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

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.

Needs voice to text that doesn't go to google.
That Hon3st Guy 1514 on 4/20/2018
I don't like when I go to do voice to text and it launches the google app.
Mikmeister on 4/20/2018
Except no options for cussing 😉
No multilingual support
T3kzero on 4/19/2018
It is inconvenient when you have to switch languages within a conversation. Other apps like swift key have had this feature for a very long time, even apple's stock keyboard does it too. Going back to swift key
Dot key disappears in different apps
p1uskid on 4/19/2018
Mostly minor issues, but minor issues decide the choices when all the competitors are quite good. In some apps, the dot key to the right of space bar for fast symbol typing disappear. The inconsistent behaviors is quite annoying. Also the symbols are very limited, apart from those showing on the key, you cannot type others. For example, you cannot type "greater than" symbol when in Chinese mode.
Keyboard translator
ozariya on 4/18/2018
This keyboard is much worse than other keyboards This keyboard not a good ,not helpful transaction not available. You need to get out of the new version quickly We're just waiting...
Best Keyboard App
Tylord88 on 4/18/2018
It's the best one I've tried, and I've tried quite a few.
Could be great ...
LennyS on 4/18/2018
I really want to love Gboard, but there’s one fatal flaw for me: you can only type in one language at a time. Gboard on Android allows you to type in three languages at the same time without having to change the keyboard. SwiftKey does FIVE on Android, but only two on iOS. I think this may be an iOS limitation, but come on. If SwiftKey can manage two, then Google can certainly manage at least that. Tap texting is also not as accurate/responsive as it could be. Swipe is excellent, though. I’d also love to see Bitmoji integration like Gboard has on Android. Add the ability to use more than one (or more than two, ideally) languages at once and you get five stars from me. The other items are just nice to haves.
Great keyboard! One complaint..
Three shuvs on 4/18/2018
Love the keyboard. Used it all the time on my Galaxy S8, and now using on the iPhoneX. Only problem I have is the android version has a google translator built into the Gkeyboard. The iPhone version does not. Will we be excepting the translation option in the iOS version?
It's okay
Chan303 on 4/18/2018
It's pretty decent. Used to use this keyboard all the time when I used to have Android. Predictions are decent as well as auto correct. Don't know if it's because this is on iOS but it seems pretty buggy. Keyboard doesn't open up sometimes on certain apps and it'll crash.
sci4mind on 4/18/2018
ممتاز جداً جداً 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
Google URL Shortener breaking links
justinlives on 4/17/2018
Unfortunately the keyboard is going to need to use another type of link shortener because the one in gBoard isn't working anymore.
Not Compatibility with Instagram Message
IRarelyRateApp on 4/17/2018
There is issue with the keyboard that prevent from IG sending Message. Please Fix It
Nice but
Ffkvjfmfngdnds on 4/17/2018
I think this app is pretty cool and there is something I don’t like. I don’t use the microphone because it sends the transcript to google. I think it gives away privacy. There should be a option where you can turn the send to google off.
Bangla Please!
Sahitto on 4/16/2018
Need Bangla Langulage as soon as possible.
Better than swiftkey
Djicyebbxks on 4/16/2018
Honestly a slick keyboard
jaminchanks on 4/16/2018
Gboard is King on iPhones
Xircuits on 4/16/2018
Swiftkey is King on Android because of the customization, but here on iPhone, GBoard is King. Long press the period to get other symbols and punctuations. Long press the top row to get numbers. Long press certain letters such as S to get accented letters. While I personally would like to be able to resize my keyboard, I can get used to this. I like the backgrounds provided too. Not to mention the Gifs available here can be seen by Android users, hurray! Overall, pretty happy. Thanks.
5 Stars
_fallenpetals_ on 4/16/2018
I think this app is great! I use it all the time and it makes typing so much easier!I especially love the glide function. 5 stars!
Slowly beating Apple keyboard in every way
Mrlemmers on 4/15/2018
Initially I didn't like this keyboard upon release. The auto correction was decent at best and the keyboard seemed a buggy mess, but then finally after dozens of updates (presumably because Google has billions of dollars) this keyboard has everything the stock keyboard has and then some. Recent updates have (finally) added a translucent effect for the stock theme as well as a top row with numbers (come on Apple). Not to mention slide to type which is scarily accurate as well as cursor control (which works as well as it can given third-party restraints). Name something and this keyboard probably does it and then some.
Good input method.
Good input method. on 4/15/2018
When you type in the input method, it will take a few seconds for the G bar to enter the box and the word will appear, hoping for a quick fix.
Couple of features missing
Ronakg11 on 4/15/2018
A couple of features are missing. The keyboard does not store custom words. I'm going crazy, trying to save custom words. The predictive text feature is also super dumb. I'm surprised these 2 very basic custom keyboard features are missing in gboard in today's app world. I have to tap on the custom words each time I type those in - even then, those would not be brought up by the swiping trail efficiently. Additionally, the settings key does not work when clicked on. The keyboard otherwise is fine but they DEFINITELY DO NEED TO FIX THESE ISSUES.
Doesn't remember conversation language
cromo647 on 4/15/2018
Would be almost perfect if not for the fact that GBoard does not remember the language of the conversation in iMessage. This works with built-in keyboards. I guess the reason for this is that GBoard presents itself too the iOS as a single instance, so all iMessage can remember is that the GBoard is used for a conversation with particular contact, but not the actual language. Still, I wish Google found a way to fix this.
Addition of numbers
jey0916 on 4/15/2018
Adding the numbers to the main board made it great. Still needs work on integration with other apps. It's still hard to use with Google owned YouTube.
Its an amazing app but...
MohanadHonda88 on 4/15/2018
We need a new way to change from a language to another a swype one, and the Custom theme which is transparent is very very very laggy and it was the main reason i replaced this app with another one :/
Personal dictionary not working
GT(@)(@) on 4/15/2018
The title says it all.
The Best, but have some problems.
Mehrab Parvizi on 4/15/2018
1) When I type persian digits in swipe mode, it types Arabic digits. Persian digits: ١٢٣۴۵۶٧٨٩ Arabic digits: ١٢٣٤٥٦٧٨٩٠ 2) Same as English, "Persian zero" has an outline shape ,but circle and more smaller. 3) Please add "Arrow keys" in keyboard to place accurate location of pointer in moving status in which editing words in touch mode is so troublesome. Thanks.
More productive keyboard
r.spags on 4/15/2018
Gifs could be better but addition of numbers are a great feature
we want to add google translate to options
4mamoun on 4/15/2018
Great application .. we want to add google translate to options
Support other Indian languages
H_Flx on 4/14/2018
Please support other Indian languages that the Android version supports!
Front facing numbers are here
you assign the nickname on 4/14/2018
The addition of the embedded secondary number row on the main keyboard is great. Clean up the voice to text recording interface to engage and disengage as smoothly as Apple's native keyboard and Gboard will be the better of the two hands down. Google's voice to text accuracy is already overwhelmingly more than Apple's efforts which makes little sense as Siri and Safari are powered by Google search, perhaps there is an unknown difference in voice to text cognition that has an extremely negative effect on Apple's frankly horrible voice to text capability. I'm on the edge of giving up iMessage and FaceTime because Apple's voice to text capability is so poor. I believe that is fairly self explanatory as to the prospect of future decisions. Sorry about the length, I have been unbelievably frustrated with Apple's simply terrible voice to text capability for quite a long while.
Swiping at last
plat-o-pus on 4/14/2018
I hesitated switching to an iPhone because it lacked the swiping keyboard functionality. Because my Android phone broke I had to use an old iPhone. I have been suffering for weeks. Right when I was about to buy a case with a sliding keyboard, I found this app. THANK YOU GOOGLE!!!!! I cannot believe these stupid iPhones lack this functionality. You just save me two years apple keyboard re-typing in my life.
Top row lettercaseing broken by numerals
Javbw on 4/14/2018
I have "show lowercase letters" turned off for my keyboard (to mimic older iPhoneOS1 - iOS 8) , and the top row only properly shows uppercase characters when it is auto-capitalizing the first letter - the rest of the time, the top row (qwertyuiop) is lowercase and ASDFGHJKL and ZXCVBNM is uppercase. The bug makes the keyboard look bad and mentally confusing. I like the idea of long pressing to get numerals - but this bug really mars the rollout of this feature.
fxxkccp on 4/14/2018
我在用五笔,发现至少Gboard五笔输入法很不好用。 一、标点输入不便,即使常用的逗号、句号都需要切换键盘;二、词库少,我发现很多词组打不岀来,另外截止目前发现"鑫"和"伪"两个字打不出来。
Thank you Gboard
Vića on 4/14/2018
App is much more usable since Serbian Latin is added. Keep up the good work!
Swipe for symbols too?
goldencoastalisha on 4/14/2018
Already love the new update to swipe for numbers without having to change the keyboard...what would make it even better is to swipe for symbols: !, ?, -, ., :, @, ", know the normal stuff. Hopefully it'll happen soon!
It's fine
Hulk1246257 on 4/14/2018
With the default keyboard This board really doesn't make anything that much faster. Sure I can swipe to type but it is so much less precise. And it gives some strange suggestions. It is easier on your thumbs so great if you have sore fingers With a gboard This keyboard really doesn't make anything's that much faster. Sure I can swipe to type but it is so much less Pricier. And it gives sooner storage suggestions. It is easier on your thumbs so great if you have sore fingers.
Keyboard request
Haris KK on 4/14/2018
Very good keyboard for android i used before. But in ios this keyboard not supported malayalam and manglish. Please add manglish key board.
Good product
Jackpxy on 4/14/2018
I use double pinyin, I think it's the best one what I used, I love it, thanks :)
Keyboard google
alaa kahlout on 4/14/2018
It’s very nice keyboard but we want to add mathematical calculations like this × or ÷ Not this * or / Thanks
Getting better!
BlueRocketSi on 4/14/2018
Love the number row, definitely a welcome addition. However, please allow us to either remove the emoji key if we don't want to use Gboard for emoji and allow us to remove the settings key, this can be mapped to long pressing the G button or spacebar.
This update fixed alot of bugs and is smoother
BarkleeSanders on 4/13/2018
This update fixed alot of bugs from last update of slow freezing keyboard and it not going away and the new number thing is cool too , almosr disabled keyboard today so this update can just in time.
New update is amazing!
Bwseattle1 on 4/13/2018
Thank you for finally putting the numbers on the qwerty keyboard! Hopefully punctuation will be next!
Best keyboard ever
Taken456789 on 4/13/2018
This is easily the best keyboard in the app store on both the iPhone and Android platforms, I have nothing but positive things to say. There's a few things I wish they could add but if they didn't I would even care because it's still miles ahead of any other keyboard on iOS Great update This keyboard has literally everything I could ask for and more. The things I happy about the most are the new number feature and contact menu, I honest think this is the perfect smartphone keyboard. Great job
yvdncfn on 4/13/2018
I can't type any number by swiping up on the top row.
Finally! Emoticons!!! ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
ThrillerMan82 on 4/13/2018
I've been using this for the past 2 years, but I've always wanted emoticons and numbers on the top row. Now we basically have both of those! My favorite features from the Android version are finally on iOS, and implemented well! Now I don't need a second keyboard for my favorite emoticons. ( ^ω^ )
Very nice app
Alexo Philip on 4/13/2018
Can u plz add malayalm too
Not working in iMessage anymore
bobbeifirocuwhdj on 4/13/2018
Gboard no longer appears in my iMessage keyboard list. I know it's installed in using it to write this review. And it works fine in the email app.
Jstelar on 4/13/2018
Unfortunately it's the only decent keyboard with swipe function that doesn't require Full Access. Google sneakily added and enabled by default a "share statistics" on settings. Google being Google. Having numbers shortcut is nice. Now we need comma button and shortcuts for interrogation and exclamation.
Thank you!
milic22 on 4/13/2018
...for adding Serbian (Latin) Best keyboard! SwiftKey takes a second or two to appear. Gboard is faster, better features, better looking...
It's ok
Jxjsidj on 4/13/2018
I like it but the autocorrect is a never ending problem
