This keyboard is pretty streamlined in almost all aspects, and is very intuitive. I've only found one problem while using it, the word detection of a little off when 'swiping' a word while using the Colemak format. I'm not sure if it's a delay issue or if I've misunderstood the instructions. Update: the swipe feature on Colemak has gotten much better!

Constantly getting worse. It seems to only autocorrect using data from the illiterate rather than using proper English. It's difficult to compose grammatically correct sentences due to it not understanding English grammar. It seems to only suggest word sequences which are complete nonsense and never learns, even though I constantly correct the horrible autocorrection which is wrong about 95% of the time. Highly unrecommended.

This keyboard sometimes changes to a floating keyboard - it is almost impossible to change back. I just spent several hours on You Tube tutorials trying to switch it back. The first time this happened was on an older Google phone and after a few hours of trial and error I figured out how to fix it. Now the new pixel 6 has a new protocol and even after several hours of research I am still struggling, it seems the only solution is a hard reset and or a new phone. This app is junk. Do your self ap
