Sometimes emojis just don’t cut it. Share your true feelings with GIFs.

- Tell your crush that cuddling should be in your future.

WHY FULL ACCESS? "Full Access" means that the GIF Keyboard has full access to the internet, which is how we know what you're looking for and how we're able to deliver the latest and the greatest GIFs and short videos to you. We do not log keystrokes or send them to our servers other than to search by key terms for the perfect GIF. We also do not see anything you type and send in any other keyboard, unless you switch to the GIF Keyboard before you send a message you typed in another keyboard. Nevertheless, we recommend you use the Apple keyboard whenever entering credit card numbers, passwords or other sensitive information. If you have any other questions about full access please email us at


* Always send the perfect GIF and video responses straight from your keyboard! And it plays inline on iMessage.

* Browse through categories like reactions, music, trending and more.

* Search millions of GIFs and videos for the perfect moment. You can also tap the emoji icon in the menu to search by your favorite emoji!

* See a GIF you like while browsing on your phone? Save it from Safari with one tap. That means no saving to your camera roll and it’s instantly available from your keyboard.

* Customize your keyboard with the GIFs you love! Just double tap to favorite it.

* Create Collections of your favorite GIFs

* Works with your favorite messengers and social networks including iMessage, Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, Twitter, Facebook and Email. Just long-press on a GIF to pull up options to share the GIF, Video, link, or save to camera roll

IMPORTANT NOTE: Some iOS8 users lose “Full Access” Keyboard Settings after a few days. If you lose “Full Access” just go to your settings, and tap the “Full Access” toggle to enable your Riffsy GIF Keyboard again! This temporary issue affects all third-party keyboards for now.

Deleted as disruptive banner was annoying

Didn’t really get a chance to explore this App as I deleted it within 2 days or so of downloading.

I did not want to give the App full access to my keyboard for privacy reasons. As such, the App ALWAYS had a banner sitting above my keyboard (no matter what App I was in) prompting me to give full access. I could not remove this banner, and it was very disruptive, so I deleted the App.

I am giving this feedback here as a review as I could not find a contact or feedback button inside the App prior to deleting.

Love this app! Honestly I just love gifs all together because they can express your feelings through a short clip. Only suggestion I have is to make it easier to paste the gif. Maybe make it do it automatically. Also I found that I couldn’t post a gif in a comment on my Facebook news feed. I had to open the post to post a gif in the comments.

Great but needs Smart Keyboard support

Great app, love how you can also annotate on the gif! Though, with the Apple Smart Keyboard, it doesn’t work which is frustrating... so if I want to use this Tenor keyboard, I have to detact my Smart Keyboard.
Makes it kind of unsable because of this but that’s just my use case as I use the Smart Keyboard all the time.

I hope this is a fix that can happen and it’s not something that’s restricted by Apple.
