Google reportedly developing keyboard for the iPhone
Google is working on creating its own keyboard for the iPhone, according to a new report. According to The Verge, the keyboard has been under development for some time, and includes features like gesture-based typing, GIF search and more. From The Verge:
If the rumors prove to be true, it wouldn't be hard to imagine Google's motivation for releasing its own third-party app for iOS. One-tap access to web searches right from the keyboard would ostensibly drive more users to Google's bread and butter.
Apple first launched third-party keyboard support with iOS 8, and we've since seen a number of well-known names like SwiftKey and Fleksy launch on the platform. However, third-party options haven't enjoyed much popularity on iOS since launch, so Google will have some work to do to lure users to its offering.
