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!

I love the Google keyboard and the voice input capability. To me it is much easier to use than the Samsung keyboard that is the default with my Galaxy S22 Ultra. It uses one line less of the screen, which can be important with some apps. The one thing that really bugs me about it is there are no cursor control keys as there are with the Samsung keyboard. Yes, I understand that I can slide the space bar, but I would greatly prefer having dedicated cursor keys. You got that, Google? Fix this!

At times the autocorrect is a bit questionable, but overall this app is absolutely amazing. At times, I even use it like a magic 8 ball and get its input on making many of my major life decisions. While the results have been less than optimal, and I do not recommend solely relying on autocorrect to structure your life around...as the technology improves, I am confident the results will as well.
