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 Gboard for iPhone and iPad supports the following languages: • Afrikaans • Arabic • Azerbaijani • Belarusian • Bulgarian • Catalan • Croatian • Czech • Danish • Dutch • English • Estonian • Finnish • French • German • Greek • Hausa • Hebrew • Hindi • Hungarian • Icelandic • Indonesian • Italian • Japanese • Korean • Latvian • Lithuanian • Macedonian • Malay • Maltese • Norwegian • Persian • Polish • Portuguese (Brazil) • Portuguese ( Portugal) • Romanian • Russian • Serbian • Simplified Chinese • Slovak • Slovenian • Spanish • Swahili • Swedish • Traditional Chinese (Taiwan) • Traditional Chinese (Hong Kong) • Turkish • Ukrainian • Vietnamese • Welsh • Zulu 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.

    Please for the love of god work on the app and make work as good as Swype which is 16 years old if I'm not mistaking, I can't find it in the ios app store not the real one I'm tired of Gboard sending stuff that doesn't mean anything in the English language doesn't it have any ability to learn, I wish you would treat it like Google the web page which demands advertising to be one of the first the three of your dead, please please work on the app but the old Swype which is ancient, or I'll have to leave Google as a whole when possible I know for search it's impossible got I wish our government would do what the European Union is doing represent the people not the mega corporations with their loggists what am I working for it's bought and paid for I swear I'm like a month away from going to regular 2 thumb typing it took me forever to type this simple stuff you guys are horrible
  • So far so good.

    So far the best keyboard option. I like the gifs and add-ons. One star removed, only because the glide isn't "quite" as intuitive as i'd like. There is a missing clipboard view. Also, would like the asterisks and underscore to be included on common punctuation shortcut (long press of .) Since it is a common used shortcut for *bold* and _italics_. Thanks for fixing the voice dictation option. This was my primary reason for installing this keyboard. It allows me to send quick texts while on the go.
  • Much better with recent updates

    Still has a few bugs like with the alignment of the q pop up when held but overall works much better on iOS 12 than it ever has.
  • Gboard is great!

  • BEST!

    I don’t know what everyone’s issues are. I’m on an iPhone 6. No issues. Instead of having a trillion different keyboards to choose from depending on what you want to do. This consolidates it all. Search, GIFS, stickers, one handed mode, swipe, voice texting, plus a lot of customization. The only thing I'd add, is a haptic feedback setting/switch and that's it.
  • Very handy and useful tool s
