Description

Gboard is a new keyboard from Google for your iPhone. It has all the things you would expect from a great keyboard — GIFs, emojis, and Glide Typing — plus Google Search built in. No more app switching; just search and send, right from your keyboard. Search and send anything from Google: • Nearby stores and restaurants • Videos and images • Weather forecasts • News and articles • Sports scores • And anything else you’d search on Google GIFs — Search GIFs for the best reaction Emoji Search — Find the perfect emoji, faster Glide Typing — Type faster by sliding your finger from letter to letter Privacy We know the things you type on your phone are personal, so we’ve designed Gboard to keep your private information private. What Gboard sends to Google: • Gboard sends your searches to Google’s web servers to give you search results. • Gboard also sends usage statistics to Google to let us know which features are used most often and to help us understand problems if the app crashes. • If you use Gboard’s microphone, voice input will be sent to Google for transcription. What Gboard doesn’t send to Google: • Other than your searches and voice inputs, Gboard doesn't send anything you type to Google, whether it’s a password or chat with a friend. • To help you with spelling and to predict searches you might be interested in, Gboard will store the words you type on your device. This data is not accessible by Google or by any apps, and can be cleared at any time. • If you’ve turned on contacts search in Gboard search settings, this allows Gboard to search the contacts on your device so you can easily share. None of these queries are sent to Google.

    The typing is better, the word prediction is better and the swipe to type is WAY more accurate.
  • Was great, can’t use it.

    I really liked this because it made typing easier. It alone made it much more simple to use emojis and such. I’m under the age of 17 and have restrictions for apps. Ever since I updated it, it’s been 17+. Now I can’t use it. Seems odd for a keyboard.
  • Nice but irritating

    You constantly suggest wrong words. Your constantly change common words like you to your when my finger hasn't even did across three "r" key. Or changing in to on You miss out on totally everyday words. Ridiculous and irritating. And your stupid "in-keyboard" microphone option in the new keyboard constantly messes up my Bluetooth
  • Predictive Text

    This keyboard is awful. I had to quit using Swype because predictive text doesn't work. Okay it works but you'll should like an outdoor. *Sound *idiot. And the M key causes backspace.
  • Doesn't work on Safari and Mail in the latest version of iOS

    Doesn't work on Safari and Mail in the latest version of iOS making the app pretty unusable and annoyingly inconsistent.
  • Decent

    This keyboard is indispensable. Gives weird prediction sometimes or is slightly glitchy. Mostly good.
  • Missing taps. Broken for months and waiting for a good update

    Gboard used to be my favorite app. Now, I can’t even type on it. Swiping is great when it works, and it was my number one reason for switching from the Apple stock keyboard. No matter how I tap, type, swipe, it only registers about 1 in 5 taps. I can’t write the simplest of words. I’ve tried redownloading, erasing dictionary, turning settings on and off and nothing will fix it. It’s been like this since one of the updates in late 2017. Is there any way around this?
  • Freezes my iPhone

    I like it. Specially because of the GiF. Buuuut it freezes my phone. I’m using it on iPhone 7 plus. As soon as I switch back to Apple’s everything works fine. What a shame.
  • Emoji Key

    Come on Google I'm not a preteen girl I don't need or want an emoji key most would rather have more keyboard space. Please give an option to disable this useless button.
  • Decent until recent update

    worked pretty well until a recent update a few weeks ago or something, now it acts stupid like I don't know sometimes it sits there and pauses and I have to say something random and then it will write everything and mess it up it's dumb
