User Reviews/Opinion:

  • Ironically, this works perfectly fine anywhere except one place – while writing app reviews on Google Play Store. If your review exceeds a certain length (5 lines for me), then the virtual keyboard tends over appear on top of the text of the review. The issue persists whether you hold your phone in portrait mode or landscape mode.
  • People are flabbergasted when they watch me Swype with this keyboard. “Wow! How do you do that? You must be a genius!” – which I am, but that’s beside the fact that Gboard is quick to use. In addition, it supports languages other than English. It supports Danish; most multi-language options usually skip Danish.
  • Only one problem that I have with this app. When we want to much space in a line I always long press the space key in other boards, I don’t like it’s theme so I changed to gboard I like it’s theme but the problem is that when long press space button for too much space in a line it doesn’t add space on long press and show the language change pop up menu. There is already a language change key on the left side of the space key. This is the reason for 2 stars. So I have a suggestion that you should remove the language change pop up menu from the space key on long press. Please work on it.
