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. ☹️

It’s great !


If you are looking for something to say in GIG it’s pretty much there! I do alternate betweeen it and my regular keyboard perhaps because I am used to my regular keyboard or perhaps I feel the old one is faster ? Is that bc I’m used to it I don’t know possibly I just started using this so it will take some getting used to but I do love it because like I say any GIF I’ve looked for so far is there!! And really you do alternating between your regular keyboard and the GIF because you have to patch the world to get the other one so there is that I’m being silly ha ha if you think you’re going in between them is sort of are !! LOL!! Just get used to it 😂 smiley is even there! Just close the tenor!
