      Apps like this show the potential is there but Apple is going to have to improve their side of the user experience before customer keyboards can go mainstream.

      Adding the keyboard via settings after you install the app is going to lose 80%+ of most potential users.

      Meanwhile the whole cycling through keyboards to pick the right one is frustrating and has too many taps (I have two different language keyboards + EMOJIs + now Goji), especially if you miss the first time and have to cycle through again. Right now, for the use case Goji is targeting, I'm almost as quick opening the Yelp app, finding a coffee shop, copying the link and pasting it back into the chat app

    Thanks for the feedback friends! We built this quickly and are iterating just as fast. Love constructive critique. ✌

      It is currently not available in my area, but from the video on the site I feel I have a pretty good grasp on what it does.

      It is an iOS8 keyboard that takes your location and populates nearby locations for people to meet. An example use case would be - Your friend txts you asking if you want to go get a bite to eat, you click on the food icon, it auto-populates nearby food joints and you swipe through the results ultimately "typing in" your choice.

      Keep in mind it's a keyboard, so it should work anywhere you can input text. You are not limited to only using it in a singular app.

    I love this! Although users may have to install keyboard from settings, I think this is really awesome. Yes, you may lose some people who may not install but it also feels very satisfying to have this cool feature until everybody else gets wise or less lazy, OR Apple makes it easier for "custom keyboards to go mainstream."

    For iPhone only? sure, because Android users are cheap, they will never buy you coffee or anything...

      My first reaction to this was "where is the Android version?" as well. After all, Android has supported custom keyboards for years - so why did it take iOS 8 for people to finally come up with the idea that keyboards shouldn't only be for typing? (Maybe the Android SDK doesn't support something like Goji)

      How do you come up with that ridiculous statement?

      Have you people ever considered that there might be other factors at work for NOT providing an Android/Windows Phone version or vice versa?

      Some people actually like developing for iOS more than for Android (and also vice versa), maybe they like the app infrastructure and eco system more? Maybe developing 2 or more apps in different eco systems is just not in the budget? So the answer is not always the stereotypical Apple-Fanboyism, but an actual business or developer decision.

      It's always terrible for me to see a good product launched (I'm not saying this is, but generally speaking) and people complaining because their favourite toy isn't supported.

        My most sincere apologies, Raphael. And I don't think I need to write 4 paragraphs to explain I was precisely making fun of that group of people you assume I belong to. I should have used "sarcasm" tags but thought it wasn't necessary.

        Will do next time, though.

          It is difficult to convey that sort of sentiment in written text, especially when I've seen it written and meant exactly like this before.

          My apologies then.

    From the installation guide published on iTunes:

    "1. Open Settings ... ... 8. Toggle on 'Allow Full Access'"

    Can someone explain why every single keyboard extension needs full access to my iPhone, please?

    The deal should be: If you want my data, explain why. If there's no explanation I'd presume that the deal is too take my data, sell it to data miners, no?
