Gboard updated with 63 new languages, including IPA (not the beer)

Gboard already supports hundreds of languages and dialects, but that's not stopping the team behind it from adopting more. Since announcing that the app had more 500 inputs back in December, developers have added at least 100 more. And now, we know of another 63 that have just been codified into Google's official rolls, bringing the total to 748.

Google rolling out new Gboard themes, including gradients [APK Download]

Gboard's stock theme is a little boring (and bright), but you can easily change it to something more to your liking. The available options have increased in the latest build of the app, too. There's a new solid color that should match that not pink Pixel 3, as well as a number of slick gradients.

Brydge's G-Type keyboard will make the Pixel Slate more of a conventional laptop

Alongside the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, the Pixel Slate was announced today. It's a big, expensive, 12-inch tablet with an optional first-party keyboard cover that turns it into a sort of half-measure laptop. For those seeking a more traditional computing experience (but not enough so to buy a traditional computer), Brydge has a product that may interest you: the G-Type keyboard.

What We Use, 2017 Edition: The stuff Ryan can't live without

I spend my days writing about technology, and I spend much of my remaining time playing with it for fun. Consequently, I have a lot of nerdy stuff that's become integral to my life, and maybe you're interested in what it all is. It's been almost two years since I did a "what we use" post, and a lot has changed. My preferred phones are different, of course, but I've fallen deep down the mechanical keyboard rabbit hole, too. Events have also conspired against me to require that I build a new desktop computer. Here are all the things (mostly keyboards) that I can't live without.

Grammarly releases Android keyboard to make your grammar more better

Spell check is, thankfully, something that smartphones support in this day and age. Grammar is a tougher nut to crack, though. On the desktop, Grammarly offers tools that go beyond a simple spell check, and now you can do that on Android, too. The new Grammarly Keyboard will pedantically pick apart everything you write in search of grammatical errors. However, it's a little lacking in actual keyboard features.

SwiftKey Beta's new Photo Themes lets you use your own images to create custom keyboards

One of SwiftKey's many virtues is its abundance of themes, which are all free to users. By my count – I hand-counted them twice for you, dear reader – the Microsoft-owned keyboard has 125 themes available to download. That number officially jumps to infinity with the latest SwiftKey Beta thanks to a new feature called Photo Themes, which allows you to use any image you want to create a custom keyboard theme.

Samsung Internet browser will get 'Smart Go Next' for better form navigation, also coming to Chrome

If you have an Android phone made by Samsung, there's a good chance you use the company's own web browser. Unlike many bundled browsers, Samsung Internet is built using the Chromium open source project, so it's pretty close in functionality to Google's Chrome, but better integrated with Samsung's wider ecosystem of apps. The developers of Samsung's browser are pretty quick to add new features, and the latest of these is a feature to help when filling out a form.

'Smart Go Next' is a relatively simple change, but one that could be very useful and save a lot of frustration.

SwiftKey Keyboard updated with new default themes and redesigned hub

SwiftKey is apparently using all that sweet, sweet Microsoft money to make some changes to the app. Starting today, a new version is rolling out with three new default themes and a redesigned hub.
