Gboard — Search. GIFs. Emojis & more. Right from your keyboard. by Google, Inc.
DescriptionGboard 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
News and articles
And anything else youd 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
We know the things you type on your phone are personal, so weve designed Gboard to keep your private information private.
What Gboard sends to Google:
When you do a search, Gboard sends your query to Googles web servers so Google can process your query and send you search results.
Gboard also sends anonymous statistics to Google to help us diagnose problems when the app crashes and to let us know which features are used most often.
What Gboard doesnt send to Google:
Everything else. Gboard will remember words you type to help you with spelling or to predict searches you might be interested in, but this data is stored only on your device. This data is not accessible by Google or by any apps other than Gboard.
Customer ReviewsBest app store keyboard for sure (4 stars)
If you like swipe keyboards or just like the convenience of searching on the fly from your keyboard, this is the one to get. In comparison to the stock apple keyboard with emoji, much of the same design language is present, and so are all the features with it. It looks like if the Google app had a kid with the apple keyboard. Searches are basically just a little window to search in, and search results appear as Google cards, kind of like Now
Needs optimized layout for 12.9 inch iPad Pro (5 stars)
Gboard for iOS is the gold standard for third party keyboards for your iPhone or iPad - bar none, this is one trailblazer of a keyboard and as of now, I'd say it's better than the best keyboards out there for iOS - I was sold on it just seconds after I downloaded it and started to pick apart what this keyboard was capable of; shortly after, unsurprisingly, I was blown out of my mind by just how seamless & responsive the typing experience
Creates as many headaches as it solves (3 stars)
This is an app that is just another path to Rome. Everything it provides is doable without out it but perhaps not as conveniently. So the question is does it actually get the job done more quickly? In my view at this point it isn't so clear that in practical usage it won't annoy you as often as it helps you.
One of the big problems is with the cards. The info on them is limited. It can be hard to tell if a card is the one you want.
