In the wee hours of the morning the nice folks at Google pushed out an update to the best third-party keyboard available on iOS — Gboard — further solidifying its lead over other its rivals.
This update sports a number of great additions, but the feature that I’m most excited for is the added functionality of 3D Touch! Gboard now mimics the 3D Touch gliding functionality of the native iOS keyboard introduced with the release of iOS 10. By hard pressing anywhere on the keyboard you can now move the cursor about in any direction to your heart’s content. The days of looking through a tiny digital magnifying glass are over!
Other updates include beautiful new themes, brand spanking new emojis and the ability to quickly and easily search and share contacts!
The only thing missing from the app for me now is the support for a Russian keyboard.
