The keyboard of your mobile device is the place from where you communicate with your mates and the starting point for your interactions whether social or not. It's important that you know how to use it well and that you feel comfortable with it. Otherwise, the way you express yourself could be faulty.

Gboard includes all the greates features of the Google Keyboard: speed and reliability, swipe-typing, voice dictation, as well as built-in Google searches.

You can even sync your customized dictionary on several devices.
