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 shops and restaurants
• Videos and images
• Weather forecasts
• News and articles
• Sports scores
• And anything else which you’d search for 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
Gboard for iPhone and iPad supports the following languages:
• Portuguese (Brazil)
• Portuguese ( Portugal)
• Simplified Chinese
• Traditional Chinese (Taiwan)
• Traditional Chinese (Hong Kong)
We know the things that 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 that you can easily share. None of these queries is sent to Google.
In this version we have:
• Language support for Thai and Khmer
• GIF support for Japanese keyboard.
In case you missed some of our recent features, here's what Gboard has added in the last few updates:
• Your minis: Stickers based on you. Create and customise minis inspired by your photos, and share them in any app.
• You can now type in multiple languages without having to change the language. Just add the languages that you want via the Gboard app, then start typing or swiping!
*Not all languages are supported.
• Improved voice typing experience.
• Added new fun camera effects for MAKE A GIF!
• Dvorak and Colemak layouts for the English keyboard.
• Morse keyboard.
Ratings and Reviews
This made texting soo fast and easy. Great app overall, thanks google!
Couple important improvements needed:
- it takes a very very long time to activate the keyboard mic.
-Autocorrect needs major improvements
-Amharic keyboard missing
-Provide more emoji suggestions when typing.
Let's wait and see how quickly Google addresses these issues I have not been disappointed in the past when it comes to fixing issues
Excellent app, but needs one change to be perfect
Pressing on the Google colored button on the bottom should stop the listening input. Sometimes if music is playing in the background then it will continue to listen for voices, even though I stopped giving the voice input 20 seconds earlier. This is a really annoying future, and there needs to be a way to stop the listening input in case music is playing in the background or something.
Glitches fixed by deleting and reinstalling
Gboard was flashing all the time and glitching out since updating to iOS 11. Deleting the app and reinstalling fixed the issue.
I think I may have lost my custom words list though.
Seriously good keyboard though, one of the best 3rd-party apps for iOS.
