Editors’ Notes

A world of GIFs at your fingertips.


Don’t like the update

I don’t ever write reviews unless it’s to this point. I LOVED this app and put many people into it......BUT this update with the iOS 11 is TRASH!!! The app still does what it needs to do but crashes a lot more on me now BUT that’s not really my complaint because I’m sure that can be fixed. I HATE THE WAY IT LOOKS NOW! The white background doesn’t make me feel special by using THIS keyboard vs what apple offers. I don’t see the option for the font change anymore. The GIF doesn’t just go away after you select it and paste it so it’s annoying to have to hit the X button to back out. Again it crashes after I hit that X button so I have to find what next GIF I had my mind set on. Overall I hope that the developers do take time to read this feedback and care enough that little ol me wants to see a change. I’m asking for a option to set the background back to black and for my GIF to just go away again after I copy and paste it so I can seamlessly use multiple GIFs. GIFs are all I like to use and I’d love to give this app the love that it deserves but PLEASE make changes. Also the record feature is pretty nice! I’m only giving one star in hopes of getting someone’s attention. ☹️


So much fun!

This is an awesome GIF keyboard. It was recommended by a friend to our BJJ team group chat - and I now use it regularly. The search works great - and I love that it doesn’t just give results for your specific search phrase, but also includes several other possible phrases that may be better suited for what you want (but just didn’t think of it!). There’s always dozens of GIFs to choose from thanks to the vast library, including some pretty obscure searches I’ve done (I mean, when texting a group of Jiu Jitsu competitors there’s just topics that don’t come up in regular, “day-to-day” conversations/interactions!).

I hope they continue to add content to keep my responses fresh and hilarious (or as smart@$$ as I want to be). Unless something were to go drastically wrong with the app, they’ve got a lifetime customer AND “word-of-mouth marketer”/recommender!! Keep up the terrific work!
