Great, but confusing name!


Thanks for fixing it! It’s great! Please pick either Tenor or GIF Keyboard. GIF Keyboard is the name of the app on the App Store, but Tenor is actually what installs on your computer. So if you want the program to open upon starting your computer, you need to search for Tenor. This isn’t clear at all, so developers - please pick just one name and standardize.

Also, it’s broken for High Sierra, but I’m sure the devs are aware of this.

Convenient, free, works


It’s not made with love, but it works. I have gotten in a habit using GIFs in iMessage and email on my iPhone, so it’s nice being able to do this conveniently on my Mac. It’s a huge icon for the menu bar, though. I’d like to see the icon reduced. And the installed app name is “Tenor” rather than the more helpful “GIF Keyboard” I always forget the name when I want to launch with Spotlight — I just renamed it manually. And there’s no visible scroll bar in the GIF results.

they fixed the app!

Tiger Bro

This update seems to have fixed a lot of the issues.

The app used to only show me a couple of GIFs and I couldn’t scroll.

Looks like that’s fixed. I can send GIFs again 🔥👊🏾👏🏾
