Completely useless. We need different typing layouts (Tamil Trpewriter layout) to make it flexible for different users from casual to professional typists, Even the Google Input Tools in Chrome has multi input layouts for every popular language (Tamil Typewriter layout) !! Tamil is the oldest surviving language since 3000 BCE and still spoken as native tongue by 80 million people, Added Google CEO Sundar Pitchai itself is a Tamizhan.
Key for end of line symbol is not language specific. For example, Hindi language uses vertical line symbol (|) to mark end of line but Marathi language uses same symbol as English (.) Google has done great work in language specific products so I feel its an easy fix for the teak. Surprisingly after so many versions, this bug continues to be present and goes unnoticed by many users.
Its 4.8 rating from me! As I wished, with the gesture typing in English, this keyboard got better!Hope it gets sleeker and more responsive too with handwriting in Telugu so that it can touch that magical perfect 5 rating! But now it may get obsolete with the GBoard keyboard having all d features plus a lot more!
The InScript keyboard layout is removed in this update and replaced by a blunt, non-scientific and clumsy keyboard. Why? InScript has been prepared after a long research and has been accepted at many formal places in India. Google Indic keyboard is, as per my experience, the smoothest Indic keyboard. However, the removal of InScript layout is annoying! I hope that it comes back soon! I am uninstalling the updates till then!
It was very good before. After Apr 2017 update, it started freezing very frequently (not once before that update) on Android 7. Then I have to go to phone home screen and return to the keyboard for it to work again. I am waiting for a new update to fix this bug. On Samsung Note 5.
This is the worst keyboard in terms of personalisation. It doesn't learns new words from my typing habits even if I use the word almost daily in my conversations, it auto corrects it to some other useless word and then I have to retype the word again and again. Google you should seriously work on it.
