    Gboard - the Google Keyboard's review

    Published: 2013-06-07, by Peter Warrior.

    Android's new stock keyboard

    • Free
    • Awesome
    • It could have more innovative features


    Although it's likely that most of you have already installed a new-gen keyboard, mainly because it came built in past Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich), there are still some manufacturers that don't integrate it with their user interfaces, let alone devices stuck in Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) or earlier.

    Therefore, here it is, free for all, armed with all the expected features. First off, you don't have to lift your finger from the screen anymore, this keyboard recognizes the path and suggests accordingly. It's really an experience you'll get used to it really fast.

    Voice Typing might not be the panacea yet, but it's on a level undreamed of just a few years back, so try it before ruling it out. We regret Almighty Google hasn't added any feature from the most innovative keyboards on market nowadays in order to fully integrate it into current user experience. Perhaps the exception is the chance to link your keyboard to your Google account, hence working across and keeping your own dictionary on all your gadgets.

    That's how it works: if you already have a top-notch keyboard, nobody asks you to change it now. Otherwise, if you're still tapping keys one after the other, click on download above.
