Typing on a Phone



I must have stubby small hands because my typing sucks when I use the regular keyboard on my iPhone. Good thing Google created Gboard, an add-on keyboard, for iOS. I don't know why Apple's keyboard is terrible for me, but Gboard might change your life if you type the wrong things.

It has all the things you would expect from a great keyboard — GIFs, emojis, and Glide Typing — plus Google Search built in. It just saves me when I mistype and the autocorrect just works better. It also learns words that you type frequently which is nice because my iMessage lingo is unique (aka trashy).

Pros: Autocorrect works amazingly and has Glide Typing functionality

Cons: GIFs could be a bit better (I guess I just prefer like using Real Housewives GIFs).

A quick tip for those using a different keyboard, make it your default keyboard or you will constantly need to switch to your preferred keyboard:

  1. Enter 'Settings' on your device.
  2. Tap on 'General'
  3. Scroll down to 'Keyboard'
  4. Tap on 'Keyboards'
  5. Tap on 'Edit'
  6. Tap and drag your desired keyboard to the top of the list.
