It's been a while since I've used the Google keyboard, or gboard as it's named now, but I'm must say I'm impressed. I've used it in its early stages and while it definitely wasn't bad or anything, it wasn't quite for me. I've decided to give it another look and I'm liking. It has very nice swiping prediction, it finally got a numbers row, love love love the button to access the ?!# characters on the go and more options to customize it even more. Did I mention it was FREE? Really, a great job by Google. FINALLY, predictions/corrections in the Google app. Not sure why it took so long, but I guess better late than never.
The keyboard sometimes does not show up. Also, would be great to have more responsive glide typing, e.g for short words or for space bar moving the cursor. Moreover, Russian language layout is a mess (ь & ъ, е & ё on the same keys). The space bar should not be used for language switching if the language switch key (a globe) is already there. Otherwise, great keyboard and pretty much easy to use.
Gboard STILL lacks the ability to temporarily or even permanently disable auto spacing between words. This means heavy usage of backspace when writing web addresses, getting Google search suggestions, and when typing combined words which are common in European languages. Swype has solved this vital feature years ago. In the positive side, Google keyboard is very practical to use. Automatically storing new words, easy to delete several part words, easy to navigate sideways in text, quick access to special signs, and the keyboard adapts well to the context.
Love it. It's much better than before. Love the themes, Emojis, glide typing, customizable creatures.. Awesome job guys! The only issue I'm having is it for some reason on my LG running Android 7 I'm still getting the older emojis. But on my Samsung j7 Prime running Android 6 I'm getting the newer emojis which I like far better. Does anyone know how to fix this or what is possibly causing it? Thank you
One of the best keyboard apps I have ever used! I have tried others and always come back to Gboard! It is one of the first apps I install on any phone, even on iPhone it is great! The word prediction and auto correct could be a little bit better, but over this keyboard is very well balanced. The various themes, and the fact that you can design your own personal them makes this keyboard all the more aweome! Cheers Google!
It's super useful and much easier to use than most. It tends to freeze up or not show up when it should and tends to stick around when no longer needed on the screen. Everything else is good. Going to need to tweak the dictionary though, cause it says words are spelled wring and then tends to correct the good spelling of a word with a completely different meaning. Those are the two problems I would like to be considered and corrected. Everything else is as it should be. Good app! Super useful.
