KEYBOARD CRASHES AND SLOWS DOWN 1/5
Let me start this by saying that I absolutely love the google keyboard; however, as of late it has been crashing and freezing...... A LOT. I do not want to use the keyboard Apple supplies, but these issues are forcing me to have to. PLEASE HELP
Doesn't work with Google apps (Chrome, Gmail....????) 1/5
Something happened either with the latest update of Gboard or the latest iOS update, but now suddenly I cannot use Gboard with any app made by Google. iMessages? Facebook? This app to write a review? GBoard works fine. Chrome? Gmail? Google Maps? GBoard doesn't even show up as a keyboard option anymore.
Please save me from the non-emoji searching no giphy bad predictive text that is default iOS keyboard.
The very best keyboard to use. So intuitive.

Awesome app google
Slow, laggy, crashy 2/5
This keyboard has been slow, laggy, and crashing since iOS 13. The keyboard doesn't switch to dark mode consistently when iOS dark mode is enabled
What’s the deal with the keyboard freezing up so often? It’s getting annoying and making me want to delete
It was great still trying to use it but 1/5
The main issue I’m having is that when I type or swipe to type the cursor then a to glitch and just start moving all the way to the beginning of the text and I have to switch out of gboard keyboard to another to reset it

Real funny and effective
Good but has problems 4/5
I've used this keyboard on my iPhone for a long time not and never had a problem until recently. Every once in a while the keyboard crashes and some of the letters in the word I'm typing will stay selected and freeze, making it impossible to continue swiping. I've tried reinstalling the app as well at the phone but the problem doesn't go away. I'd love to keep using it but it's becoming Veri annoying.
Works like absolute garbage on iPhone Xr 1/5
By better app coder than this guy
Just upgraded from iPhone 6. Worked great on there. Horrible functionality on new phone. Slow, lags, voice doesn't work, swipe doesn't work. Garbage
After using it for a year 2/5
After using this keyboard for a year I've come to notice a couple of things that I really don't like.
1. Sometimes the keyboard tries to match dark or light theme of the current view(fails miserabley at it Most of the time)
2. Even if a word that I spelled is grammatically correct the keyboard still replaces it with another word and it's so frustrating.
3.keyboard crashes alot.
4. Alot of the time, while I'm typing the keyboard becomes super slow and eventually it just crashes and because I have a stupid iPhone I can't go and restart the app because it's not an Android.
All this stuff combined really makes me hate this keyboard. But it's better than the default keyboard so I'm stuck with it.
Best keyboard 5/5
By Roxas X3
This is by far the best keyboard on IOS
Keeps typing numbers 2/5
I “was” a heavy android user recently switching to iPhone. This is not the same keyboard as on the Google pixel. Predictive text is bad. The other issue I’m having, when typing fast, letters along the top that have a number on it, keeps putting that number in the place of the letter. Then the prediction is so bad that it won’t fix it. Example: when typimg "shock" it types sh9ck and isn't smart enough to change to shock. I love the layout......and on a pixel, this keyboard is way better than apples stock. Hashtag is easier to get to, prediction amazing. Make it better on iPhone.
Regressing updates 3/5
I've used Gboard for a long time, and I like the swipe keyboard function. I would abandon it now for the regular iPhone keyboard that allows for swiping, but that punctuation key and it's Google search and emojis keep me from doing that. On my old phone, Gboard was the only keyboard I had, but since I got a new phone, the Chinese keyboard I used is gone. Seriously. You have Hong Kong Chinese, traditional/Taiwanese, but not Mandarin simplified? There are many more people who need that keyboard. And then since the Chinese keyboard is the default for notifications and passwords, I have to use the regular Apple keyboard too. The voice typing is also annoying because it switches to the Gboard app and takes ten seconds to do it, so I never use it. This could be a limitation brought by Apple, but it's annoying.
Gboard is nice because it has a lot of functions, but it lacks some very important ones and I still have to use the provided Apple keyboards.
Awesome app 5/5
Recommend this app if any of you want to costomize your keyboard of apple or on android
Can't use speech to text anymore? 3/5
Apple changed the way 3rd party keyboards access iOS so now the Gboard voice component is basically useless..... Find a fix!!
Never writes what I want to say using voice to text, 1/5
I use I phone 8 phone while trying to use the feature talk to text with the latest updates . Which only happens when I use Google app . I am very unsatisfied cause I have invested a lot of money in this technology
There are emojis missing when you look at the emojis from the Gboard and the regular emoji button. The one I noticed is "💏💑" it somehow is now gone from emoji section. When I go to look at my emoji from my regular Apple keyboard they're there. I also notice when I'm trying every now and then the keyboard will freeze up and not type out the word I'm actually wanting to type. I used to love this app because it was the only keyboard I could really swipe text but now for some reason the keyboard seems to be really glitching up.
Problematic corrections 2/5
I used to like this keyboard much more than I do now. Now it seems to have all sorts of problematic autocorrections - it will always substitute "three" instead of "the", no matter how precise my swiping, and "off" instead of "of" too frequently. Or it'll put words like "sweeping" instead of "swiping" even though the characters swiped through are significantly different. And one particularly irritating characteristic now is that it frequently puts a correct word that you've swiped, and then once you swipe another word or two it'll go back and change the word to something entirely different. It also has a predilection for suggesting and correcting to random capitalized (presumably proper nouns although sometimes it's unclear) words such as "Soo" instead of "so". It also just generally doesn't seem to be as good now about predicting words or suggesting the correct word based on swiping, particularly with slightly more complicated words.
As an example - suppose I'm trying to swipe to type "the wiring is". Instead, even though I'm being fairly precise in my swiping, it will put "three writing ISS". Or, if I'm talking about "olive oil", it will instead put "Oliver oil" or "Olive oil", even though I don't know anyone named Oliver and it shouldn't be in my contacts, and I didn't press shift before starting to swipe. Nothing egregious, but quite irritating when it happens a lot, and it didn't used to occur so much.
I do like the narrow trail for the swipe path, and overall it's easy to use - but the aggravations listed above seem to be worse than they used to be.
App gets laggy only on Snapchat 3/5
By my evil twin
The app is perfect. The only issue I have is that it gets super laggy on Snapchat and a few other apps.
burmese language 5/5
birmese language not support ios
5 star reveiws are always the best 5/5
It made my life so much easier and it's also really fun! I made my keyboard letters blue and my keyboard a picture of my and my dog.
Hey keyboard is clean as hell, as well as the options of back-skins on the keyboard itself. It’s wonderful to see the progress over the time of them creating this for us. 😜
P.S; The man who's eventually wife Marie.
I love g board 5/5
The most amazing app ever.
I just wanted to note that while using iPhone here with the Gboard, when I try to select something that I’ve typed already to edit my message...... it scrolls over to the beginning of the message and gets stuck. That is, the cursor gets stuck. It makes it nearly impossible to use Gboard with the iPhone because I often times have to edit a message.

Have always loved the GBoard 4/5
Recently switched from multiple Samsung Galaxys to an iphone XR after using Galaxys for the last 6 years and Ive always used the gboard on my Galaxy phones. It is a very user friendly keyboard and very customizable. Ive never had any issues with the gboard until now when I use it on my iphone. I am unable to silence the keyboard click sound. I didnt have this issue with my Galaxy because I was able to turn off any and all system sounds, but unfortunately with the iPhone XR I can only mute the keyboard clicking sound on the standard iphone keyboard. When I go to the gboard settings there is no keyboard sound setting. Hopefully they can make that happen cuz other than that I love everything about my gboard. Much more user friendly than an iphone keyboard.
iPhone 6s 3/5
By Resting Umbrella
The keyboard has to be set for each new screen it encounters. Even then the iPhone keyboard would often pop up for things like forms to fill out, and sometimes the gboard would disappear and I’d have to reset it up. It also didn’t work as quickly as the iPhone keyboard and would delay after pressing. I love this keyboard on my Google Pixel 2 but it didn’t work very well on this iPhone.
Getting frustrated 3/5
Was happy with the keyboard but as of late it's acting up. I am having problems typing, the keyboard flutters constantly. I am going to remove it.

It's not the ssme 2/5
had a pixel phone and it worked fine on an iPhone it's crap
No Armenian 1/5
Why There is no Armenian? So disappointed
I've been using Google keyboard for years now. Lately, it crashes or lags constantly. I don't know if it's Apple's fault or Google's but it's bad. It's quickly becoming a problem.
Hilariously, it glitched out while I was typing THIS MESSAGE.
Keep logging/frozen 1/5
It keeps on logging, loading, frozen whenever I use it which is all the time. And I’m pretty sure mine is always updated. I used to like this app but not this time esp when I have to make an urgent reply in emails or text messages.
Randomly slows down becomes unusable 2/5
I have an iPhone XS Max and even as I type this the keyboard is so slow I have to hit one letter wait a second hit the next letter to type. I hope they fix this soon or I'll uninstall. Really doesn't do anything the default can't do now
Stopped working on ios13 1/5
The keyboard freezes now and the letters get huge and I can't type at all. Also switches interface colors when I click to type numbers?? Had been my only keyboard used for a very long time, I hope they fix it :(
Very Good App 5/5
a Great app for Keyboard....👍🏻
Better than iPhones new swipe feature 5/5
So I’ve used gboard before and i LOVED it.
(Skip to the very last thing i typed if you want the short story)
I missed the swipe text feature on my galaxy that i did not have on my iphone so when i found gboard, i freaked! Full disclosure, my iphone is very much “google-fied”, as in, I use almost all the google apps on my iphone - google maps, google calender, gmail, etc. - so you have to understand my excitement when finding the google version keyboard.
Anyway, fast forward to a few weeks ago when Apple launched their new version keyboard with the swipe feature. I figured I’d give it a try and removed gboard completely.
After using it for a few weeks, i want to say i am just not a fan and missed gboard, it’s was WAY better.
So here i am, writing my first review while i reinstall this app because this is how much i did not enjoy apple’s new keyboard version.
Gboard is BY FAR the best keyboard app.
Amazing app 5/5
It is an amazing app you can customize your keyboard stickers make your own stickers and even customize the sound it's amazing!
Not for i7 1/5
Voice to app will work one time, then comes up with I didn't get that. Remover app and it will work 1 more time. I like the glide but not not at the sacrifice of cover to app.
Customizable and Smooth, but Glitchy 3/5
By Robblestone Kujo
This keyboard made the transition from Android to iPhone plenty smoother! Comfortable typing, fun customization, consistent auto correct and swipe typing included! But there are still quite a few issues.
First off, the keyboard actually has a tendency to crash a lot. When it display keystrokes, sometimes they will stay on screen for up to 30 seconds if it doesn't quit first. Another glitch that comes before a crash it that the text cursor will jump to the first line of the text box, messing up an entire area of text if you're not paying attention.
Secondly, the speech to text hardly works. It will occasionally allow for three seconds of speech to convert, but most of the time it immediately says that it didn't pick up what you said, and a second attempt will take you to Gboard settings.
Lastly, and I don't know if this is just an issue with iPhones in general, but when I switch apps and leave the keyboard open, I have to manually switch the keyboard back to the Gboard, because even after I disabled it, the app will change the keyboard back to default.
Overall I like the keyboard, but it's far from as good as the Android version is.
So many bugs, and a total fail in landscape mode. 2/5
. Horrendous word prediction when glide-typing.
. Using the space bar to move the cursor is very hit or miss - goes to the extreme ends of a line, hard to guide it to where you want the cursor.
. Causes some apps to lock up (YouTube especially).
. Pressing the voice dictation button more often that not switches to dictation mode, then immediately takes you back out of it.
. Pressing the voice dictation button nearly always switches to dictation mode, allows you to say a few words, then stops dictation mode after just a couple of seconds, forcing you to press the microphone icon... Which gives you time to dictate another couple of words before it stops again.
. Would love to be able to swipe the word "the" without GBoard inserting "three" all the time.
Landscape Mode Specific Bugs:
. As you swipe to type, GBoard stops accepting input momentarily, as if you'd taken your finger off the keyboard. The result is numerous random words, instead of the single word you tried to type.
. In certain apps, like the Apple App Store, turning to landscape mode and trying to swipe-type produces completely random text when the text input box is blank. It's as if the mapping of the keyboard doesn't get rotated from portrait mode.
"Select All" option is gone.
After selecting a lot of text, can't deselect text.
PadOS switches from GBoard to the iOS keyboard and often doesn't switch back to GBoard.
