GIF Keyboard lets you quickly search for and copy a GIF straight from your keyboard for pasting into apps like Messages.

Search and browse. Search for GIFs by keyword or even by emoji. Browse by recents, favorites, or collections, or through categories including reactions, trending, music, and more. Send a GIF right there and then, or long-press on a GIF to access various sharing options.

Browse and save

Browse and save. Say you’re browsing the Web and then you stumble upon another Minion GIF you’d like to use to further amuse or annoy your friends with. Know what? No need to save it to your camera roll. Just use GIF Keyboard’s share extension to save it and make it instantly available from GIF Keyboard.

What is it about?

Instead of opening a separate GIF app, searching for your GIF, and copying and pasting it back into Messages or any app that supports it, GIF Keyboard is third-party keyboard that replaces this functionality. That way you don't have to jump around between apps.

For those who...

  • Use GIFs all the time
  • Have a reaction for everything
  • Like to make there messages more drammatic

Not for those who...

  • Don't like third-party keyboards
  • Don't know what GIFs are
  • Only send strictly professional messages

Why we love it

There's no need to jump around between apps to find a GIF when you're in the middle of typing.
