It's close to being as good as GBoard, but it misses the mark. You really have to dig through the settings after you first install it to get things just right, so I think many users will be driven away by that. The UI is starting to feel very outdated. Overall, it's decent but I think the settings should be organized more like Swiftkey or GBoard and have a search button as well to make things easier.

Beautiful, but I am so confused. This thing goes deep! The text editing navigation keyboard has a button you drag up to access numbers & punctuation but it ONLY inserts a ! when you touch ANY symbol. And what is the control key for?? Swipe LEFT or RIGHT to switch from letters to numbers and punctuation. There's also an option "space switches keyboards", but it doesn't do anything but insert a space. So I don't know what they mean by that.

Very good with a couple knitpicks. Word prediction/correction needs some work and are worse than gboard and swiftkey. For example, if I accidentally hit v or b instead of spacebar, it doesn't have a correction of two words. Wish I could have the arrows (w/ home & end) on any layout without needing to swipe up. It'd be nice if I could add to the included 2byte ASCII kaomojis (custom input) since ones I regularly use aren't listed.
