Gboard is a new keyboard from Google for your iPhone. It has all the things you would expect from a great keyboard — GIFs, emojis, and Glide Typing — plus Google Search built in. No more app switching; just search and send, right from your keyboard. Search and send anything from Google: • Nearby stores and restaurants • Videos and images • Weather forecasts • News and articles • Sports scores • And anything else you’d search on Google GIFs — Search GIFs for the best reaction Emoji Search — Find the perfect emoji, faster Glide Typing — Type faster by sliding your finger from letter to letter Privacy We know the things you type on your phone are personal, so we’ve designed Gboard to keep your private information private. What Gboard sends to Google: • Gboard sends your searches to Google’s web servers to give you search results. • Gboard also sends usage statistics to Google to let us know which features are used most often and to help us understand problems if the app crashes. • If you use Gboard’s microphone, voice input will be sent to Google for transcription. What Gboard doesn’t send to Google: • Other than your searches and voice inputs, Gboard doesn't send anything you type to Google, whether it’s a password or chat with a friend. • To help you with spelling and to predict searches you might be interested in, Gboard will store the words you type on your device. This data is not accessible by Google or by any apps, and can be cleared at any time. • If you’ve turned on contacts search in Gboard search settings, this allows Gboard to search the contacts on your device so you can easily share. None of these queries are sent to Google.



  • Doesn't play nice with Apples "Account and Passwords"

    By MikeReynolds
    Love this app but just never works when I enter "Accounts and Passwors"section in the settings of the iPhone. Would love to have multiple emoji suggestions like on the new iOS 11.1 keyboard. Apart from that pretty good.
  • Great things but...

    By megdelm
    I love the ability to google search, use speech-to-text, customize the photo on the keyboard.. there are so many things I love but the app just stopped working. The keyboard won’t show up sometimes. Sometimes, when trying to swipe, the keyboard decides to get sticky and sink off the screen. I just uninstalled it. I will be trying Swift key for a little while to see if that works better. Keyboard used to work really well but newest update is bad bad bad. Also, it would be awesome if the app could remember the words I actually use everyday rather than the misspelled version I accidentally typed in one time. Really needs a way to edit dictionary which words are suggested. ALSO! Please suggest emoji replacement as predicted for next word: I love adding emojis that come up in predictive text bar but I want the option to add them AFTER adding the actual word I’m typing. Please update so that I don’t have to type the same word in its entirety to get the emoji to be suggested again. Predictive text needs to be smarter!

    The new update will make you forget that you're not using the Apple keyboard.
  • Contradicting user security...!!

    By ThalmanThilak
    During the initial setup after downloading, it says “only searches are sent to google but nothing else”. But while using the keyboard you say all features are available only once the user gives full access. And when I do that it says that "I agree to send all sensitive information to the developer - including credit card information and street address" 😡😡😡

  • Almost Perfect

    By mziminski
    Gboard has everything I'm looking for in a keyboard: one handed use, glide typing, emoji search, and a dark theme. I was looking in setting and there is one setting that intrigues me a lot. Haptic feedback. Enabled it and nothing happened. I tried a few things, but nothing worked. Google, please work out this bug so that we can have haptic feedback when we're typing! The feature is there in setting, please fix it and I will update this review.
  • Too Slow, Poor UI

    By Phage0070
    One of the critical things a keyboard needs to do is be available when you want to type. Gboard simply isn't ready when you are, taking a second or two to load which is constantly frustrating. Another issue is that predictive text is too small. The bar takes up plenty of space but the text is perhaps a quarter of its height! Not only that but the keys look slightly blurry and oddly spaced. Overall it looks like an application designed for only the standard iPhone screen and not the Plus size. Also changing the Google button so it matches more with the theme would be pleasant. The swiping and word prediction work well, but the other issues kill it compared to superior competition from apps like SwiftKey.
