What are the three most recommended keyboard apps?
There are many custom keyboard applications, however, there are 3 that stand out above the rest, these would be mainly: Gboard, Swiftkey and Chrooma . All of these are very good options if you are looking for quality and customization.
This app is the most popular of all, for good reason. This application was developed by Google and has a great capacity when it comes to predictive text, thanks to the inclusion of a machine learning system . It has thousands of Gifs and stickers to use. However, it does not have a highly developed aesthetic customization.
Swiftkey was the quintessential application for users before the arrival of Google and its superior technology, however, this is still very good because it has an aesthetic customization capacity superior to that of Gboard . So, if aesthetic customization is what you’re after, Swiftkey is your ideal custom keyboard choice .
