    In which sense is a copy-paste of a press release a review??

  • Mike

    This is not a review at all, boo on lack of effort here! The keyboard is great, however; would have loved to see more critical thought on it. Check other blogs for how app reviews should be done.

    I have tried it as well as swipe and my favorite of them all is Swiftkey. I do use Go Contacts and Go Dialer but for my money (actually both free) Swiftkey is the better

    My issue is this:

    1- The keyboard records every input press, swipe, and type you make.
    2- They don’t have a privacy policy, we literally have no clue what they do with your info.

    Issues: If you put in your credit card number, they keep it.
    If you type anything personal, they have a record of it.

    Applications should not have that much access to your system. and as they say “If it’s too good to be true, it probably isn’t true”

      That is why I came to this site… worried that when I type in my user name and password, that whoever is monitoring GO is keeping my information… and I think I will be uninstalling because I’m afraid of accessing my bank account on my Droid!!!

    Anyone know how to contact the dev team? I got on the site but can’t find how…

  • TRUTH

    Mohammad I completely agree… This app is malicious. People need to stop rating this keyboard 4-5 it needs to be removed from the play store. Please everyone needs to rate this app as poor (1 star). They are stealing information.

    It doesn’t predict the next word; at best, it gives you ways to complete your current.often turn righr words into wrong ones. Emjois are separate download and apparently only work if you read. None of cute stixkwrs is Smileys work.
