025 on 2019/12/15 17:40
Overall, this keyboard is amazing. There’s so many unique and innovative features, especially searching emojis, the glide keyboard, google translate, and copying links/contacts/etc., and all the customization available. If you’re looking into downloading tbis keyboard, I’d absolutely push you to do it, regardless of the very occasional bugs. That said, there is one major bug that needs to be fixed. Significantly recently, whenever I go to use the keyboard on any application, it immediately automatically switches the the default iOS English keyboard. Strangely, the glide typing on the iOS keyboard doesn’t work either, which can cause a major inconvenience in certain situations. This bug has happened a lot before, but recently, when I switch back to gBoard, it immediately reverts again to the iOS keybord, so I’m almost completely unable to use the gBoard. However, this keyboard is overall absolutely worth the install, as this bug won’t necessarily affect everyone.
So many bugs.
by TheBirchWoodTree on 2019/11/06 03:57
Would be amazing if it weren’t for the insufferable bugs. Apple changed the way their keyboards used special characters and I didn’t like it, so I wanted a new keyboard. I’ve already sold my soul and everything to Google (because I do like google products a great deal) so I decided to get this. But wow. First, if you type too fast for more than about 10 seconds, it starts freezing. The letter pop ups stop disappearing and typing becomes slow until it fixes after about 10 more seconds.. and then does it again immediately. You can only fix this by completely restarting the app you’re typing in. Second is more major: for no reason, seemingly random, it’ll cause no keyboard to pop up when you click a text field. Just nothing. No apple keyboard, nothing. Nothing can fix this short of turning the device completely off and back on, taking a minute or two. After trying to live with these bugs for the last half a year, telling myself “they’ll fix it soon!” I finally gave in and deleted the app. I hate apple keyboard, typing this review on it now just feels horrible, and I’m going to look for another keyboard right after. I think bugs that big going unfixed for that long is inexcusable.
Keyboard glitching
by M1ght1203 on 2020/07/15 03:36
Ok, let me be honest here. I've been a big fan and supporter of Google and it's products for a long time, but with this keyboard, I must say that I'm slightly disappointed. There is this bug where after using the keyboard for awhile, it starts to stutter and glitch out. The only solution currently that's working for me is to either delete the app and reinstall, or just turn off full access for the keyboard. I know that this bug has been around for a long time and it still has not been fixed. Even still, I would go out of my way to use this keyboard, but sadly, I think it's time for this to go. Unless the developers do something about this God forsaken bug that has been around for ages, I would not look back at this keyboard again. I think it is a smart move for me explore new keyboards such as swift key or other option. With all this said, I am still a big fan of Google and it's products, but I am hoping for a change with this app, so please read this review and take into consideration of these issues. I am looking forward to a bright future for this app.
Suddenly Has Major Problems
by Rcast1986 on 2020/05/22 00:43
Used to love this keyboard, especially for bringing haptic typing feedback to an iPhone keyboard (seriously, I can't go back). The built-in search and gif features are amazing, and I can finally swear like an adult without my phone telling me I meant to reference a water fowl. But over the past few months, it seems like something on Gboard just...broke. And now about 3 out of every 5 sentences I start (when bringing up the keyboard for the first time) won't capitalize the letter unless I backspace first. This is super annoying, but even worse, at least a few times a day, the keyboard will just appear to get disoriented, for lack of a better term. And it's like it thinks the things I'm typing are something else entirely, and it will change every word I type into something else entirely, completely unrelated. It's usually with super common 2 letter words like it, is, an, or, and so forth, and it will KEEP changing those words until I close out of the app or change to the default iPhone keyboard. These issues have unfortunately made it useless to me, as I can't be stopping to battle the autocorrect every few minutes. Super disappointing! Hopefully Google fixes this soon.
Great!... When Bug Free
by dylanbrown7799 on 2020/07/04 06:33
I’ve been using Gboard ever since iOS added the feature of third-party keyboards. It’s got everything I need: slide-typing, a great search bar for quick inquiries, access to millions of gifs, a clean look, easy access to google translate, auto-suggested words, and other useful features that I’m sure I’m forgetting about. It’s become my daily-driver and it’s hard not using it, however lately that’s exactly what I’ve been having to do. I used to run into the occasional glitch where it would seemingly crash and reboot over and over again, but this was on my previous phone (iPhone 6s) and I figured it was just because support for older versions of hardware were slowly being phased out. Unfortunately I’ve been running into that same glitch on my current phone (iPhone 11 Pro) and I know now that my previous excuse no longer applied. TLDR: Fantastic keyboard, but there’s a current frustrating glitch that renders it unusable.
Useless Autocorrect
by Yeonne Greene on 2019/11/07 23:35
The only reason to use this app at all is because Apple refuses to include haptic feedback with their built-in option. The autocorrect almost never catches any words and it constantly adds apostrophes where it shouldn't. The key spacing is inferior on Gboard, which only exacerbates the autocorrect issue; I am constantly pressing "b" or "v" instead of "space" and it Never. Ever. Corrects. It. Not once will it ever fix this typos, so I look up at my message and have to delete it and start over because not only does it not catch this while typing, it also does not recognize the issue when I select that text. Picking the letters out one at a time would be slower than starting over. And the icing that just makes this extra mediocre is that there is no way to set the keyboard background to use the system scheme, so it is always an awkward block of opaque color where Apple's would be a seamlessly integrated and translucent pane. So, yeah. If I did not find keyboards without haptics basically unusable I would not be using Gboard. Hear that Apple? Microsoft? Literally anybody other than HapticKeyboard? Fix this.
GREAT product!!
by Howboutthat? on 2019/01/13 11:23
This works very well on my I-phone!! It's much better (and faster!) than my previous 1-finger method of typing! I was absolutely devastated when I accidentally lost the keyboard for a few days, but finally figured out how to get it back & was very relieved!! It took me awhile to figure out that you don't have to space between words (in most cases) - the keyboard automatically does it for you. Sometimes you don't have to put in the entire word. Just start the word, & the keyboard will automatically finish it for you. It IS a good idea to get used to reading as you type, though, or you may end up with "feel" instead of "fell" (or vice versa). Double letters sometimes cause problems. The keyboard usually gives you 2 or 3 choices of words if it puts in the wrong word. The more you use this keyboard, the better you'll be at using it, & the more of a fan you'll be!! Have FUN with this keyboard!
Glitchy and Laggy since iOS 13
by Mike.S1261 on 2020/06/11 20:49
Prior to iOS 13, GBoard was the best keyboard out there for iPhone. In fact, it still is in spite of the issues. But, ever since updating to iOS 13 (the version of iOS where Apple introduced their own Swipe to Type keyboard), GBoard has been very problematic. If I type a long email or message on FB Messenger, eventually the keyboard starts lagging to the point of not being usable. I have to save my message or email, restart the app, and then I get some more time before lag returns. Then periodically, once a month or so, it requires a complete delete/restart/reinstall, or the keyboard gets stuck in a "crash and reload" cycle over and over and over again with no cure other than deleting it and having to reconfigure my custom keyboard colors again upon reinstallation. I swear Apple must be sabotaging it now that they have their own Swipe to Type keyboard. But GBoard is so so much better than the native keyboard so I have to deal with the issues. Every update I hope it got resolved, but no such luck.
"A Boy and His GBoard". (Oprah Stewart gives this a must read!)
by Reveiw Stu on 2018/10/07 08:52
The swipe keyboard is so fast if you take the time to learn it! Search bar makes for quick info lookup. I also love the gif finder. Only wish is a better 3D touch cursor. If you press and hold down on the keyboard it goes blank and can be used as a free moving cursor. But that's where that journey ends unfortunately. The iPhone keyboard, if you press more firmly while in cursor mode, highlights and selects text. Could not do that with GBoard. Hopefully I am just an idiot. I don't see Google doing the ball on that. You can personalise the background with your own picture of choice. Makes iPhone keyboard seem kinda rudimentary. Love it Google. You guys rock! Now if they could just make Google tasks have a time with the date my whole life could be synced with Google lol but that is for another time. Seriously. Get Gboard. You owe it to your fingers. And your poor vocabulary. Just saying.
Gboard
by cewstorm on 2019/01/26 05:06
Good app. Some of the glide typing is easy off and I am not sure if it is self learning, which it does not seem to be since it continues to put in the same wrong words every time even when it is just after our later. That is a big issue for me. Making me wanting to go back to Swift key. This either need to really be juiced up out you will lose me a as that is how I've been typing since having the original Droid Razor.... So not changing. Also..? Sometimes it just seems to change from good typing to regular typing in the middle of a message not sure why it what I hit and should not have do that I can at the very least there it just changed from glide typing to regular not sure why, anyhow not sure what I got so I can avoid it change back of need. Where is detailed manual? Thanks and still had fighting change but many of these issues neg to be addressed very soon. Thanks in advance for your help and coding changes. Best Chris Winters
Well, I've used it long enough to not want to go back but...
by Choklatz on 2018/07/06 23:36
Take a guess what I might have meant in the next paragraph. I typed this with the gboard and purposely didn't correct the typos so you can see what I mean. I spend so much time fixing this stupid board but I'm spoiled on swiping. (I corrected above. Below is usual results. I am a college professor. I am not illiterate as this might suggest.) I've been using this keyboard for a pretty long time. So long I can't guess. I am spilled on swing and just do it automatically now so if I end up on the native iPhone keyboard I end up with one letter of the word because I automatically stay don't. But this keyboard if Buffy. I wants to hang up on one letter and give you just the first letter or the number behind it. I have tried to press note lightly, more carefully, you name it and it still hands up. It also learns your ring which means that it learns your most common wrong series and keeps putting them up as the most likely thing you meant. It also intuits the strangest words that ai would never use. I is almost always spelled ai. It drives me nuts and wastes time.
Discriminatory towards left handed ppl. Almost Perfect (Please adjust for left handed people!!)
by Dorvinci876 on 2020/01/31 23:09
Such high discrimination against left handed people. So only Right handed people live in this world?! Come on man... The one handed keyboard shifts to the right and no way option to get it on the left. And the space-bar is waay too small and is built to the right. So lefties like me struggle to type because I keep hitting the emoji icon when I'm typing fast becuz I space with my left thumb. Come on guys please fix this. Lefties are real people too. The keyboard is almost perfect and I love it but please just fix these minor adjustments and y'all would be the best around for sure. Very good keyboard but very annoying. I'm left handed!!! So my suggestion is... Remove the globe icon that switches between keyboards (becuz apple already has that built in by default), and use that bit of real estate to extend the space-bar access to make it easier for left handed people like myself who has the habit of spacing with their left thumb. I rarely write reviews but I really hope someone will see this and make the adjustment. PLEASE!!!
A truly superior swiping experience
by Lewis is already taken on 2019/10/18 23:56
I've been using Gboard on my iPhone 8 for many months because I wanted to be able to type by swiping, a feature the iOS 12 keyboard lacks. I was happy to learn that iOS 13 has added it, but Gboard really is the superior option. It's much better at interpreting my swipes, and almost always offers the word I wanted as an alternative if it guesses wrong. I don't want to gripe about the native iOS 13 keyboard swiping feature, but I have to say I felt spoiled by Gboard when I tried out the iOS 13 kyeboard after updating. What is probably the single best feature of Gboard is the ability to move the cursor horizontally in text, one character at a time, by swiping on the spacebar. This feature alone would make Gboard worth using, even if it weren't better at interpreting my swipes. Its overall quality truly makes anything else frustrating to use by comparison!
Almost perfect
by Mrlemmers on 2019/05/16 16:28
Gboard is the iOS keyboard that Apple should aim to make theirs. It does everything that the stock keyboard does and then some. It has standard tap typing similar to the stock keyboard, it has voice dictation, and even swipe typing. It does all of these things really well. Recently they also added vibration feedback which is something Apple really should add to the stock keyboard. About the only thing which this keyboard could use some more additions to would be still better theme support. Currently they allow you to change and create a light keyboard theme. They don't allow you to create a dark mode theme however. With the iPhone X series devices especially it's important that the keyboard looks correct in both light and dark. Currently with custom themes though, you can really only use them in light environments with the keyboard looking proper. Otherwise Gboard is great, really doesn't have anything text prediction wise which still needs fixing.
90% great, but horrible predictive text is a deal breaker
by WrongWriter on 2018/07/27 01:07
The layout and abilities of Gboard are so superior to the competition. But, as so many other reviewers have pointed out, the predictive text when using the glide entry is TERRIBLE. For example, when gliding my finger from T to H to E to enter the word THE Gboard will frequently enter THREE instead. THE is probably in the top 1% most frequently used words in English. Why would the program logic select THREE over THE, especially when it makes no sense in the context of the other words in the preceding and following it? I have seen other keyboards that will actually go back and change a word it suggested 3 or 4 words earlier in the sentence once the context of the sentence becomes clear. If things like that are possible why can't Google fix this ongoing problem? I believe the problem had to be addressed in some fashion. The frustration levels I'm reaching over having my flow interrupted every 5 to 7 words to backspace out another wrong word have me ready to jump to a competitor.
Changed my life!, but one little issue
by BronzeRecluse on 2019/06/14 22:58
Gboard is fantastic! I will never go back to a regular keyboard again. The swiping is very accurate. Even if I miss a letter a little bit, Gboard still knows the word. Also it has learned the way I speak so the predictive text is always right. You can talk-to-type and it always understands what I am trying to say. I have English and Spanish Gboard and it's completely wonderful in both languages. My favorite feature is that you can type a word to find emojis! If I type 'heart' all the heart options appear, which makes it easier than searching through all the Emojis. My only complaint is everytime I update the app, it stops being my main keyboard. I keep having to turn the keyboard on and off in my settings for it to show up again. That is very annoying because I love Gboard and always want it to be the only keyboard I use. Please fix that glitch. But other than that, this app is fantastic!
Great things but...
by megdelm on 2018/01/23 11:49
I love the ability to google search, use speech-to-text, customize the photo on the keyboard.. there are so many things I love but the app just stopped working. The keyboard won’t show up sometimes. Sometimes, when trying to swipe, the keyboard decides to get sticky and sink off the screen. I just uninstalled it. I will be trying Swift key for a little while to see if that works better. Keyboard used to work really well but newest update is bad bad bad. Also, it would be awesome if the app could remember the words I actually use everyday rather than the misspelled version I accidentally typed in one time. Really needs a way to edit dictionary which words are suggested. ALSO! Please suggest emoji replacement as predicted for next word: I love adding emojis that come up in predictive text bar but I want the option to add them AFTER adding the actual word I’m typing. Please update so that I don’t have to type the same word in its entirety to get the emoji to be suggested again. Predictive text needs to be smarter!
Way better than others, sub-par autocorrect
by unhappy! 👎🏻 on 2020/03/22 19:43
This keyboard has so many helpful and cool features! Many steps above the regular iPhone keyboard and others on the app store in my opinion. That being said, the autocorrect AI is lacking a bit. I downloaded the app many months ago and one day it crashed and froze in any app I opened. I redownloaded the app and the problem was fixed, but it had to re-learn my typing habits. It still hasn't picked up some things and it's been months since the redownload. Names and acronyms it still struggles with. I often don't capitalize acronyms such as "idk," but the AI hasn't picked up that I retype its correction of "IDK" back to "idk" every single time. I didn't have to do this before the redownload. This happens with uncommon names and other acronyms too. It's not enough for me to return to my normal iPhone keyboard, but it's very annoying. Besides that, the autocorrect is pretty good and every other aspect of the keyboard is amazing.
Nothing like is green guy counterpart
by nimrod29 on 2019/05/15 03:28
Nothing like Gboard on its native platform. The green guy if you are still lost. The long press short cuts are not the same. It's basically like the stock iOS keyboard but you can swipe. It doesn't figure out what words I want as intuitively from swiping like it's version and the green guy's platform that I use as a daily phone. There are no long press short cuts on the A-L keys and Z-M keys instead it force touches and activates iOS's cursor mover which the spacebar already supports by sliding back and forth on. The space bar isn't has good as good as the force touch option but still 2 ways to activate the same feature I'll take my long press shortcuts cover force touch curser mover any day. Built in gif and memes are nice and don't have to use Apple's version which is not as good nor intuitive to use. TLDR: Better than iOS keyboard? Yes but they could have made it a better one to one port from the green guy's platform. I'm sure apple app policies hinder it some but it could still be better.
Almost there. Gboard should buy Swype
by iLoved5152 on 2018/10/09 05:10
....now that Swype is no longer in the mobile keyboard market. They were absolutely the most accurate predictave text, even if you swiped pretty lazily. I find myself having to re-swipe words slower and V-E-R-Y carefully, which gets annoying for the same words over and over. I feel Swype had a way better learn-the-user algorithm as far as what we were trying to type. Also, please add in punctuation swipes. Doesn't even have to be for all of them, but for ? ! ' , it would help. Like from were the exclamation point would be (letters B-N) to the spacebar. It would be especially great for commas, since they're so frequently-used and having to switch to the numbers & symbols keyboard so frequently is annoying. But I do like this more than swiftkey. The search within keyboard is amazing and so helpful. Think about how often we use our phones for searching information. It's genius!
Originally it was great, Not so much anymore
by jdal15 on 2019/11/14 14:25
I loved this app when I first downloaded it. I was using SwiftKey, and once I finally convinced myself to try this one, it had exactly what I wanted that SwiftKey & Apple’s Keyboard didn’t have... HAPTIC FEEDBACK ON KEY PRESS! However, it seems like this app is a little behind with the Apple iOS updates because lately my GBoard has been glitching like crazy. Initially I had no problems & now several times a day I will have to “kill” the app I am using, specifically when I’m typing on the GBoard, because it glitches so bad that all the keys pop up & stay up, blocking all other keys. Maybe consider taking a very close look at the app & updating it to the ABSOLUTE BEST of Google’s ability so that it will work correctly with any iPhone/iOS update. I am going to uninstall GBoard & will not be reinstalling until I see that there were a few updates to this app. I use Google/Google Apps for EVERYTHING, So the soon this is fixed, the happier I’ll be and the more I will recommend it.
I LOVE THIS APP (but a couple things to add)
by Eshaal 。◕‿◕。 on 2019/09/09 20:22
This app provides you with so many cool types of keyboards and faces to send to people other than bitmoji. Like here are some examples of the faces I am talking about:༼ つ ◕_◕ ༽つ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)ಠ_ಠ. As I am writing this review about Gboard, I am using a keyboard. But I only have one suggestion, I think you guys should add one keyboard that allows you to draw,type,color, and many more. Overall, this app is amazing and I think you should have it too. I would also like it if that the keys weren't as small as they are. I have a IPhone 10r and the keyboard is not reaching to the bottom of the screen. I would like it if they added a setting to change the keyboard size. Another suggestion is that I also would like it if we could have a couple more minis like a cute minis, halloween minis, etc. But except all of that, this app is great and I would recommend it!! 😀
Front facing numbers are here
by you assign the nickname on 2018/04/15 03:19
The addition of the embedded secondary number row on the main keyboard is great. Clean up the voice to text recording interface to engage and disengage as smoothly as Apple's native keyboard and Gboard will be the better of the two hands down. Google's voice to text accuracy is already overwhelmingly more than Apple's efforts which makes little sense as Siri and Safari are powered by Google search, perhaps there is an unknown difference in voice to text cognition that has an extremely negative effect on Apple's frankly horrible voice to text capability. I'm on the edge of giving up iMessage and FaceTime because Apple's voice to text capability is so poor. I believe that is fairly self explanatory as to the prospect of future decisions. Sorry about the length, I have been unbelievably frustrated with Apple's simply terrible voice to text capability for quite a long while.
It hurts to use it at times
by SCBsr on 2020/07/21 22:14
I use the voice part of the keyboard, I have to because I’m starting to lose my eyesight and I can’t type anymore. The voice part of this keyboard has gotten atrocious since I got an iPhone and I added it to my iPhone. I have typed words or said words that are not the words that it came up with. I actually send voice and it typed in boys, this is just now when I did this. So as you can see if you use the voice part of this you’re going to absolutely get frustrated and want to throw it through the window because nobody’s gonna understand what you’re talking about. We use the slide or the typing it works absolutely fine and that’s why I got a three. So now when you read this in your thinking wow this doesn’t make any sense it’s probably because of the voice part of it trying to type what it wants to type and none of it makes a bit of sense because it doesn’t understand what I’m saying 9 out of 10 times.
Great Keyboard, major flaw
by Pocket thief on 2020/02/02 00:08
I love gboard and would love to use it over apples poor keyboard, but this glitch keeps the keyboard from even popping up on ios 13. Never had these issues before, so I dont know if its on google or apple but this is beyond frustrating. I JUST WANT GBOARD BACK apples keyboard autocorrection is atrocious. Edit: not really sure what I did but simply reinstalled it and gave it full access to keyboards again and it seems to be working again. I think the iOS update may have messed with settings or something, but Gboard seems to be working fine now. It's far better than iOS's standard keyboard, especially the auto correct and not having the awful predictive typing that apple thinks actually works (it doesn't it literally changes words to things that make absolutely NO sense and is infuriating to actually type with)
I loved it on Samsung, sadly another thing I dislike about this stupid iPhone
by Muchloveria on 2020/05/02 13:19
Beggars can't be choosers. But they can be critics! I am so grateful my parents helped me out when my Samsung was stolen. But they had to get me an iPhone, even though they know I HATE iOS/ apple (save for iPods - though they are cheaply made and shouldn't cost so much...), because of it being the best deal. And now all my apps stink was much as the phone! My Google keyboard doesn't learn my patterns anymore, I can't hold down a button to get my ?!.,&$ — all the beloved expressions I have been accustomed to pressing fast & effortlessly, now w/an iPhone takes extra time to find AND it certainly DOES MATTER when your writing or doing eBay ads, trust I notice this difference! And the iOS keyboard keeps annoyingly popping up at random instead of my Google preference. And now after the latest update the Google keyboard is sluggish and doesn't follow my swypes at all!! Ugh I now not only dislike iOS, I despise it!
Replaced the default keyboard with Gboard
by Playstaycj on 2018/09/04 16:41
I have an iPhone 6 ... Don't judge me. I'm amazed at how fast and non-buggy this application is. Well done, Google! It's great. Like, objectively great. Everything is right at the tip of your thumb. Having Google search, maps, emojis and weather all integrated in the same space sounds like a lot until you see how crisp it all is. No, it will not correctly predict a given word correctly 100% of the time. Nothing does. But 85-90% is still very achievable. The keyboard always suggests three replacements after a swipe, just in case it was wrong the first time. And most people aren't willing to admit that the errors start with them. If you find a word that's not populating, either slow down your gesture (especially on words with double letters), check your spelling (very common mistake) or transition and type.
The best alt keyboard: could be better
by Jtchurch on 2018/04/09 15:59
I love the sweeping ease and Google integrations. There is a lot to improve though. The app's biggest weakness is its poor predictive capabilities, both with words and emojis. Gboard will frequently insert a word that doesn't make any sense in the sentence and is sometimes not even a common word. At times I have to type the word out letter by letter because even careful swiping is not showing the correct word (even though it would be the next obvious word in my sentence). It is also very weak when suggesting emojis from the writing dialogue (without having to switch to the emoji interface). In both of these ways, Apple wins hands down. And let's not forget that the easiest way to write is not to write at all, but dictate and the default Apple keyboard has much better integration and ease of use their too. Once Apple adds swiping to their keyboard, there will be little need for Gboard.

Much easier and better features to use than the standard iPhone keyboard app. The Gboard text predictions are more accurate and the Swype feature actually works correctly. The iPhone cursor is a nightmare to use in order to edit horrible predictions or autocorrect words that don't match up at all with the original word. Gboard is a better product. BUT in order to use dictation and word prediction, we need to give all access to Gboard. iPhone standard keyboard apparently also requires all access and please read the small print on the data it collects, frightening. So change the settings to your needs and if you're smart, don't use your phone for any transactions that exposes your financial accounts or personal detailed information. Go old school and take yourself off the grid when it comes to bank accounts and personal information.
Getting worse
by MTHDmusic on 2017/10/20 22:02
When I first downloaded the Gboard over a year ago, it was awesome. It was exactly what I wanted in a phone keyboard. But I swear every update has slowed down the keyboard's performance as well as making it more glitchy. Oftentimes autocorrect is turned off for some reason, being completely unpredictable as to when the keyboard decides to work correctly. Also there is a strange deleting issue where if you are deleting a word at the end of a sentence, the preceding word somehow jumbles up letters with the word you are deleting. Not even sure how that is possible. But yeah Google is definitely slipping up on these Gboard updates. UPDATE: Changing review to two stars because this krapboard keeps getting worse. Maybe I'm a masochist for continuing to use it. But the fact that it will change correctly and deliberately typed out words to completely different words, all the while leaving misspelled words is just ridiculous. I thought Google was capable of more than this ever-degrading piece of poopoo.
Great idea if it worked. Clumsy and buggy.

iPhone user here. IOS 13.4 I have been using iTranslate but once I started translating the result back to English I found their translation engine was horrible compared to Google Translate. So I was happy to discover Google GBoard now had Google Translate. Too bad it doesn’t work well. Cursor problems abound. Tried to place the cursorbetween two words that needed a space added between them. No matter how much I pressed the space bar, it would not insert the space. The interface is clutzy. Compare the GBoard interface to iTranslate. ITranslation: Highlight my text with select all and cut to the clipboard. Switch to iTranslate KB where there are two buttions. Translate from clipboard or translate from text typed or pasted into the iTranslate text box. After translation, the inset button appears moving the translation back into the text box of the app for sending. One tap on the icon swaps the source and target languages. iTranslate understands that once I start a message with a language pair, say English to Spanish for example, the language choices for other languages are hidden. The program assumes if I'm conmunicating with a Spanish speaker for example, I will continue with that pair for that message. ITranslate has a superior interface but lousy translations. GBoard is just the opposite. Accurate translations but a clumbsy interface. I will happily switch once Google gets GBoard working with a smooth workflow.
Ok

I've been using Gboard since the application came out. I love the feel of the swipe more than any other app or even apples new standard keyboard integrated swipe. I also use the search feature extremely often along with the emoji search bar. Both super useful functions. Only reason I didn't rate it five stars is because all of a sudden, my Gboard glitches as if it's refreshing, but it not only makes the keyboard disappear for a brief second every couple seconds, but it undoes the word I was in the middle of swiping causing me to race to finish the next word before it bugs out again. I haven't been using the keyboard due to this bug but recently discovered if I turn off full access (this DOES disable the search functionality of the keyboard) I can still swipe at least. Please fix this issue as I can't see myself going back to another keyboard.
Amazingly good swiping, so-so tapping
by Dak Kris on 2018/03/07 22:08
While I'm sure there are many decent keyboard replacement apps for iOS these days, in my opinion none is better than Google's Gboard. The speed and accuracy of swipe typing with this keyboard is simply astounding. It absolutely amazes me how often it gets the word I'm wanting correct, even oftentimes when the word is long or even with my family's names (it even automatically added the apostrophe to family just now 😀). Finally one-handed typing on iOS is a pleasure and not a chicken-pecking pain. Add to this the built-in Google search functionality and emoji search, etc. and this app has everything the main Apple keyboard does, but with the huge added function of swipe typing (come on Apple!) The ONLY area that Gboard falls short is, surprisingly, when you type with the traditional tap-typing style. It tends to get my words wrong a lot and even autocorrects to really odd words that make no sense. With the stock Apple keyboard I can tap along and it will usually correct the words properly as I'm typing. Unfortunately Gboard does not do this very reliably and is more frustrating to use when tap typing. Consequently I usually just revert back to one-handed swipe typing because it honestly works like a dream, but I hope that Google will improve the tap typing functionality so I can reliably use either method with minimal frustration.
PLEASE FIX BUGS- Otherwise great keyboard
by Dwindle 2012 on 2017/10/25 05:11
I would have given this keyboard 5 stars 2 months ago, but since the iOS 11 update it has been terribly buggy. Most annoying is that the "L" key about 75% of the time does not register, or it will for whatever reason register as a backspace. One particularly bad instance was when I clicked the "L" once and it continually backspaced my whole message. Another annoying issue is even though I have the Google keyboard set as my default, it will default to the Apple keyboard (not in any specific app) and when I go to select the other keyboard, it simply does not register until I repeat the process 3-5 times. It's a relatively minor problem I know, but when you're expecting a keyboard to work and it doesn't, it quickly becomes aggravating. The functionality and features of this keyboard are phenomenal, but these bugs are getting out of hand, and recent updates haven't helped any.
Regressing updates
by KiwiWatermelon🥝🍉 on 2019/11/18 02:25
I've used Gboard for a long time, and I like the swipe keyboard function. I would abandon it now for the regular iPhone keyboard that allows for swiping, but that punctuation key and it's Google search and emojis keep me from doing that. On my old phone, Gboard was the only keyboard I had, but since I got a new phone, the Chinese keyboard I used is gone. Seriously. You have Hong Kong Chinese, traditional/Taiwanese, but not Mandarin simplified? There are many more people who need that keyboard. And then since the Chinese keyboard is the default for notifications and passwords, I have to use the regular Apple keyboard too. The voice typing is also annoying because it switches to the Gboard app and takes ten seconds to do it, so I never use it. This could be a limitation brought by Apple, but it's annoying. Gboard is nice because it has a lot of functions, but it lacks some very important ones and I still have to use the provided Apple keyboards.
Please help with Russian keyboard!
by chocolate.milk.is.good on 2020/09/26 05:14
Hi I'd like to let you know of an issue I've recently experienced. When I switched to my Russian keyboard, I was presented with an array of bizarre characters. When in uppercase, they are weird forms of the letter D with slashes through it, and additional sub characters such as fractions and stars. When in uppercase I have similar characters presented but instead of D's they're N's. I am using a 2nd gen iPhone SE 2020, and had recently updated it to iOS 14. I removed the Russian keyboard from gboard and reinstalled it, reset my phone multiple times, checked all my settings but couldn't find anything out of the ordinary that could explain this phenomenon. Other than that, I've been using gboard for several years without any problems, and love the app. Please help me out and try to look into this. Thank you!
2/5
by hjfudiejehfhd on 2020/06/05 14:39
App is great, I've had it for over a year. I love the built in search engine and the customizability. However, over the past few months I’ve experienced too many bugs. One bug is auto-correct. Sometimes I would type the correct word, but it would be changed to something completely different which can be very annoying . Another bug is that the keyboard sometimes types words backwards (literally). Another bug, which im experiencing right now, is that the keyboard seems to “jump” up and down every 5 seconds. It almost seems like its refreshing and I cannot type full senteces without it deleting words. Finally, a bug that I prominently see is when I open keyboard , all I see is a blank board. The keys do not appear until I fully restart the app. These bugs are making it extremely difficult to continue using this app and I think its the best keyboard app aside of these bugs. Please look into these bugs, it would be greatly appreciated.
Great, but...
by No Nonsense Reviews on 2019/12/06 23:24
The keyboard is amazing! I love it. The only problem is that ever since iOS 13 has come out, it has been very glitchy. At first, swipe type would glitch out ever once in a while (no big deal), but as of yesterday, it officially stopped working. I have no idea how to fix it. When I restart my phone, it works for about a minute then goes away. I have no more ideas on how to fix the problem and I can’t survive typing normally, I need my swipe type from Google. I definitely advise that you get the keyboard because it is very great and knowing Google, the glitches will be fixed eventually. (I typed this normally without swipe, so please excuse any typos that my fat fingers may have made). Thank you - please let me know if there are any fixes to the problem that I may not have tried.
Totally unusable with iOS 13.
by Capwinsdotcom on 2020/03/10 03:05
GBoard was my preferred keyboard for 3-1/2 years. I downloaded it the week it came out, in May of 2016... I don’t know what happened with iOS 13 on the iPhone XS Max, but Google just can’t get it right. The keyboard glitches, it flashes, it automatically switches between the other keyboards. Totally unusable. Can’t even type a sentence. This has been going on since September of 2019! It’s six months later! With every single update (of both iOS & GBoard) that came along, I have hoped & prayed the issues will be fixed. I uninstalled it. Reinstalled it. Uninstalled it. Reinstalled it. This time, it’s staying off my phone for good. I’m tired of this. Between buying a $1500+ phone, that’s only a year old... And a software development company that has a market cap of over 836 BILLION DOLLARS, this is Amateur Hour at the Apollo. Users shouldn’t have to get totally disgusted & waste hours of their time trying to fix your keyboard. And six months hoping, praying, and waiting for a fix! I’m sorry... There’s no excuse. This is unacceptable on Google’s part.
It is better than iPhone's new slide board
by RicardoRacer on 2019/12/12 02:46
I don't know for sure but I think the Gboard is more accurate. I think it is operator error when it makes a mistake -- I moved wrong or misspelled the word. It takes getting used to typing this way. I tried awhile ago and gave up. I turned on keyboard clicks which is annoying at times especially when I have to type a word. But I have learned when I hear a double click, it means I most likely made a mistake. And have to look at the output. It has also challenged my spelling faculties. I am sticking with it this time to see if I can get faster and more accurate. That remains to be seen. I haven't clocked it in a head to head comparison but so far my perception is Gboard wins. There are a couple of quirks. Screen darken doesn't work on the number screen. It is such a habit to go to another screen to type a number that I didn't even notice the press-and-hold-for-a-number feature on the qwerty row. And The voice dictation is not as smooth as iPhone but I can live with that. The screen doesn't advance sometimes so you have to manually scroll down to see what you typed. All and all, I think it is faster and more accurate. It is definitely better at offering option and has come up with some surprising guesses when I make a mid course correction in my slide to make a word. Clicking away here.
Slows down on latest iOS
by Toadsith on 2020/04/07 02:58
Update: April 6th, the recent update didn't work, and so I'm still stuck with Apple's inferior swipe keyboard. Please fix the freezing and lagging. If it helps, it is noticeably worse in Snapchat for some reason. Original Review: It'll work fine for most of the day and then it starts slowing down, letter previews stay up on the keyboard, which means the swipe stops working. it'll stop loading the GIF previews and even stop copying them or letting you scroll through them. It gets progressively slower responding until it is unusable and I have to switch over to the iOS default keyboard for a couple hours or literally reboot the phone. It's been doing this for the last couple months. I keep hoping the app will get updated as it is my favorite keyboard by far. No more "ducking" "shut" in my text messages and I love the fast GIF searching, but we desperately need an update for the current iOS.
I love Gboard!
by apfitzg2 on 2018/07/13 06:27
I love Gboard so much now! I tried it when it first came out and wasn't a fan, especially because I'm picky about aesthetic, but it looks perfect and works perfectly now. I love the ability to quickly swipe up for numbers and I love how I can just search for everything using the keyboard so I don't have to keep switching apps. I'm not sure about others, but the predictive text works awesome for me. I just had to get used to it (which was within a couple of hours!). Putting the voice to text button in the space bar was a really good idea, too, in my opinion! With the integrated Apple keyboard I kept hitting the button by accident. I do find myself hitting the keyboard switch button sometimes, though, but the advantages of this keyboard outweigh the disadvantages by far.
Annoying learning, lagging type, bizarre predictive corrections
by Beaux2012 on 2019/04/09 15:55
I've been using Gboard for nearly three years. There's a lot that I love, especially having search/maps/gifs capacity built into the keyboard. The idea of the talk to text is great but it lags because it has to go to a whole new screen taking sometimes as long as 5 seconds before I can start talking and then taking equally as long to return to the original screen. The most persistent issue is vocabulary learning. Every. Single. Update. Leads to a period of a few days where customized text added to my dictionary is lost or forgotten, shortcuts added to iOS is unavailable, and swipe text seems to be less exact than before. Very annoying. The most obnoxious issue is ex-post-facto predictive text correction. I type a word I presume the Gboard won't have in its dictionary, correct its spelling, select it in the predictive bar and then when other words are added to the sentence Gboard decides to change the entirety of that word and/or the entire sentence to suit some bizarre prediction. What?! Why?! Gboard also crashes certain apps and is a huge battery draining app, similar to chrome on any device. It makes me wonder if this is because Google is trying to pull data and resources from all over the device. I like the convenience but I'm seriously considering eliminating it

by garted on 2020/10/25 00:48
The iOS keyboard is so terrible and so distracting that Gboard is practically required just to make the dang phone useable. I don't like giving my data to Google but I also don't like being frustrated beyond belief, so Gboard it is.
2020 Keyboard!!
by Willz215 on 2020/10/24 17:10
Get this keyboard for your future... iOS keyboard has made leaps and bounds but google is google. Why not a 5 star review? The iteration of the emoji switcher and finder isn’t as intuitive as the native iOS keyboard. But still serviceable.
Love it coming from Android to iOS
by davidk_in_co on 2020/10/24 15:35
Wish the algorithms checked what you wrote and corrected itself when using Swype for text input, when it messes up it really messes up. Can't get the numbers row to show even with the options turned on for some reason.

Have I ever been this frustrated trying to have a conversation using voice and I’m going to prove that it’s just a Gboard because I’m writing this entire review using my voice using a standard iOS keyboard and voice control When I tried using the Gboard it would cut out every few seconds and almost immediately as soon as I press the mic it was say it’s too quiet buggy software frustrates people and makes them never want to use it again
It's a good keyboard.
by keptore on 2020/10/23 21:20
It is a good keyboard for the most part.. But.. The English keyboard could definitely use support for the Apple dictation button, the gboard dictation is poorly implemented, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't, and often takes ages to start. Other than that, it's a solid keyboard. I really wish it had a bigger choice of languages like it's android counterpart.

Potential, but missing key features
by techasaur on 2020/10/22 17:53
This keyboard is good, but not great. For iOS, most users choose this keyboard for additional features over the default iOS keyboard. Please bring this version up to standards with the Android version: adjust the height of the keyboard (pretty basic feature), ability to use emoji kitchen, adjust vibration sensitivity and amount on keypress, and in general more customization. Would love the option to scroll with cursor on long press of spacebar as well!

Where do you come up with these words?
by abusymomthree on 2020/10/20 15:17
Swype can be so helpful but not when you continually have to go back and edit the bizarre words that this app comes up with. Is it Chinese? What happened to basic English. "so" and "do"becomes Soo every time. "and" is always"Anna's." And then the strange things like "liaung," What?! It's gotten to the point it is faster to do one letter at a time.
No Spellcheck, No Thesaurus
by Jason Caserta on 2020/10/20 13:54
I would have rated this Keyboard as 5 stars if it returned basic Spellcheck. Once you type a misspelled word Google Keyboard keeps suggesting next time, instead of suggesting the correct spelling. Few years ago this Keyboard had basic Language Dictionaries build in. What is happening with Google when it can't correct most English language words?

iOS Gboard is a letdown
by RoeCord on 2020/10/20 01:15
I just moved to iOS from Android, and the Google Keyboard is much, much better on Android. On iOS, there’s a weird globe icon that wastes a ton of space by the space bar; on top of that, I have no quick and easy access to a period and comma. Huge let down.

Different between Android and Apple
by トワト on 2020/10/19 04:47
When I had my android phone, I exclusively used Gboard because of the many widgets it had at the top. Right now I only see the search function, the google translate, and sticker widgets. I really want the clipboard one instead and all the others I had on my android. Is there any way to get those widgets or should I be asking for an update?
Gboard keeps recommending contacts
by juanh82 on 2020/10/19 04:01

The ios version doesn't have all the languages

The ios version gboard is not as good as Android version. I couldn't find Nepalese and Nepalbhasa language options. Rating one star for now.
Buggy but innovative when it works
by HelFireDrew on 2020/10/16 03:05
Gboard is the best there is when it comes to smartphone typing. It’s easy to use and has everything you could need from a keyboard. Unfortunately it’s really buggy with Apple and doesn’t play well. I put up with some of the issues for about a year, then deleted it. Installed it again recently and am now deleting it again because the bugs got worse. Part of this might be Apple’s fault but it’s not working for me.
Love It but Spell Correction is TERRIBLE
by _Vices_ on 2020/10/16 00:37
This is by far my favorite keyboard so I hate not giving it five stars, but I just can't get over how terrible its auto-correct has become. As someone who types quick enough that the predictive text suggestions are not of much use, I can't send a single text anymore without auto-correct changing a word or three and making a coherent thought look like I am drunk within the body of said text. I love this keyboard, I (probably) will not use another in spite of this, but just be warned that you might eventually have to turn auto-correct off if you type fast like I do / don't rely on the predictive text suggestions.

better but frustrating voice typing and needs landscape
by UniCit on 2020/10/15 16:13
I use it on my ipad and I like it a lot except for a few things. First, the settings screen is ONLY portrait so when I use it on ipad pro, which i use often in landscape with their ‘smart’ kbd, it requires me to rotate my screen which is very inconvenient. It would be minor, but it always dovetails with the next issue. gboard voice typing is very frustrating to use. It often fails immediately when I invoke it with the mic button. It also always seems to require the gboard screen to pop up at first to enable voice typing. This means i get a jarring portrait mode swap then back to my voice entry screen which after a frustratingly random amount of time shows an animation, as if it is listening. Sometimes it takes my voice entries the 1st time, sometimes not. But it ALWAYS wants to stop listening for the slightest pause. Either way, this means I have to invoke the mic button again. This is when it becomes extra difficult. It almost always shows an animation as if it is listening but then it doesnt take my voice at all. Then it happens again. Then the next time, gboard slams into portrait again then it actually starts listening but again wants to time out asap. <SIGH> STILL BETTER THAN SIRI. :)

Bug when switching from landscape to portrait
by avnyc11 on 2020/10/12 05:49
If I'm watching a video in landscape mode and then I get a message and need to respond to it, switching to the message app and rotating to portrait mode causes the keys to become very skinny and it is impossible to type. The only way to fix this is to rotate the device to landscape and then back to portrait again. Please fix this! Thank you

Need Burmese Keyboard
by Onion_Ninja on 2020/10/11 21:38
I am a heavy G-suite user, and now that some google apps are becoming able to be set as default apps (Gmail & Chrome), I’m happy about. And I really want to have Gboard as my default keyboard as well because I love its functions. However, unfortunately, there is no Burmese keyboard on Gboard for iOS while Android has it. And it is a dealbreaker for me since it is my native language. There are also a lot of Burmese iPhone users who are having the same problem as well. Please considering adding Burmese keyboard to the app so we can completely move on to the G-suite. Overall a great keyboard and I would really love to migrate to it completely, but since my native language keyboard is not supported, I’m being prevented from using it.

Swift & Slick
by TunaFish#5 on 2020/10/10 15:07
I used to think SwiftKey was the bomb, but Gboard takes it to the next level. *BIG* advantage over SwiftKey around punctuation characters and in editing existing text intelligently. I'm sold, after less than a day. Update after shifting to a new phone: - why does it prefer "too" when I want to write "to?" Not always, but too often. I must always review my writing.

Better than IOS
by MoFo1111 on 2020/10/08 08:38
Apple , boo
Needs a set of instructions but otherwise great!
by dowell_db on 2020/05/11 18:31
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
by Dirkadirka on 2019/07/28 17:38
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.
Simply the best, thx google
by AstuaryKing22 on 2020/02/23 07:39
I used Swype for years, even once the iPhone days came upon us.. then I randomly got a Pixel 2XL after years of Apple a year ago.. If you're a CHROME user, or mainly default to google(which has been perfect for me) whether you're an iPhone user or "Android"(I've never felt this pixel was a Droid, just a perfected Google phone) you'll know besides losing ichat (if leaving iPhone) that there's really no learning curve or feature displasia, though ichat is almost enough to draw you back alone, it's all I ever missed. I say that to say, the keyboard has been the same as well due to using the Gboard, adding the amazing (and an on/off option for it, as well as other features to fully customize your keyboard to your LOVING ) Swype feature to the already incredible Google Keyboard.. the ONE and hardest thing I find when trying to go back to iPhone, is losing the full auto-fill option for EVERYTHING.. Passwords, saved bank cards, usernames etc it's always instant no thought.. unless I'm wrong google has perfected user functionality in this area, while my Apple remains trusting taking much longer wanting a face recog, thumb print and then sometimes having to pick pswrds from a whole long list, very inconvenient.
Thought this was FANTASTIC news for iPhone owners
by 🐚🔔 on 2019/12/05 02:59
So when I found out Google made a keyboard for my iPhone I was so excited because Apple's keyboard is terrible....but now into my 3rd day after installing it and I'm so irritated with it, I'm to the point of uninstalling! As I am trying to type this review, here and now, my cursor just starts freaking out and trying to keep just zooming back to the very beginning of my message and no matter how many times I try to move the cursor back to where it should be, it just keeps trying to rewind to the beginning like it has a crazy, possessed mind of it's own! It also just randomly adds words, deletes words, and it even started typing one text message COMPLETELY BACKWARDS!!!!! (Not to mention the crazy auto correct nonsense going on--I typed "mind" correctly just now only to have it auto "corrected" to "kind", then "I typed" was changed to "ill tempted" and "not to" (as in not to mention) was changed to motto and mention was changed to MEMTION!!! Come on Google, get it together... We know you can do better than this! My messages and texts, instead of being easier and quicker to be able to type and send, are taking me 3x as long because I'm having to fight it to say what I want it to say and do what I'm trying to do!!! It's HORRIBLE! The idea or the concept is great.... IF YOU WOULD JUST FIX THE BUGS!!!!
Great keyboard, suggested text can be problematic.
by ..BirdBoi.. on 2020/03/23 22:53
The keyboard is great, before iOS added swipe texting it was an amazing feature to have available. It works just fine for me in most aspects, there are just two main issues I run into with the keyboard. Sometimes after I type a key the highlighted part that pops up to show what key you're hitting will not go away once I tap the key and a lot of them will hover and jumble up they keyboard making it difficult or impossible to navigate. Alongside that issue the predictive and suggested text can be annoying at times. Most of the time it's helpful and accurate and helps me type or fixes my spelling errors but there is a somewhat common issue I have where after I type something out it will change it to something different. For example I could type "for the last time" and it will change to "it's the best side", something I don't say while texting. Not sure what causes these issues but I hope to see them addressed in a future update.
Rediculous
by RainnyDayBooks on 2020/01/20 16:05
I text a sentence or paragraph. I proof read it....it's all correct. Then when I press send 98% of the words get changed to words that make no sense, or the get changed to misspelled words. No wonder there are so many grammar errors in everyone's text. It's doing it now...I had to change the word send....it kept changing it to sent. And it keeps changing the word " word" to worry. Please fix this. Update: Are you not concerned at all about your product not working? It's a hot mess of crap you have to go back and fix at least 8 times in one paragraph or sentence because your product changes it. It's your product. Instead of being worried about the bottom line....money , how about a worthy product? I'm getting another texting app like I had before, I never had to change thing. And when it gave me a choice of another word spelled right and I chose it.......it was spelled right....not wrong. Even now the word "was" was changed to would've. Does that make sense? Your one of the biggest tech Giants.....I'm sure you can fix it. And why did it capitalize Giants? I'm not talking about team Giants. I thought it was supposed to predict what you mean. Your app is getting to be a joke.
Amazing keyboard with one major error
by AMM2025 on 2019/12/15 17:40
Overall, this keyboard is amazing. There’s so many unique and innovative features, especially searching emojis, the glide keyboard, google translate, and copying links/contacts/etc., and all the customization available. If you’re looking into downloading tbis keyboard, I’d absolutely push you to do it, regardless of the very occasional bugs. That said, there is one major bug that needs to be fixed. Significantly recently, whenever I go to use the keyboard on any application, it immediately automatically switches the the default iOS English keyboard. Strangely, the glide typing on the iOS keyboard doesn’t work either, which can cause a major inconvenience in certain situations. This bug has happened a lot before, but recently, when I switch back to gBoard, it immediately reverts again to the iOS keybord, so I’m almost completely unable to use the gBoard. However, this keyboard is overall absolutely worth the install, as this bug won’t necessarily affect everyone.
So many bugs.
by TheBirchWoodTree on 2019/11/06 03:57
Would be amazing if it weren’t for the insufferable bugs. Apple changed the way their keyboards used special characters and I didn’t like it, so I wanted a new keyboard. I’ve already sold my soul and everything to Google (because I do like google products a great deal) so I decided to get this. But wow. First, if you type too fast for more than about 10 seconds, it starts freezing. The letter pop ups stop disappearing and typing becomes slow until it fixes after about 10 more seconds.. and then does it again immediately. You can only fix this by completely restarting the app you’re typing in. Second is more major: for no reason, seemingly random, it’ll cause no keyboard to pop up when you click a text field. Just nothing. No apple keyboard, nothing. Nothing can fix this short of turning the device completely off and back on, taking a minute or two. After trying to live with these bugs for the last half a year, telling myself “they’ll fix it soon!” I finally gave in and deleted the app. I hate apple keyboard, typing this review on it now just feels horrible, and I’m going to look for another keyboard right after. I think bugs that big going unfixed for that long is inexcusable.
Keyboard glitching
by M1ght1203 on 2020/07/15 03:36
Ok, let me be honest here. I've been a big fan and supporter of Google and it's products for a long time, but with this keyboard, I must say that I'm slightly disappointed. There is this bug where after using the keyboard for awhile, it starts to stutter and glitch out. The only solution currently that's working for me is to either delete the app and reinstall, or just turn off full access for the keyboard. I know that this bug has been around for a long time and it still has not been fixed. Even still, I would go out of my way to use this keyboard, but sadly, I think it's time for this to go. Unless the developers do something about this God forsaken bug that has been around for ages, I would not look back at this keyboard again. I think it is a smart move for me explore new keyboards such as swift key or other option. With all this said, I am still a big fan of Google and it's products, but I am hoping for a change with this app, so please read this review and take into consideration of these issues. I am looking forward to a bright future for this app.
Suddenly Has Major Problems
by Rcast1986 on 2020/05/22 00:43
Used to love this keyboard, especially for bringing haptic typing feedback to an iPhone keyboard (seriously, I can't go back). The built-in search and gif features are amazing, and I can finally swear like an adult without my phone telling me I meant to reference a water fowl. But over the past few months, it seems like something on Gboard just...broke. And now about 3 out of every 5 sentences I start (when bringing up the keyboard for the first time) won't capitalize the letter unless I backspace first. This is super annoying, but even worse, at least a few times a day, the keyboard will just appear to get disoriented, for lack of a better term. And it's like it thinks the things I'm typing are something else entirely, and it will change every word I type into something else entirely, completely unrelated. It's usually with super common 2 letter words like it, is, an, or, and so forth, and it will KEEP changing those words until I close out of the app or change to the default iPhone keyboard. These issues have unfortunately made it useless to me, as I can't be stopping to battle the autocorrect every few minutes. Super disappointing! Hopefully Google fixes this soon.
Great!... When Bug Free
by dylanbrown7799 on 2020/07/04 06:33
I’ve been using Gboard ever since iOS added the feature of third-party keyboards. It’s got everything I need: slide-typing, a great search bar for quick inquiries, access to millions of gifs, a clean look, easy access to google translate, auto-suggested words, and other useful features that I’m sure I’m forgetting about. It’s become my daily-driver and it’s hard not using it, however lately that’s exactly what I’ve been having to do. I used to run into the occasional glitch where it would seemingly crash and reboot over and over again, but this was on my previous phone (iPhone 6s) and I figured it was just because support for older versions of hardware were slowly being phased out. Unfortunately I’ve been running into that same glitch on my current phone (iPhone 11 Pro) and I know now that my previous excuse no longer applied. TLDR: Fantastic keyboard, but there’s a current frustrating glitch that renders it unusable.
Useless Autocorrect
by Yeonne Greene on 2019/11/07 23:35
The only reason to use this app at all is because Apple refuses to include haptic feedback with their built-in option. The autocorrect almost never catches any words and it constantly adds apostrophes where it shouldn't. The key spacing is inferior on Gboard, which only exacerbates the autocorrect issue; I am constantly pressing "b" or "v" instead of "space" and it Never. Ever. Corrects. It. Not once will it ever fix this typos, so I look up at my message and have to delete it and start over because not only does it not catch this while typing, it also does not recognize the issue when I select that text. Picking the letters out one at a time would be slower than starting over. And the icing that just makes this extra mediocre is that there is no way to set the keyboard background to use the system scheme, so it is always an awkward block of opaque color where Apple's would be a seamlessly integrated and translucent pane. So, yeah. If I did not find keyboards without haptics basically unusable I would not be using Gboard. Hear that Apple? Microsoft? Literally anybody other than HapticKeyboard? Fix this.
GREAT product!!
by Howboutthat? on 2019/01/13 11:23
This works very well on my I-phone!! It's much better (and faster!) than my previous 1-finger method of typing! I was absolutely devastated when I accidentally lost the keyboard for a few days, but finally figured out how to get it back & was very relieved!! It took me awhile to figure out that you don't have to space between words (in most cases) - the keyboard automatically does it for you. Sometimes you don't have to put in the entire word. Just start the word, & the keyboard will automatically finish it for you. It IS a good idea to get used to reading as you type, though, or you may end up with "feel" instead of "fell" (or vice versa). Double letters sometimes cause problems. The keyboard usually gives you 2 or 3 choices of words if it puts in the wrong word. The more you use this keyboard, the better you'll be at using it, & the more of a fan you'll be!! Have FUN with this keyboard!
Glitchy and Laggy since iOS 13
by Mike.S1261 on 2020/06/11 20:49
Prior to iOS 13, GBoard was the best keyboard out there for iPhone. In fact, it still is in spite of the issues. But, ever since updating to iOS 13 (the version of iOS where Apple introduced their own Swipe to Type keyboard), GBoard has been very problematic. If I type a long email or message on FB Messenger, eventually the keyboard starts lagging to the point of not being usable. I have to save my message or email, restart the app, and then I get some more time before lag returns. Then periodically, once a month or so, it requires a complete delete/restart/reinstall, or the keyboard gets stuck in a "crash and reload" cycle over and over and over again with no cure other than deleting it and having to reconfigure my custom keyboard colors again upon reinstallation. I swear Apple must be sabotaging it now that they have their own Swipe to Type keyboard. But GBoard is so so much better than the native keyboard so I have to deal with the issues. Every update I hope it got resolved, but no such luck.
"A Boy and His GBoard". (Oprah Stewart gives this a must read!)
by Reveiw Stu on 2018/10/07 08:52
The swipe keyboard is so fast if you take the time to learn it! Search bar makes for quick info lookup. I also love the gif finder. Only wish is a better 3D touch cursor. If you press and hold down on the keyboard it goes blank and can be used as a free moving cursor. But that's where that journey ends unfortunately. The iPhone keyboard, if you press more firmly while in cursor mode, highlights and selects text. Could not do that with GBoard. Hopefully I am just an idiot. I don't see Google doing the ball on that. You can personalise the background with your own picture of choice. Makes iPhone keyboard seem kinda rudimentary. Love it Google. You guys rock! Now if they could just make Google tasks have a time with the date my whole life could be synced with Google lol but that is for another time. Seriously. Get Gboard. You owe it to your fingers. And your poor vocabulary. Just saying.
Gboard
by cewstorm on 2019/01/26 05:06
Good app. Some of the glide typing is easy off and I am not sure if it is self learning, which it does not seem to be since it continues to put in the same wrong words every time even when it is just after our later. That is a big issue for me. Making me wanting to go back to Swift key. This either need to really be juiced up out you will lose me a as that is how I've been typing since having the original Droid Razor.... So not changing. Also..? Sometimes it just seems to change from good typing to regular typing in the middle of a message not sure why it what I hit and should not have do that I can at the very least there it just changed from glide typing to regular not sure why, anyhow not sure what I got so I can avoid it change back of need. Where is detailed manual? Thanks and still had fighting change but many of these issues neg to be addressed very soon. Thanks in advance for your help and coding changes. Best Chris Winters
Well, I've used it long enough to not want to go back but...
by Choklatz on 2018/07/06 23:36
Take a guess what I might have meant in the next paragraph. I typed this with the gboard and purposely didn't correct the typos so you can see what I mean. I spend so much time fixing this stupid board but I'm spoiled on swiping. (I corrected above. Below is usual results. I am a college professor. I am not illiterate as this might suggest.) I've been using this keyboard for a pretty long time. So long I can't guess. I am spilled on swing and just do it automatically now so if I end up on the native iPhone keyboard I end up with one letter of the word because I automatically stay don't. But this keyboard if Buffy. I wants to hang up on one letter and give you just the first letter or the number behind it. I have tried to press note lightly, more carefully, you name it and it still hands up. It also learns your ring which means that it learns your most common wrong series and keeps putting them up as the most likely thing you meant. It also intuits the strangest words that ai would never use. I is almost always spelled ai. It drives me nuts and wastes time.
Discriminatory towards left handed ppl. Almost Perfect (Please adjust for left handed people!!)
by Dorvinci876 on 2020/01/31 23:09
Such high discrimination against left handed people. So only Right handed people live in this world?! Come on man... The one handed keyboard shifts to the right and no way option to get it on the left. And the space-bar is waay too small and is built to the right. So lefties like me struggle to type because I keep hitting the emoji icon when I'm typing fast becuz I space with my left thumb. Come on guys please fix this. Lefties are real people too. The keyboard is almost perfect and I love it but please just fix these minor adjustments and y'all would be the best around for sure. Very good keyboard but very annoying. I'm left handed!!! So my suggestion is... Remove the globe icon that switches between keyboards (becuz apple already has that built in by default), and use that bit of real estate to extend the space-bar access to make it easier for left handed people like myself who has the habit of spacing with their left thumb. I rarely write reviews but I really hope someone will see this and make the adjustment. PLEASE!!!
A truly superior swiping experience
by Lewis is already taken on 2019/10/18 23:56
I've been using Gboard on my iPhone 8 for many months because I wanted to be able to type by swiping, a feature the iOS 12 keyboard lacks. I was happy to learn that iOS 13 has added it, but Gboard really is the superior option. It's much better at interpreting my swipes, and almost always offers the word I wanted as an alternative if it guesses wrong. I don't want to gripe about the native iOS 13 keyboard swiping feature, but I have to say I felt spoiled by Gboard when I tried out the iOS 13 kyeboard after updating. What is probably the single best feature of Gboard is the ability to move the cursor horizontally in text, one character at a time, by swiping on the spacebar. This feature alone would make Gboard worth using, even if it weren't better at interpreting my swipes. Its overall quality truly makes anything else frustrating to use by comparison!
Almost perfect
by Mrlemmers on 2019/05/16 16:28
Gboard is the iOS keyboard that Apple should aim to make theirs. It does everything that the stock keyboard does and then some. It has standard tap typing similar to the stock keyboard, it has voice dictation, and even swipe typing. It does all of these things really well. Recently they also added vibration feedback which is something Apple really should add to the stock keyboard. About the only thing which this keyboard could use some more additions to would be still better theme support. Currently they allow you to change and create a light keyboard theme. They don't allow you to create a dark mode theme however. With the iPhone X series devices especially it's important that the keyboard looks correct in both light and dark. Currently with custom themes though, you can really only use them in light environments with the keyboard looking proper. Otherwise Gboard is great, really doesn't have anything text prediction wise which still needs fixing.
90% great, but horrible predictive text is a deal breaker
by WrongWriter on 2018/07/27 01:07
The layout and abilities of Gboard are so superior to the competition. But, as so many other reviewers have pointed out, the predictive text when using the glide entry is TERRIBLE. For example, when gliding my finger from T to H to E to enter the word THE Gboard will frequently enter THREE instead. THE is probably in the top 1% most frequently used words in English. Why would the program logic select THREE over THE, especially when it makes no sense in the context of the other words in the preceding and following it? I have seen other keyboards that will actually go back and change a word it suggested 3 or 4 words earlier in the sentence once the context of the sentence becomes clear. If things like that are possible why can't Google fix this ongoing problem? I believe the problem had to be addressed in some fashion. The frustration levels I'm reaching over having my flow interrupted every 5 to 7 words to backspace out another wrong word have me ready to jump to a competitor.
Changed my life!, but one little issue
by BronzeRecluse on 2019/06/14 22:58
Gboard is fantastic! I will never go back to a regular keyboard again. The swiping is very accurate. Even if I miss a letter a little bit, Gboard still knows the word. Also it has learned the way I speak so the predictive text is always right. You can talk-to-type and it always understands what I am trying to say. I have English and Spanish Gboard and it's completely wonderful in both languages. My favorite feature is that you can type a word to find emojis! If I type 'heart' all the heart options appear, which makes it easier than searching through all the Emojis. My only complaint is everytime I update the app, it stops being my main keyboard. I keep having to turn the keyboard on and off in my settings for it to show up again. That is very annoying because I love Gboard and always want it to be the only keyboard I use. Please fix that glitch. But other than that, this app is fantastic!
Great things but...
by megdelm on 2018/01/23 11:49
I love the ability to google search, use speech-to-text, customize the photo on the keyboard.. there are so many things I love but the app just stopped working. The keyboard won’t show up sometimes. Sometimes, when trying to swipe, the keyboard decides to get sticky and sink off the screen. I just uninstalled it. I will be trying Swift key for a little while to see if that works better. Keyboard used to work really well but newest update is bad bad bad. Also, it would be awesome if the app could remember the words I actually use everyday rather than the misspelled version I accidentally typed in one time. Really needs a way to edit dictionary which words are suggested. ALSO! Please suggest emoji replacement as predicted for next word: I love adding emojis that come up in predictive text bar but I want the option to add them AFTER adding the actual word I’m typing. Please update so that I don’t have to type the same word in its entirety to get the emoji to be suggested again. Predictive text needs to be smarter!
Way better than others, sub-par autocorrect
by unhappy! 👎🏻 on 2020/03/22 19:43
This keyboard has so many helpful and cool features! Many steps above the regular iPhone keyboard and others on the app store in my opinion. That being said, the autocorrect AI is lacking a bit. I downloaded the app many months ago and one day it crashed and froze in any app I opened. I redownloaded the app and the problem was fixed, but it had to re-learn my typing habits. It still hasn't picked up some things and it's been months since the redownload. Names and acronyms it still struggles with. I often don't capitalize acronyms such as "idk," but the AI hasn't picked up that I retype its correction of "IDK" back to "idk" every single time. I didn't have to do this before the redownload. This happens with uncommon names and other acronyms too. It's not enough for me to return to my normal iPhone keyboard, but it's very annoying. Besides that, the autocorrect is pretty good and every other aspect of the keyboard is amazing.
Nothing like is green guy counterpart
by nimrod29 on 2019/05/15 03:28
Nothing like Gboard on its native platform. The green guy if you are still lost. The long press short cuts are not the same. It's basically like the stock iOS keyboard but you can swipe. It doesn't figure out what words I want as intuitively from swiping like it's version and the green guy's platform that I use as a daily phone. There are no long press short cuts on the A-L keys and Z-M keys instead it force touches and activates iOS's cursor mover which the spacebar already supports by sliding back and forth on. The space bar isn't has good as good as the force touch option but still 2 ways to activate the same feature I'll take my long press shortcuts cover force touch curser mover any day. Built in gif and memes are nice and don't have to use Apple's version which is not as good nor intuitive to use. TLDR: Better than iOS keyboard? Yes but they could have made it a better one to one port from the green guy's platform. I'm sure apple app policies hinder it some but it could still be better.
Almost there. Gboard should buy Swype
by iLoved5152 on 2018/10/09 05:10
....now that Swype is no longer in the mobile keyboard market. They were absolutely the most accurate predictave text, even if you swiped pretty lazily. I find myself having to re-swipe words slower and V-E-R-Y carefully, which gets annoying for the same words over and over. I feel Swype had a way better learn-the-user algorithm as far as what we were trying to type. Also, please add in punctuation swipes. Doesn't even have to be for all of them, but for ? ! ' , it would help. Like from were the exclamation point would be (letters B-N) to the spacebar. It would be especially great for commas, since they're so frequently-used and having to switch to the numbers & symbols keyboard so frequently is annoying. But I do like this more than swiftkey. The search within keyboard is amazing and so helpful. Think about how often we use our phones for searching information. It's genius!
Originally it was great, Not so much anymore
by jdal15 on 2019/11/14 14:25
I loved this app when I first downloaded it. I was using SwiftKey, and once I finally convinced myself to try this one, it had exactly what I wanted that SwiftKey & Apple’s Keyboard didn’t have... HAPTIC FEEDBACK ON KEY PRESS! However, it seems like this app is a little behind with the Apple iOS updates because lately my GBoard has been glitching like crazy. Initially I had no problems & now several times a day I will have to “kill” the app I am using, specifically when I’m typing on the GBoard, because it glitches so bad that all the keys pop up & stay up, blocking all other keys. Maybe consider taking a very close look at the app & updating it to the ABSOLUTE BEST of Google’s ability so that it will work correctly with any iPhone/iOS update. I am going to uninstall GBoard & will not be reinstalling until I see that there were a few updates to this app. I use Google/Google Apps for EVERYTHING, So the soon this is fixed, the happier I’ll be and the more I will recommend it.
I LOVE THIS APP (but a couple things to add)
by Eshaal 。◕‿◕。 on 2019/09/09 20:22
This app provides you with so many cool types of keyboards and faces to send to people other than bitmoji. Like here are some examples of the faces I am talking about:༼ つ ◕_◕ ༽つ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)ಠ_ಠ. As I am writing this review about Gboard, I am using a keyboard. But I only have one suggestion, I think you guys should add one keyboard that allows you to draw,type,color, and many more. Overall, this app is amazing and I think you should have it too. I would also like it if that the keys weren't as small as they are. I have a IPhone 10r and the keyboard is not reaching to the bottom of the screen. I would like it if they added a setting to change the keyboard size. Another suggestion is that I also would like it if we could have a couple more minis like a cute minis, halloween minis, etc. But except all of that, this app is great and I would recommend it!! 😀
Front facing numbers are here
by you assign the nickname on 2018/04/15 03:19
The addition of the embedded secondary number row on the main keyboard is great. Clean up the voice to text recording interface to engage and disengage as smoothly as Apple's native keyboard and Gboard will be the better of the two hands down. Google's voice to text accuracy is already overwhelmingly more than Apple's efforts which makes little sense as Siri and Safari are powered by Google search, perhaps there is an unknown difference in voice to text cognition that has an extremely negative effect on Apple's frankly horrible voice to text capability. I'm on the edge of giving up iMessage and FaceTime because Apple's voice to text capability is so poor. I believe that is fairly self explanatory as to the prospect of future decisions. Sorry about the length, I have been unbelievably frustrated with Apple's simply terrible voice to text capability for quite a long while.
It hurts to use it at times
by SCBsr on 2020/07/21 22:14
I use the voice part of the keyboard, I have to because I’m starting to lose my eyesight and I can’t type anymore. The voice part of this keyboard has gotten atrocious since I got an iPhone and I added it to my iPhone. I have typed words or said words that are not the words that it came up with. I actually send voice and it typed in boys, this is just now when I did this. So as you can see if you use the voice part of this you’re going to absolutely get frustrated and want to throw it through the window because nobody’s gonna understand what you’re talking about. We use the slide or the typing it works absolutely fine and that’s why I got a three. So now when you read this in your thinking wow this doesn’t make any sense it’s probably because of the voice part of it trying to type what it wants to type and none of it makes a bit of sense because it doesn’t understand what I’m saying 9 out of 10 times.
Great Keyboard, major flaw
by Pocket thief on 2020/02/02 00:08
I love gboard and would love to use it over apples poor keyboard, but this glitch keeps the keyboard from even popping up on ios 13. Never had these issues before, so I dont know if its on google or apple but this is beyond frustrating. I JUST WANT GBOARD BACK apples keyboard autocorrection is atrocious. Edit: not really sure what I did but simply reinstalled it and gave it full access to keyboards again and it seems to be working again. I think the iOS update may have messed with settings or something, but Gboard seems to be working fine now. It's far better than iOS's standard keyboard, especially the auto correct and not having the awful predictive typing that apple thinks actually works (it doesn't it literally changes words to things that make absolutely NO sense and is infuriating to actually type with)
I loved it on Samsung, sadly another thing I dislike about this stupid iPhone
by Muchloveria on 2020/05/02 13:19
Beggars can't be choosers. But they can be critics! I am so grateful my parents helped me out when my Samsung was stolen. But they had to get me an iPhone, even though they know I HATE iOS/ apple (save for iPods - though they are cheaply made and shouldn't cost so much...), because of it being the best deal. And now all my apps stink was much as the phone! My Google keyboard doesn't learn my patterns anymore, I can't hold down a button to get my ?!.,&$ — all the beloved expressions I have been accustomed to pressing fast & effortlessly, now w/an iPhone takes extra time to find AND it certainly DOES MATTER when your writing or doing eBay ads, trust I notice this difference! And the iOS keyboard keeps annoyingly popping up at random instead of my Google preference. And now after the latest update the Google keyboard is sluggish and doesn't follow my swypes at all!! Ugh I now not only dislike iOS, I despise it!
Replaced the default keyboard with Gboard
by Playstaycj on 2018/09/04 16:41
I have an iPhone 6 ... Don't judge me. I'm amazed at how fast and non-buggy this application is. Well done, Google! It's great. Like, objectively great. Everything is right at the tip of your thumb. Having Google search, maps, emojis and weather all integrated in the same space sounds like a lot until you see how crisp it all is. No, it will not correctly predict a given word correctly 100% of the time. Nothing does. But 85-90% is still very achievable. The keyboard always suggests three replacements after a swipe, just in case it was wrong the first time. And most people aren't willing to admit that the errors start with them. If you find a word that's not populating, either slow down your gesture (especially on words with double letters), check your spelling (very common mistake) or transition and type.
The best alt keyboard: could be better
by Jtchurch on 2018/04/09 15:59
I love the sweeping ease and Google integrations. There is a lot to improve though. The app's biggest weakness is its poor predictive capabilities, both with words and emojis. Gboard will frequently insert a word that doesn't make any sense in the sentence and is sometimes not even a common word. At times I have to type the word out letter by letter because even careful swiping is not showing the correct word (even though it would be the next obvious word in my sentence). It is also very weak when suggesting emojis from the writing dialogue (without having to switch to the emoji interface). In both of these ways, Apple wins hands down. And let's not forget that the easiest way to write is not to write at all, but dictate and the default Apple keyboard has much better integration and ease of use their too. Once Apple adds swiping to their keyboard, there will be little need for Gboard.
User Friendly
by zlilbit on 2019/02/17 09:12
Much easier and better features to use than the standard iPhone keyboard app. The Gboard text predictions are more accurate and the Swype feature actually works correctly. The iPhone cursor is a nightmare to use in order to edit horrible predictions or autocorrect words that don't match up at all with the original word. Gboard is a better product. BUT in order to use dictation and word prediction, we need to give all access to Gboard. iPhone standard keyboard apparently also requires all access and please read the small print on the data it collects, frightening. So change the settings to your needs and if you're smart, don't use your phone for any transactions that exposes your financial accounts or personal detailed information. Go old school and take yourself off the grid when it comes to bank accounts and personal information.
Getting worse
by MTHDmusic on 2017/10/20 22:02
When I first downloaded the Gboard over a year ago, it was awesome. It was exactly what I wanted in a phone keyboard. But I swear every update has slowed down the keyboard's performance as well as making it more glitchy. Oftentimes autocorrect is turned off for some reason, being completely unpredictable as to when the keyboard decides to work correctly. Also there is a strange deleting issue where if you are deleting a word at the end of a sentence, the preceding word somehow jumbles up letters with the word you are deleting. Not even sure how that is possible. But yeah Google is definitely slipping up on these Gboard updates. UPDATE: Changing review to two stars because this krapboard keeps getting worse. Maybe I'm a masochist for continuing to use it. But the fact that it will change correctly and deliberately typed out words to completely different words, all the while leaving misspelled words is just ridiculous. I thought Google was capable of more than this ever-degrading piece of poopoo.
Great idea if it worked. Clumsy and buggy.
by FogCityNative on 2020/03/10 16:55
iPhone user here. IOS 13.4 I have been using iTranslate but once I started translating the result back to English I found their translation engine was horrible compared to Google Translate. So I was happy to discover Google GBoard now had Google Translate. Too bad it doesn’t work well. Cursor problems abound. Tried to place the cursorbetween two words that needed a space added between them. No matter how much I pressed the space bar, it would not insert the space. The interface is clutzy. Compare the GBoard interface to iTranslate. ITranslation: Highlight my text with select all and cut to the clipboard. Switch to iTranslate KB where there are two buttions. Translate from clipboard or translate from text typed or pasted into the iTranslate text box. After translation, the inset button appears moving the translation back into the text box of the app for sending. One tap on the icon swaps the source and target languages. iTranslate understands that once I start a message with a language pair, say English to Spanish for example, the language choices for other languages are hidden. The program assumes if I'm conmunicating with a Spanish speaker for example, I will continue with that pair for that message. ITranslate has a superior interface but lousy translations. GBoard is just the opposite. Accurate translations but a clumbsy interface. I will happily switch once Google gets GBoard working with a smooth workflow.
Ok
by Ryan needham on 2020/04/09 03:36
I've been using Gboard since the application came out. I love the feel of the swipe more than any other app or even apples new standard keyboard integrated swipe. I also use the search feature extremely often along with the emoji search bar. Both super useful functions. Only reason I didn't rate it five stars is because all of a sudden, my Gboard glitches as if it's refreshing, but it not only makes the keyboard disappear for a brief second every couple seconds, but it undoes the word I was in the middle of swiping causing me to race to finish the next word before it bugs out again. I haven't been using the keyboard due to this bug but recently discovered if I turn off full access (this DOES disable the search functionality of the keyboard) I can still swipe at least. Please fix this issue as I can't see myself going back to another keyboard.
Amazingly good swiping, so-so tapping
by Dak Kris on 2018/03/07 22:08
While I'm sure there are many decent keyboard replacement apps for iOS these days, in my opinion none is better than Google's Gboard. The speed and accuracy of swipe typing with this keyboard is simply astounding. It absolutely amazes me how often it gets the word I'm wanting correct, even oftentimes when the word is long or even with my family's names (it even automatically added the apostrophe to family just now 😀). Finally one-handed typing on iOS is a pleasure and not a chicken-pecking pain. Add to this the built-in Google search functionality and emoji search, etc. and this app has everything the main Apple keyboard does, but with the huge added function of swipe typing (come on Apple!) The ONLY area that Gboard falls short is, surprisingly, when you type with the traditional tap-typing style. It tends to get my words wrong a lot and even autocorrects to really odd words that make no sense. With the stock Apple keyboard I can tap along and it will usually correct the words properly as I'm typing. Unfortunately Gboard does not do this very reliably and is more frustrating to use when tap typing. Consequently I usually just revert back to one-handed swipe typing because it honestly works like a dream, but I hope that Google will improve the tap typing functionality so I can reliably use either method with minimal frustration.
PLEASE FIX BUGS- Otherwise great keyboard
by Dwindle 2012 on 2017/10/25 05:11
I would have given this keyboard 5 stars 2 months ago, but since the iOS 11 update it has been terribly buggy. Most annoying is that the "L" key about 75% of the time does not register, or it will for whatever reason register as a backspace. One particularly bad instance was when I clicked the "L" once and it continually backspaced my whole message. Another annoying issue is even though I have the Google keyboard set as my default, it will default to the Apple keyboard (not in any specific app) and when I go to select the other keyboard, it simply does not register until I repeat the process 3-5 times. It's a relatively minor problem I know, but when you're expecting a keyboard to work and it doesn't, it quickly becomes aggravating. The functionality and features of this keyboard are phenomenal, but these bugs are getting out of hand, and recent updates haven't helped any.
Regressing updates
by KiwiWatermelon🥝🍉 on 2019/11/18 02:25
I've used Gboard for a long time, and I like the swipe keyboard function. I would abandon it now for the regular iPhone keyboard that allows for swiping, but that punctuation key and it's Google search and emojis keep me from doing that. On my old phone, Gboard was the only keyboard I had, but since I got a new phone, the Chinese keyboard I used is gone. Seriously. You have Hong Kong Chinese, traditional/Taiwanese, but not Mandarin simplified? There are many more people who need that keyboard. And then since the Chinese keyboard is the default for notifications and passwords, I have to use the regular Apple keyboard too. The voice typing is also annoying because it switches to the Gboard app and takes ten seconds to do it, so I never use it. This could be a limitation brought by Apple, but it's annoying. Gboard is nice because it has a lot of functions, but it lacks some very important ones and I still have to use the provided Apple keyboards.
Please help with Russian keyboard!
by chocolate.milk.is.good on 2020/09/26 05:14
Hi I'd like to let you know of an issue I've recently experienced. When I switched to my Russian keyboard, I was presented with an array of bizarre characters. When in uppercase, they are weird forms of the letter D with slashes through it, and additional sub characters such as fractions and stars. When in uppercase I have similar characters presented but instead of D's they're N's. I am using a 2nd gen iPhone SE 2020, and had recently updated it to iOS 14. I removed the Russian keyboard from gboard and reinstalled it, reset my phone multiple times, checked all my settings but couldn't find anything out of the ordinary that could explain this phenomenon. Other than that, I've been using gboard for several years without any problems, and love the app. Please help me out and try to look into this. Thank you!
2/5
by hjfudiejehfhd on 2020/06/05 14:39
App is great, I've had it for over a year. I love the built in search engine and the customizability. However, over the past few months I’ve experienced too many bugs. One bug is auto-correct. Sometimes I would type the correct word, but it would be changed to something completely different which can be very annoying . Another bug is that the keyboard sometimes types words backwards (literally). Another bug, which im experiencing right now, is that the keyboard seems to “jump” up and down every 5 seconds. It almost seems like its refreshing and I cannot type full senteces without it deleting words. Finally, a bug that I prominently see is when I open keyboard , all I see is a blank board. The keys do not appear until I fully restart the app. These bugs are making it extremely difficult to continue using this app and I think its the best keyboard app aside of these bugs. Please look into these bugs, it would be greatly appreciated.
Great, but...
by No Nonsense Reviews on 2019/12/06 23:24
The keyboard is amazing! I love it. The only problem is that ever since iOS 13 has come out, it has been very glitchy. At first, swipe type would glitch out ever once in a while (no big deal), but as of yesterday, it officially stopped working. I have no idea how to fix it. When I restart my phone, it works for about a minute then goes away. I have no more ideas on how to fix the problem and I can’t survive typing normally, I need my swipe type from Google. I definitely advise that you get the keyboard because it is very great and knowing Google, the glitches will be fixed eventually. (I typed this normally without swipe, so please excuse any typos that my fat fingers may have made). Thank you - please let me know if there are any fixes to the problem that I may not have tried.
Totally unusable with iOS 13.
by Capwinsdotcom on 2020/03/10 03:05
GBoard was my preferred keyboard for 3-1/2 years. I downloaded it the week it came out, in May of 2016... I don’t know what happened with iOS 13 on the iPhone XS Max, but Google just can’t get it right. The keyboard glitches, it flashes, it automatically switches between the other keyboards. Totally unusable. Can’t even type a sentence. This has been going on since September of 2019! It’s six months later! With every single update (of both iOS & GBoard) that came along, I have hoped & prayed the issues will be fixed. I uninstalled it. Reinstalled it. Uninstalled it. Reinstalled it. This time, it’s staying off my phone for good. I’m tired of this. Between buying a $1500+ phone, that’s only a year old... And a software development company that has a market cap of over 836 BILLION DOLLARS, this is Amateur Hour at the Apollo. Users shouldn’t have to get totally disgusted & waste hours of their time trying to fix your keyboard. And six months hoping, praying, and waiting for a fix! I’m sorry... There’s no excuse. This is unacceptable on Google’s part.
It is better than iPhone's new slide board
by RicardoRacer on 2019/12/12 02:46
I don't know for sure but I think the Gboard is more accurate. I think it is operator error when it makes a mistake -- I moved wrong or misspelled the word. It takes getting used to typing this way. I tried awhile ago and gave up. I turned on keyboard clicks which is annoying at times especially when I have to type a word. But I have learned when I hear a double click, it means I most likely made a mistake. And have to look at the output. It has also challenged my spelling faculties. I am sticking with it this time to see if I can get faster and more accurate. That remains to be seen. I haven't clocked it in a head to head comparison but so far my perception is Gboard wins. There are a couple of quirks. Screen darken doesn't work on the number screen. It is such a habit to go to another screen to type a number that I didn't even notice the press-and-hold-for-a-number feature on the qwerty row. And The voice dictation is not as smooth as iPhone but I can live with that. The screen doesn't advance sometimes so you have to manually scroll down to see what you typed. All and all, I think it is faster and more accurate. It is definitely better at offering option and has come up with some surprising guesses when I make a mid course correction in my slide to make a word. Clicking away here.
Slows down on latest iOS
by Toadsith on 2020/04/07 02:58
Update: April 6th, the recent update didn't work, and so I'm still stuck with Apple's inferior swipe keyboard. Please fix the freezing and lagging. If it helps, it is noticeably worse in Snapchat for some reason. Original Review: It'll work fine for most of the day and then it starts slowing down, letter previews stay up on the keyboard, which means the swipe stops working. it'll stop loading the GIF previews and even stop copying them or letting you scroll through them. It gets progressively slower responding until it is unusable and I have to switch over to the iOS default keyboard for a couple hours or literally reboot the phone. It's been doing this for the last couple months. I keep hoping the app will get updated as it is my favorite keyboard by far. No more "ducking" "shut" in my text messages and I love the fast GIF searching, but we desperately need an update for the current iOS.
I love Gboard!
by apfitzg2 on 2018/07/13 06:27
I love Gboard so much now! I tried it when it first came out and wasn't a fan, especially because I'm picky about aesthetic, but it looks perfect and works perfectly now. I love the ability to quickly swipe up for numbers and I love how I can just search for everything using the keyboard so I don't have to keep switching apps. I'm not sure about others, but the predictive text works awesome for me. I just had to get used to it (which was within a couple of hours!). Putting the voice to text button in the space bar was a really good idea, too, in my opinion! With the integrated Apple keyboard I kept hitting the button by accident. I do find myself hitting the keyboard switch button sometimes, though, but the advantages of this keyboard outweigh the disadvantages by far.
Annoying learning, lagging type, bizarre predictive corrections

I've been using Gboard for nearly three years. There's a lot that I love, especially having search/maps/gifs capacity built into the keyboard. The idea of the talk to text is great but it lags because it has to go to a whole new screen taking sometimes as long as 5 seconds before I can start talking and then taking equally as long to return to the original screen. The most persistent issue is vocabulary learning. Every. Single. Update. Leads to a period of a few days where customized text added to my dictionary is lost or forgotten, shortcuts added to iOS is unavailable, and swipe text seems to be less exact than before. Very annoying. The most obnoxious issue is ex-post-facto predictive text correction. I type a word I presume the Gboard won't have in its dictionary, correct its spelling, select it in the predictive bar and then when other words are added to the sentence Gboard decides to change the entirety of that word and/or the entire sentence to suit some bizarre prediction. What?! Why?! Gboard also crashes certain apps and is a huge battery draining app, similar to chrome on any device. It makes me wonder if this is because Google is trying to pull data and resources from all over the device. I like the convenience but I'm seriously considering eliminating it
