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.

Nice keyboard
Constantly broken
by CS010101 on 2021/05/04 08:25
So broken. How it's broken changes with each install. Currently it's refusing to save anything to my dictionary the second I close out of any app.
Voice dictation is bad
by Falloneus on 2021/05/03 17:05

Great keyboard, some bugs
by soupmatt4808 on 2021/04/30 17:46
Been using Gboard for years. Pros: it has a thinner line to show your finger path so it was more precise than Swiftkey (at least when I tried that years ago) or today's Apple keyboard (which has no line). I love the period and emoji buttons for quick access. Great work to the product and engineering team there. Cons: whenever I add an event in the iOS calendar app, typing on Gboard doesn't do anything at first - I have to cancel and retry and then it will work. Also when I tell Gboard to stop suggesting a word, it doesn't remember (e.g. it keeps trying to suggest BTW when I type btw even though I've told it not to). Minor inconveniences, would love to see them fixed but overall great keyboard.

Missing from Serbian AppStore
by DaliborSuh on 2021/04/29 07:22
This app is missing from Serbian iOS AppStore for more than a year since Serbian iOS AppStore has been enabled and all the developers have been informed in March 2020. All developers have enabled their apps but most of google apps are not available on Serbian iOS AppStore so we cannot download or update our apps or write feedback, except here, and only when we manually change our regions to us and lose all our paid subscriptions in order to be able to send feedback through the AppStore . So this is the only way we, Serbian users, can share our feedback. Official support does not want to help us and we pay for services we cannot use. So, please, inform your devs to enable this apps ob Serbian iOS AppStore ASAP. We will soon reach out to media to make wider attention to this issue and google discrimination of Serbian users if not fixed soon. Thanks.
Keyboard 4 life!
by david Beckham's son on 2021/04/28 23:55
I prefer to switch between language with globe icon, but Gkeyboard doesn't support this feature except this it's really good! Translate+Google search+GIF searching are most likely features by far
As mentioned multiple times - Emoji update
by ChriSuarez on 2021/04/28 16:36
Please push an update so that the keyboard reflects the most up to date emojis released for iOS. I prefer this keyboard over the default iOS keyboard...but I'm not content with not being able to use the new emojis.

update the emojis bruh
by supsaranaa on 2021/04/27 03:12
gboard is in dire need of a emoji update. quite unfortunate how it hasn’t updated to reflect that and now with iOS 14.5 rolling out more new emojis, gboard needs to get it together and update accordingly.
Meh
by Yettavr6 on 2021/04/26 15:11
Had high hopes for this keyboard after having Android for years and absolutely hating iOS autocorrect and Siri dictation, but this keyboard is so frustrating to use. First, the dictation is basically usless because it stops listening if you pause for more than half a second. It also switches apps when you press the voice button for some reason. When you try to use dictation twice in a row (because it stopped listening) it gives a "something went wrong". Also, I hate how small the spacebar is because of the settings button. Let us turn the settings button off, we can change the settings in the Gboard app.
Needs an Update
by Joshnniuq on 2021/04/26 14:31
It's good but it's quite glitchy and the emojis are out of date. much overdue for an update.

Android to iPhone, apples to oranges
by swimrz on 2021/04/24 19:17
CAUTION: If you were a Gboard user on Android, you will be severely disappointed by the functionality of Gboard on the iPhone. It's an improvement over Apple's keyboard only in that SOME symbols may be accessed quickly and there are more options for GIFs. Long-press does not exist, case cannot be changed after a letter or word is typed without deleting and retyping. The list goes on. Give it a try, you've been warned.
Great app

Maybe the worst predictive software of all time. Keyboard keys are not sensitive enough so it constantly gets the wrong key for you. The only reason I have this is the Google button makes gifs really easy. Wish I could combine the G button with the apple keyboard.

Voice input now broken
by PDP_11 on 2021/04/11 15:03
I use GBoard as Apple's voice input in languages other than US English is terrible. Sadly, Google hasn't updated this is some time and now iOS 14.4.2 has completely broken voice input on GBoard regardless of language. Any voice input puts whatever app you're using into the background and opens the GBoard settings app. Then, that is put into the background and you get back to your original app. Sometimes you can now speak one voice input session (and only one) and sometimes you get "oops, something went wrong". Sadly for us users, we are made to suffer in the conflict between Apple and Google.

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!!!!
My Gboard is fun
by michcu on 2021/01/27 16:03
I love this keyboard and it functions so much better than the stock one in my iPhone. Since the new update it seems off. When I search emojis for example "star" not one emoji comes up. It's not suggesting then either 🤷🏼‍♀️ I think Every once in a while it glitches. I clear out the data and it's like new and precise. Only reason I gave 4 is because since this last ios update my keyboard keeps getting stuck on Español. Lol I'm bilingual but for the people who don't speak Español it's a problem. So it takes me twice as long to type in English because it keeps correcting my language to Española. It's given me some good laughs but my clients are not always as amused. Anyway, I have full faith it'll get fixed next update. I'm a Gboard user for life so I'm excited to see the next board. Let me just say with the two things I mentioned the Gboard is still so much more than any other board. It's able to read my movement more precisely, it's more convenient, types quick(other board now feel show), it's in time with current day demands for personal and business, and the gif searches are hilarious.
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.
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.
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!
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.
Suggestion Regarding a Useful User Setting
by markthereefshark on 2021/03/14 21:48
Hey Gboard Team! With regards to a design suggestion, I often find myself using the three word recommendations that dynamically appear as I type. I'm wondering if I can turn off the auto-spacing effect that inserts a space into the textfield after I select a recommended word. The reason I would like the ability to turn this setting off is because I find myself consistently modifying a recommended word to fit the correct part of speech (e.g. "correct" appears as a recommended word but I want to change it to read "correctly"), and I find that having to delete the auto-inserted space to reduce my overall typing speed. This isn't a hugeeeee issue, but I'm constantly wondering if I should just switch back to the default iOS keyboard ;) Sorry I didn't rate it a full 5 stars. Thought a lesser than perfect rating may have a higher chance at being reviewed by the team. I love the product though! Keep up the good work!
"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.
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!!!
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.
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!
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.
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.
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!
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
G board
by Nettajulle on 2021/02/22 20:55
❤️❤️❤️ love Gboard keyboard. It's my go -to keyboard. I have 14 different keyboards. I always find myself tapping the globe symbol and going back to Gboard! Developers should look towards more customizations to create your own keyboard. Most of the regular skins already in app are not really my style. I mostly create my own skins using cute photos or wallpapers. NEEDS: Fonts, more key colors , borders around keys are too transparent. Please add Special key effects. Totally worth it to download and use everyday! I absolutely love this keyboard app!!!! It's missing some things... Like long press on the second and third row keys should open the corresponding punctuation. I say this bcz in certain forms and sites the convenient period button disappears and you're left tapping back and forth between 123 and ABC. Wastes time and makes Swype typing awkward. Having said that this keyboard has the most accurate swipe type keyboard and predictive text suggestions!!!! Will rate 5 stars when some features suggested or others are added to this app. It's been more than six months from my last review. All perfect since the last update. The only thing I would like to see is the ability to customize our keyboards better. I love all my keyboard skins but I would love a way to.... add more personalization. Google is free AND awesome. Thank you to the developers who keep bringing the magic to third party keyboards in iOS 14.4!!!
Great utilitie, just a few problems
by watermelon_guy on 2021/03/06 13:10
I love how you can change the theme without paying money and you can even have your favorite image as your keyboard. GIFs are easy to access and the Google search button is quite genius. First, I have the keyboard theme as a very dark image. That comes with the problem of, when you use the Google search, the results come out too dark and I can hardly read them. There's no setting for this, and I'm disappointed because the Google search is a nice feature. Also, when you try to use the :-) feature, because of my dark theme, I can't see any of the buttons. I have my letter color as white but it still doesn't show up. Second, there's something uncomfortable about this keyboard. I think the main problem is that the auto correct doesn't move as smoothly as the iPhone keyboard. Overall this is a really good app.
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!
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.
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.
It has a flaw, but still amazing.
by 123 ro on 2020/12/07 23:59
♡︎ I actually really like the Google Keyboard. It's amazing, the only thing that I don't like at times is that, when I as accidentally typed a typo, the keyboard remembers that. For example: I typed "oo-" and now, whenever I type "oo" it autocorrects to "oo-" and it's so annoying! I didn't want it to autocorrect. So basically when I make a typo, it just remembers that typo and autocorrects the correct word to the typo. But I know that this feature is convenient when typing an ACTUAL TYPO it autocorrects :) Also, one this i like about this is that: you know how I typed "ACTUAL TYPO" a sentence before? Well, now it remembers it and when I type "ACTUAL", the word "TYPO" is in my suggestions! Pretty cool! Overall, this is a great keyboard, I use it every single time I type. I also love the fact that you can have different keyboard backgrounds, gifs, text faves abd more!! I love it thank you so mcuh google (and i used gboard to type this UwU) ♡︎
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!
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!! 😀
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.
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)
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.

Great keyboard, some bugs
by soupmatt4808 on 2021/04/30 17:46
Been using Gboard for years. Pros: it has a thinner line to show your finger path so it was more precise than Swiftkey (at least when I tried that years ago) or today's Apple keyboard (which has no line). I love the period and emoji buttons for quick access. Great work to the product and engineering team there. Cons: whenever I add an event in the iOS calendar app, typing on Gboard doesn't do anything at first - I have to cancel and retry and then it will work. Also when I tell Gboard to stop suggesting a word, it doesn't remember (e.g. it keeps trying to suggest BTW when I type btw even though I've told it not to). Minor inconveniences, would love to see them fixed but overall great keyboard.

Missing from Serbian AppStore
by DaliborSuh on 2021/04/29 07:22
This app is missing from Serbian iOS AppStore for more than a year since Serbian iOS AppStore has been enabled and all the developers have been informed in March 2020. All developers have enabled their apps but most of google apps are not available on Serbian iOS AppStore so we cannot download or update our apps or write feedback, except here, and only when we manually change our regions to us and lose all our paid subscriptions in order to be able to send feedback through the AppStore . So this is the only way we, Serbian users, can share our feedback. Official support does not want to help us and we pay for services we cannot use. So, please, inform your devs to enable this apps ob Serbian iOS AppStore ASAP. We will soon reach out to media to make wider attention to this issue and google discrimination of Serbian users if not fixed soon. Thanks.

gboard is in dire need of a emoji update. quite unfortunate how it hasn’t updated to reflect that and now with iOS 14.5 rolling out more new emojis, gboard needs to get it together and update accordingly.
Meh
by Yettavr6 on 2021/04/26 15:11
Had high hopes for this keyboard after having Android for years and absolutely hating iOS autocorrect and Siri dictation, but this keyboard is so frustrating to use. First, the dictation is basically usless because it stops listening if you pause for more than half a second. It also switches apps when you press the voice button for some reason. When you try to use dictation twice in a row (because it stopped listening) it gives a "something went wrong". Also, I hate how small the spacebar is because of the settings button. Let us turn the settings button off, we can change the settings in the Gboard app.

by swimrz on 2021/04/24 19:17
CAUTION: If you were a Gboard user on Android, you will be severely disappointed by the functionality of Gboard on the iPhone. It's an improvement over Apple's keyboard only in that SOME symbols may be accessed quickly and there are more options for GIFs. Long-press does not exist, case cannot be changed after a letter or word is typed without deleting and retyping. The list goes on. Give it a try, you've been warned.

Maybe the worst predictive software of all time. Keyboard keys are not sensitive enough so it constantly gets the wrong key for you. The only reason I have this is the Google button makes gifs really easy. Wish I could combine the G button with the apple keyboard.

I had challenges in using the Tamil keyboard. There doesn't seem to be options for composing composite alphabets. If there is, then it is not working. It makes it unusable.
Love it!!!

Almost 5 stars
by Qwerty1122334455667788899009 on 2021/04/16 22:20
I really love the way this keyboard works just more customization (for example: keyboard color) would make it a 5 star app

Usually very behind on emojis
by thebestfriday on 2021/04/14 17:27
I love many of the features but they are terrible at keeping up with Apple’s updated emojis. Seems like they are usually months behind adding them.

I love this app. It is totally free and totally coustom able. If you want a plan background color just zoom in on a photo. Then lower the brightest at the top. I just found it out. It makes everything so much more meat and organized. The is a G in the corner of the keyboard and there is a translate buton. It is so amazing!!!! Overall love the app. 🥰

Voice input now broken
by PDP_11 on 2021/04/11 15:03
I use GBoard as Apple's voice input in languages other than US English is terrible. Sadly, Google hasn't updated this is some time and now iOS 14.4.2 has completely broken voice input on GBoard regardless of language. Any voice input puts whatever app you're using into the background and opens the GBoard settings app. Then, that is put into the background and you get back to your original app. Sometimes you can now speak one voice input session (and only one) and sometimes you get "oops, something went wrong". Sadly for us users, we are made to suffer in the conflict between Apple and Google.

Scrolling change!
by SWF Mom on 2021/04/10 14:48
Please, please fix the curser scrolling issue. A while ago you could only move the curser when holding the space bar. Now it's anywhere on the key board and I HATE IT! Please change it back!

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!!!!
My Gboard is fun
by michcu on 2021/01/27 16:03
I love this keyboard and it functions so much better than the stock one in my iPhone. Since the new update it seems off. When I search emojis for example "star" not one emoji comes up. It's not suggesting then either 🤷🏼‍♀️ I think Every once in a while it glitches. I clear out the data and it's like new and precise. Only reason I gave 4 is because since this last ios update my keyboard keeps getting stuck on Español. Lol I'm bilingual but for the people who don't speak Español it's a problem. So it takes me twice as long to type in English because it keeps correcting my language to Española. It's given me some good laughs but my clients are not always as amused. Anyway, I have full faith it'll get fixed next update. I'm a Gboard user for life so I'm excited to see the next board. Let me just say with the two things I mentioned the Gboard is still so much more than any other board. It's able to read my movement more precisely, it's more convenient, types quick(other board now feel show), it's in time with current day demands for personal and business, and the gif searches are hilarious.
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.
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.
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!
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.
Suggestion Regarding a Useful User Setting
by markthereefshark on 2021/03/14 21:48
Hey Gboard Team! With regards to a design suggestion, I often find myself using the three word recommendations that dynamically appear as I type. I'm wondering if I can turn off the auto-spacing effect that inserts a space into the textfield after I select a recommended word. The reason I would like the ability to turn this setting off is because I find myself consistently modifying a recommended word to fit the correct part of speech (e.g. "correct" appears as a recommended word but I want to change it to read "correctly"), and I find that having to delete the auto-inserted space to reduce my overall typing speed. This isn't a hugeeeee issue, but I'm constantly wondering if I should just switch back to the default iOS keyboard ;) Sorry I didn't rate it a full 5 stars. Thought a lesser than perfect rating may have a higher chance at being reviewed by the team. I love the product though! Keep up the good work!
"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.
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!!!
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.
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!
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.
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.
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!
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
G board
by Nettajulle on 2021/02/22 20:55
❤️❤️❤️ love Gboard keyboard. It's my go -to keyboard. I have 14 different keyboards. I always find myself tapping the globe symbol and going back to Gboard! Developers should look towards more customizations to create your own keyboard. Most of the regular skins already in app are not really my style. I mostly create my own skins using cute photos or wallpapers. NEEDS: Fonts, more key colors , borders around keys are too transparent. Please add Special key effects. Totally worth it to download and use everyday! I absolutely love this keyboard app!!!! It's missing some things... Like long press on the second and third row keys should open the corresponding punctuation. I say this bcz in certain forms and sites the convenient period button disappears and you're left tapping back and forth between 123 and ABC. Wastes time and makes Swype typing awkward. Having said that this keyboard has the most accurate swipe type keyboard and predictive text suggestions!!!! Will rate 5 stars when some features suggested or others are added to this app. It's been more than six months from my last review. All perfect since the last update. The only thing I would like to see is the ability to customize our keyboards better. I love all my keyboard skins but I would love a way to.... add more personalization. Google is free AND awesome. Thank you to the developers who keep bringing the magic to third party keyboards in iOS 14.4!!!
Great utilitie, just a few problems
by watermelon_guy on 2021/03/06 13:10
I love how you can change the theme without paying money and you can even have your favorite image as your keyboard. GIFs are easy to access and the Google search button is quite genius. First, I have the keyboard theme as a very dark image. That comes with the problem of, when you use the Google search, the results come out too dark and I can hardly read them. There's no setting for this, and I'm disappointed because the Google search is a nice feature. Also, when you try to use the :-) feature, because of my dark theme, I can't see any of the buttons. I have my letter color as white but it still doesn't show up. Second, there's something uncomfortable about this keyboard. I think the main problem is that the auto correct doesn't move as smoothly as the iPhone keyboard. Overall this is a really good app.
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!
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.
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.
It has a flaw, but still amazing.
by 123 ro on 2020/12/07 23:59
♡︎ I actually really like the Google Keyboard. It's amazing, the only thing that I don't like at times is that, when I as accidentally typed a typo, the keyboard remembers that. For example: I typed "oo-" and now, whenever I type "oo" it autocorrects to "oo-" and it's so annoying! I didn't want it to autocorrect. So basically when I make a typo, it just remembers that typo and autocorrects the correct word to the typo. But I know that this feature is convenient when typing an ACTUAL TYPO it autocorrects :) Also, one this i like about this is that: you know how I typed "ACTUAL TYPO" a sentence before? Well, now it remembers it and when I type "ACTUAL", the word "TYPO" is in my suggestions! Pretty cool! Overall, this is a great keyboard, I use it every single time I type. I also love the fact that you can have different keyboard backgrounds, gifs, text faves abd more!! I love it thank you so mcuh google (and i used gboard to type this UwU) ♡︎
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!
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!! 😀
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.
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)
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
