Probably one of the best keyboard applications that we can install on both Android and iOS devices. Back in 2016, it was first introduced for iOS and later made its way to the Android devices. One of the most well-rounded keyboard applications, Gboard is lightweight and minimal, has a fairly accurate autocorrect that reduces the accidental typos, and word prediction. It also has a floating mode and a one-hand mode that comes handy when using large-screened devices.

The fact that it has a translation feature inbuilt and allows you to switch between different languages seamlessly is the icing on the cake. Oh yes, did I mention that not only Gboard is free to download but it is also completely ad-free.

Like Gboard, Swiftkey does not need any introduction. It has been one of the most trusted and stable keyboard applications for long.

Imagine the embarrassing situation after you’ve sent a grammatically incorrect message to your client or your boss.  Swiftkey not only helps in typing fast on the phone, but the built-in dictionary ensures that you do not mistype and helps you send grammatically correct messages.  

It also comes in with a ton of customization options and like Gboard, even the Swiftkey keyboard is available for free to download.
