Third-party keyboards have really been one of my favorite iOS 8 features so far. And the fun-to-use GIF Keyboard from Riffsy has just added a great new feature with a recent update.
As the name suggests, the keyboard is all about making it easy to share hysterical GIFs or videos with friends and family that can be played directly from iMessage.
There are millions of options to select from, and the keyboard offers categories like reactions, music, trending, and more.
With version 1.3 of the app, users can now take advantage of the new GIF Stories feature. That allows you to share a number of GIFs in a row with just one tap and really opens up a new world of possibilities.
Leading up to Valentine’s Day, a wide selection of stories will appear in tags, search, and trending so you can express love.
The update also allows you to share full-screen GIFs.
A universal app designed for the iPhone/iPod touch and iPad/iPad mini, GIF Keyboard can be downloaded now on the App Store for free.
GIF Keyboard is really fun to use, and the addition of the GIF Stories feature makes it even better. I’m looking forward to seeing what images I can stack together.

And one of those options mentioned, SwiftKey Keyboard, just received a nice update yesterday. Version 1.2 brought built-in support for more than 800 emoji and SwiftKey Flow for the iPad and iPad mini.
