Nice features but 3/5
The keys are too small compared to apple keyboard. Good for usages like finding gifs n links. Bad for everyday texting
Made my iphone very slow 2/5
I used this for over a year but since last months I have been experiencing lot of lag. All phone animations started lagging when opening the keyboard. I removed this keyboard last week and my phone is very smooth since then.
Coming from Android, this keyboard is dissapointing 3/5
By iPhone Steve
I have had GBoard on every single phone for the last 3 years but this iPhone I got has soured the experience slightly.
In the Android app you could change colors, you could add a number bar above the letters, you could sync your dictionary with your Google account.
What you get on iPhone is a demo of the real GBoard. Not sure if it's Apple's doing or if Google is just making it "more like the iPhone keyboard" to keep the sheeple happy. Either way. It's trash.
Feature request. 3/5
OMG yes I would love the ability to delete specific words from library with a hard press "3d press" for one example there's this Thai place that I order from, so I do type Thai into Google to grab their number from time to time. But the problem is that when I type "that" even if I go no further from a than r or f just barely touching the t.. it still replace that what Thai... I have to manually type that, which I easily use 1000x more than the word Thai..
About the 9-key and qwerty keyboard switch 3/5
One language only support one type of keyboard, it's really not reasonable.
If you use Chinese keyboard, the symbols are not adequate under the qwerty mode but sufficient under 9-key mode. But it's more effective to input characters in qwerty mode.
So please support switch between different keyboard mode under the same language, or make the symbol system more sufficient in both modes.
PERFECT KEYBOARD IN MY ANDROID AND iOS
I wish it had the ability to text in English and Spanish without to switch keyboards, like SwiftKey does.
Improve cangjie Experience 3/5
By Kit Tsui
I'm Chinese user. About cangjie I hope you can improve it
NOT THERE YET BY A LONG STRETCH.. 3/5
Now one will ever read this, but here goes:
Instead of adding more and more useless features (like the GIF making stuff that other apps can do faster and better), what’s REALLY NEEDED IS STUFF LIKE:
- Option to make the keyboard bigger.. is still too small for my hands on an iPhone 8 Plus and no way to resize it to larger size and use more available screen real estate space.
- Text prediction fonts are way too small and the keyboard itself would benefit from larger and bolder fonts on the keys to see them better.
- A much needed sticky "period" and "comma" directly on the main keyboard's layout!
I have many other suggestions but I’ll stop here because I am wasting my time e with wishlists that no one will ever read.
I love this app for iOS 5/5
Such a great alternative to the tired and dusty iOS keyboard which is horrible.
Low accuracy 2/5
I appreciate the efficiency of Gboard but the prediction accuracy is incorrect about 50% of the time.
Much nicer on the X after recent update! 3/5
Please make the black theme true black, ends up looking gray and doesn't have the transparency of the stock keyboard.
Other than that, please allow the user to select whether or not you want the Emoji key or the settings key displayed on the keyboard, also what about allowing a customizable swipe color? And true haptic feedback for every key press
The best could be better 4/5
Is the best alternative keyboard I could find, but there are still a couple things that could be improved. I'd like to see better emoji integration while writing. The native keyboard is better at suggesting emojis from words written. Also, the talk to text function is a little clunky and could be more seamless and integrated.
😎 but one issue. 4/5
By Brother Siddiq
sometimes the keyboard hides the text. I hate that but other than that it's an awesome piece of work.
Don’t download unless you hate your iPhone 1/5
Stupid app made my phone go apes&$t. Some kind of virus idk. I’m surprised since it’s from google. Screw this app
Number pad👎 4/5
By C. Morrell
Gboard's number pad messes up some third-party apps. I just wish there was a way to turn off the Gboard's number pad.
Pleased add language soon 5/5
Please add Bangla language soon. Its a great keyboard app for iPhone but we can write in our native language with Gboard. It’s not fear Google.
Need to turn off auto word suggestion 3/5
Auto suggestion on top of keyboard cannot be turned off? This is annoying. Please update so users can turn this off.
Like this more than built in keyboard 5/5
No problems with this keyboard! Not too glitchy with me at all. Using it on iPhone SE. Has more features than the built in keyboard that's why I love it!
I don't care what other users say G board is amazing and I love it is so smooth

Waiting Ukrainian language 5/5
This is the best way to enter text! Please add the Ukrainian language, I am very excited...
Not stable at all 1/5
By Randy Juel
Lots of glitches, working slow
Not very good 3/5
By An Apple User 637363733
Make auto correct have different levels of correction. Right now i feel like its too lose, but some people might prefer this. Also make a better gesture for one handed typing.
Love it. 5/5
It's a interesting key board setting love it.
No fifth row of numbers 1/5
There is no way to add a fifth row of numbers. Also split kebord dosent work. All it does is float half way up the screen, thats great but can't see what is being type when passwords or ids are required.
This is the less loved stepchild of the Android version 1/5
This app is terrible at learning from the things I type. The Android version quickly picked up the n-grams I frequently use. If I wanted to sound like every other pathetic factory-cloned person who uses an iPhone then I wouldn't have installed this app, would I? Please pay your machine learning engineers more money. PM, if you're reading this, get a new job. Or go back to consulting or finance or whatever unfulfilling career you had before you joined Google. Every time this sad excuse for an app suggests a word someone didn't intend, a puppy dies.
No urdu? 1/5
Why is there no urdu?
It is available on android ones then why not on ios? need Urdu language
Me gusta este teclado, es el mejor
fantastic but 4/5
I'm allowed to turn off auto cap but please let me use the swipe keyboard ability without capitalizing my acronyms
i.e. ETA I would like eta
This is so smooth 4/5
By Yo mom 55
The only reason that this is a five star app is because it does not automatically add spaces in-between words.( I am using it now)
room for improvement 3/5
I keep pressing the space bar when I try to his the emoji button.
there should be an option to remove predictive words above the keyboard.
Best iOS glide typing 5/5
By Damon Allison
Gboard is so much more efficient than the iOS default keyword. The autocorrect is terrific and the type inference is amazing.
Apple should introduce a first party keyboard to compete with Gboard.
Highly inaccurate 1/5
This keyboard never swipes what I want it too. The swipe predictions are what ruin it. Don't try to predict my next word. Just interpret my swipes instead.
By Mehdi Nataj
Prefect keyboard and smart
Nice keyboard ever 5/5
Please support Myanmar Language 😃😃
Crashes + Sluggish absolutely all the time 2/5
I love the keyboard, and have been using it despite the constant crashing and slowness (I'm talking EVERY time I try to use it). The gif and Google search functions are oddly very incomplete, but the rest of the features are great.
Unfortunately, as my iPhone 6 continues to age and slow down, this keyboard is just getting more and more infuriating to try and use. This review will be the last thing I type with it.
Way too much extra junk 2/5
I have an iPhone 6. Typing and auto predict are great. But it just too bogged down with a lot of extras that i have to wait about 10 seconds just type something. A lot of unnecessary junk. I I don't need to see the doodle of the day, I just want to type! there needs to be a toggle to just shut off gifs or search or sketch or doodle of the day. 4 extra things that I don't even use!! Come on...
Weird bugs to work out 2/5
I needed something other than SwiftKey because of consistent repeated problems with SwiftKey. I figured Google would have their act together. Surprised that they don't.
In general this keyboard works well enough for autocorrect and predictions, but that's about it. It has a major bug that bites me nearly every time I'm writing up sentences. It loses track of the text in the sentence and starts clobbering what you wrote. It doesn't seem to handle backspace well at all. If you start typing and then delete a few letters, it will often start autocorrect info and replace partial words or delete entire chunks from sentences you wrote earlier. It's truly bizarre and surprising from Google.
Also, the UI isn't implemented properly. It hovers over the content instead of forcing the content up. Right now I can't see what I'm typing because my cursor has gone below the keyboard, and the text hasn't started scrolling to be visible. SwiftKey does that no problem.
Overall very annoying to use. Hoping they improve in the future.
Dedicated voice typing button 1/5
It should be on the keyboard layout at all times like Android and iOS keyboards. The long press on the space bar is not convenient or intuitive.
It was a five star app😢 2/5
I use to give this app 5 stars but it has been so buggy since a few updates ago. I now have it crash constantly.
Edit: newest update crashes even more on my iPhone 6....
Edit 2: I now have to restart my phone every so often otherwise the swipe feature gets the words wrong. Also when deleting words it will sometimes mess up words I wrote before the one I deleted. So the word I wanted to keep has to be fixed too. I also have it randomly type a single q when it feels frozen for a bit. What happened with iOS 11 and this app?
Predictive text makes me roll my eyes so hard 1/5
Honestly the predictive text/autocorrect is infuriating. I find myself fixing every sentence because google thinks it knows English better than I do. If I do not proof read text before sending, it can really make you look like an idiot. The fact that it will change a word a few words behind based on what I am typing is insane and ruins so many sentences. I don't know. This board drives me crazy. Also the voice to text is annoying because it never listens long enough.
Quit working with update 1/5
By Joe from georgetown
Was a great app but quit working with my February 15 th update. Hard to have to type again
Would love it if it would fit the whole "keyboard" screen, the little gray space at the bottom bothers me a lot.
Used to be good 2/5
This app used to be so good but lately it's just gotten so much worse and now on YouTube, it's all glitchy and messes up...sometimes it doesn't even open oritopensand closes rapidly over and over on iPad
Loving Gboard 5/5
some issues 3/5
the little Google button is covering the first suggested text as if it were clicked
Baubillious 😂😭 great awesome splendid fabulous 5/5
Great app I recommend it it's really cool TBH
Gifs are small 4/5
I've noticed that people who are using apples keyboard with gifs are much larger. From Gboard they look tiny.
I can see my text replacement 1/5
Get the G search bubble out of the text suggestions area, it blocks my text replacements.
