    It took a bit of time for me to get used to but it eventually worked out. A great alternative to Gboard with lightweight (10 MB) and has no unnecessary features (GIFs, stickers etc.)

    There is no way to get a default keyboard feel. Every single layout option has some idiotic decision like how if you want symbol hints your L key is replaced by an apostrophe. Ignore the shills.

    It's basically the open source alternative to Gboard doing all the same while also being privacy-oriented and trustworty (unlike proprietary virtual keyboards that undoubtedly are not your friend, unfortunately). OpenBoard is a no-brainer and I urge people to try it. :)

    The most customizable keyboard I ever found on android . It allows the user to use a personalized background, make your own keyboard with the letters, symbols, emojis, shortcuts to copy, paste, delete by words or by letters, etc ... also respects privacy as it does not have internet permissions.Highly recomended

    This key board is way more precise than Swiftkey or Gboard, and focuses on privacy.
