It almost seems like that Google even forgot they've ever made this app. It needs a major maintance in performances and features update. Whenever in the Godan mode, it writes corresponding number and the English mode... And I'd rather NOT start about that. Despite being the best Japanese keyboard available out there... It really needs to be updated urgently. Not to mention the very much useless English suggestion mode and no English autocorrection option present. It needs features update and PLEASE, PLEASE, fix that trashy english input mode
Two things, five stars then: 1: Swiping. Google's Chinese keyboard can do it! 2: In the number pad was an intelligent suggestion of which kanji should follow, like time or date or something you can count. Since your last update, it's gone. One more thing: In the Gboard, languages like DE or EN are combined in one keyboard. JP there would be so cool. I could live with a single switch latin<>conversion.
Problems: 1) You cant customise the keyboard very much like adding a role of numbers to the top. 2) The English typing sugestion is beyond garbage (you can write "becausq" and it would show you 4 different formats to write "becausq" in) 3) I typed this review using this keyboard and its like talking to a person who does not speak your language. Its a challenging game.
Add handwritting please. Japanese contains many Kanji characters which I could not type it using pronounsations, but only handwritting can, since Japanese is not my mother tongue. Although I can type it using Mandarin input, I feel upset when I need to change the input keyboard, moreover some Kanji characters in Japanese and Chinese do not share same code. Hope Google will solve this problem very soon. And now I found out that there are many keys on the Japanese Input Keyboard, this make me always type in wrong way, and the key on keyboard do not follow the US qwertyuiop standard, please solve it as soon as you could.
Why do you insist on installing these useless apps on my devices then stopping me from removing them saying they are system. I could understand that if I were in Japan or writing in Japanese that Japanese input would be useful, but I'm not. You're just wasting device storage that I'd rather use for an app I'll actually use.
Something is wrong with the Japanese keyboard. Previously I was able to switch between different Languages. But right now the Japanese 12 Hiragana keyboard can't be switching to other languages because the Sphere shape button is gone, now where to be found in the Japanese 12 Hiragana keyboard. Could you fix it ASAP please?
You don't need to look at the keyboard and screen separately to type a word.
