    "Swype is one of the oldest keyboards for Android and more recently iOS. The premise is you just swipe your finger around the keyboard passing over the letters in the word and it will type the word you're thinking of for you. When it works it's pretty magical, but it takes some retraining of your brain in order to do it with speed."

    "Gboard is one of the best keyboards available for smartphones. It has many dictionaries and many language inputs for you to choose from. I personally love its glide typing action, it's amazing how fast you can type words with it. Another great thing about gboard is its great accuracy when using the glide function. I'd definitely recommend using this keyboard on iOS and on any other smartphone!"

    "This keyboard is not for iOS, if it was I think people would find it very useful and easy to use. It has a very pleasant and easy to use interface and it's simple design makes it less boring than other keyboards."

    "I still use this the most since it is faster for me and easier to type with. I wish that this app could try and keep up to date with the new emojis styles that Apple updates often. Also I wish that the Japanese language could be added to this app as well please. I also wish for unicode, symbols, and icons. These are what I have recommended because I would have to switch other keyboards very often which would be annoying and I would like it that this app could make it a little more easier by trying to add these features. Well I still use this app a lot more anyways so thank you and keep working hard at making this app my top keyboard."
