For the most part, I love this! It's a great app that lets me customize my keyboard with a picture I want. I've used it for years. However there is one tiny issue. After 'adjusting' how I want the picture to sit, when I go to adjust the bright ess it shows the section is a LOT lower than where I actually placed the window, and I usually have to adjust it for it to sit in the right spot. I'd really appreciate if this could be fixed!!

It's no where as good as Swype, but it's still good. My main issue is it's lack of learning. That's extremely frustrating to me but i still believe it deserves a 4 start, bc, afaik, it's the best out there. The speak to text feature is outstanding, but it doesn't work for Google searches. Edit: as of 6.26.22, nothing has changed. Gboard needs to learn speech patterns. Very frustrating!

Gboard used to be great until a few updates ago. Now it lags every time the keyboard pops up. It takes a few seconds before you can begin typing with it, whereas before the updates it would just type right away. This lag results in entire words not showing up, or, depending on the length of the first words, only the last half of the word showing on screen. You then have to delete everything and start fresh. It is very frustrating. I've cleared all the caches, both phone and apps. Still does it.
