Techlectic ... by Pat Hoover
In early May, Google launched another one of their phenomenal free Apps, called Gboard. This is one you've got to try. Seriously, it's fantastic...
So maybe your fingers are a little thicker than most, or maybe you're just not a great speller, or say you're in court and can't use the dictation feature you've come to love. Whatever the scenario, the fact is that all of us frequently find ourselves pecking away on our various
smartphones and their onscreen keyboards. Too often the results are poor and hardly acceptable, requiring careful and exacting proofreading lest we send out a text or email riddled with spelling and/or other sloppy drafting errors.
Happily, relief is finally here in the form of Google's new on screen mobile device keyboard. Gboard is free and easily downloaded and installed on both Apple and Android devices. Whether smart phone or tablet makes no real difference, Gboard will work for your mobile device and provide you with a far better and greatly improved on screen keyboard.
While not an entirely new methodology, Gboard's swipe technology is vastly improved over anything else currently available. In addition, Gboard offers spelling correction on the fly, photo and image insertion and more. I have had a lot of fun with the Gboard GFF feature allowing the user to customize GFF's on the fly and in no more than seconds lets users append highly specific animated images to one's message.
Go to either Google Store or the Apple Store to download Gboard today!
