Too inaccurate and time-consuming. 2/5
There are a lot of great features with this keyboard. Unfortunately, it’s far less accurate than the standard iPhone keyboard, even when predicting. I’ve had to edit at least 60% of my texts, with single sentences taking close to over a minute to send. Great effort, but ultimately useless and frustrating.
Always messing up
Urdu language 5/5
By Aziz Afzal
Need to add urdu Language soon. Because we use regularly.
Ruined by AUTOCORRECT 2/5
This keyboard started out great, but autocorrect becomes worse and worse with each version. Autocorrect is constantly trying to put words together that make absolutely no sense. On to of this it now goes and changed words two words back, so you have to constantly check if it's destroying your sentences. Sad that this is what's making this, otherwise awesome keyboard, almost completely unusable.
Please please please make more themes and customizable.
❤️ it. 5/5
I absolutely love this keyboard. It makes my iPhone somewhat tolerable.
Voice typing and so much more 5/5
I am so happy with my Google keyboard because I can actually speak into the microphone and Google understands when I'm saying if I was if using my Apple keyboard Siri would not have understood what I was saying and put something random also they have meme on here that you can search and that's really cool because I like to put memes in my messages also you could search what type of emoji you want use if you not sure what the actual emoji is... By the way I did all of this on voice typing. Also they have swipe which I easy to use but I don't use it often cause I'm so used to just typing it out. They also have Google search on the word bar which is really helpful.
'abs' vs 'and' autocorrect fail 2/5
It still consistently mistypes 'abs' instead of 'and'. Everyone must think I'm commenting on their abs. Really awful prediction and autocorrect algorithm. Intolerable UI too.
Was good but lately has been really really buggy 2/5
Six months ago i would have given this a 4.5 star rating. The last few updates though are really sub-par. The target for the backspace seems to have gotten larger and is often hit while swiping the letter m, erasing what I've entered. Also text suggestions are really really inaccurate and often doesn't recognize common words
Causes major lag 1/5
By Pita X
Good but major lag when using iPhone 6. There's a delay when opening anything that requires a keyboard. Will be deleting soon
Every single time JUDY instead of JUST 4/5
How do you fix it?
Might considering 5 stars, if and only if... 4/5
By Pocket Frequent User
Devs could implement Google Translate like the Android Counterpart
Wher is the Serbian language?
Solid idea, please improve autocorrect. 2/5
The only reason I don’t use this more often is because of how inaccurate the autocorrect is... what’s the hold up? Be upfront about it and how you aim to fix it please.
Love it for gifs search. Bigger than Apple's but now my Gifs are now small. Please fix!
This version is very laggy, even talk to text takes forever to start and misses words
Iphone X !!!! 5/5
Works really good on the Iphone X way easier to Text with one hand
Voice dictation needs a lot of work 1/5
1. I'm using voice dictation to type this but I have to keep activating it every couple of seconds because the time out is terribly short. If you pause for even half a second between words or sentences it times out and you have to press it again. It works even worse in Google's own apps because it won't put the speech to text into the field you're trying to dictate into.
2. Then there is the strange fact that it randomly capitalizes words, but will not capitalize the beginning of sentences. It also randomly starts autocorrecting with meaningless words or acronyms and spaces. And why does it insist on RE capitalizing words I have intentionally decapitalized, like emails.
3. Speaking of emails, why doesn't it autocomplete my email consistently??? It is obnoxious that no one has provided a keyboard that does this.
3D touch to highlight? 1/5
How could you possibly miss the 3D touch to highlight words that comes default on the iOS keyboard? Literally the best feature of 3D touch and you completely failed to implement it, rendering this keyboard useless.
PS would've given 5 starts if it weren't for this
NEEDS UPDATE 1/5
The keyboard is ok. However you need to update it to support the iPhone X
Getting worse 3/5
Used to be my favorite, but it's been utter garbage the past several days. Going to try to switch back to Swiftkey for a while. I'm correcting more words than I'm not, and much more than I used to even weeks ago.
Missing one thing. 3/5
The only complaint I have is that I hate that I have a globe button and an emoji button. I wish there was a way to get rid of one or the other since they both have emojis. Or else I would give it a total 5 star!!
Update: Since upgrading to iPhone X the keyboard is hideous. It looked way better on the 7+ as it was more of a white than the cream color it is now. Ick.
Still better than Apple keyboard 4/5
But, when I updated it seemed to have forgotten even it had learned with respect to predictive text based on what I write. Also, there are some emojis that are all of a sudden missing, like woman with arms crossed. Weird!
Really bad 2/5
I have deleted Swiftkey to try this which I was very excited about Google! It’s pretty bad though- don’t recommend this. Hopefully you will become better than Swiftkey because the inbuilt Google is a great option.
Really frustrating to use 2/5
While I love the idea of this board and it's many functions like being able to google emojis. I really don't like how it changes a whole sentence while I am typing. And if you try to delete a word or extra letter it ends up putting together all the words so rather than reading " I'm so happy to hear that Mary" it read imsohappytohearthatmark" yes because it will also change the letter you just tried to delete to a different letter all together.
The amount of beyond confusing texts or emails I've had to edit because of this keyboard is insane . It saves more time to just flippen search for emojis rather than have to re type everything out 3 times.
Great, but lacking 4/5
Some of the best predictions and features of any keyboard including swyping which is usually really inaccurate but google does it great.
But it is seriously lacking in settings. There are no screen-space-saving, or size-reducing settings at all, there are no settings to remove unused buttons or turn off features being added all the time, there are no dictionary editing options, you can’t even edit themes after you make them.
Just as smooth as native keyboard but more useful 5/5
Everything works prefectly. Swipe works very well. Missing one key feature though: Shift-Delete to delete an entire word. Also, force-touch text cursor on native keyboard is better.
Everything is BETTER on an Android! 4/5
Haven't had an iPhone in 3 years. I got the iPhone X because it was sexy. However I am not sold. I'm just goning to use the new experience for a few. When the next hot Android comes out I will snag it and ditch Apple for good.
So glitchy 2/5
By Frustrated Fading Chiver
This keyboard is so awesome when it works but it's really glitchy. Seems like the predictive text capabilities have gotten worse too.
Love the customization options 5/5
By I lost my TI-84
I just can't believe these are gboard's early days! I actually prefer this over Swiftkey because I can google search without leaving what I'm writing. I just recently discovered that I could change themes as well and it works really nicely.
It’s ok 3/5
Keys ‘edges’ are too narrow. LOTS of mistakes when typing. Autocorrect is terrible. Awesome gif selection though. Locks up and makes it hard to access text inputs (Instagram and Tumblr for example) forcing you to post and then go back to edit in order to add text. Too complicated to access emoji keyboard (have to cycle through all three keyboards to get to it then back). Needs improvement.
Could be better on iPhone X 3/5
Although the latest update does help color match Gboard to look more natural on the iPhone X, it is still noticable, especially in dark apps. It would be nice if Gboard adopted iOS style translucency.
Please bring same level language support as in Android 4/5
I don't see many languages and handwriting input as in the Android app in iPhone version. Please bring Malayalam language support.
Needs artifical intelligence predictions 3/5
One of the reasons I love using swiftkey is because of their artifical intelligence prediction system
What the hell happened to it having translate like it used to? Are you serious?
I would like it if Google keyboard had colors like my Android
kurdish keyboard 5/5
Kurdish keyboard is Exist in gboard on android. why it’s not exist here on IOS. thank you
Has gotten slower 3/5
Ever since 1.16, it's been extremely slow for me. I loved it before that and would have rated it 5 stars until now, but there's a huge lag that often results in typos and opening apps I didn't mean to open, etc.
What happened? 3/5
Both my wife and I started noticing the keyboard getting less and less accurate the last while. Had to delete and use another keyboard.
Some features are missing 5/5
Thanks very much guys for this amazing application!
We wish to see:
- Number row option
- Emoji prediction
- Auto inserting shortcuts when auto correction is disabled
You are the best Google ❤️
3D Touch 3/5
By Treva "F" Baby
On the original iPhone keyboard you can use 3D Touch to move your cursor Up Down Left or Right but on googles you can only go Left or Right :( please fix this
Me encanta 5/5
Adoro el hecho de poder tener un buscador en mi teclado, es muy útil a la hora de resolver el hilo de una conversación
Felicitaciones y se los recomiendo !!
What happen ? 3/5
By Dah doob
What happen? Did you guys update it and make it buggy? It was perfect two months ago now I keeps missing auto corrects. Fix my Gboard 😭😭
Please don’t ever remove this 5/5
Gboard is beyond phenomenal. I love everything about this keyboard and I refuse to use anything else. Please for the love of God never remove this keyboard haha. It seriously saves lives.
One of the best all around keyboards 4/5
Just gonna list what needs improving.
Predictive Text: I typed many of the same phrases, names, over and over again. Gboard still can't pick up those phrases and names correctly. Predictive text is hit or miss. Mostly missing right now but overall the keyboard is great.
Best keyboard for iPhone X! 5/5
At first I was upset because the standard gray theme didn't match the bottom space below the keyboard on my iPhone X. But now it does! I've used every major keyboard and this is the best!
YOUR SEARCHES ARE SCREENED AND MONITORED 1/5
You can't search for anything that you want because it apparently does not fall within someone else's Viewpoint of what is acceptable to be displayed on the keyboard. You cannot turn any of the safe search features off so if you have a grown-up sense of humor you won't be able to find the grown up types of things you might want to send a friend. But it will gladly give you all the fake news that you want. Keyboard has a good idea and better feel than the iPhone keyboard but I'm not going to use something that restricts what I am allowed to see in the searches.
AMAZING WHY ARE PEOPLE COMPLAINING?!?! 5/5
I never write reviews but This app is amazing I just hate haters this is an amazing app and the only little thing I want is talk to text tho...
Near perfect. Just add haptic feedback to the key presses. 5/5
This keyboard is near perfect. But the only thing i wish would be added is the ability to use the haptic engine to give a little vibration on each keypress. That wpuld be a game changer.
I can't live without it! 5/5
The best swipe-type keyboard out there, and I've tried them all.
