◆ About gBoard gBoard is an iPhone keyboard that uses 3D Touch, with extensive integrations with services, Uber included. With gBoard, users can request for an Uber or send a calendar invite without leaving their current screens. It is now quicker to push requests than ever before.
◆ Why we built gBoard Slow app experience. There's an app for everything now. Despite that, there hasn't been a faster way to interact with the apps to request for services. We saw an explosion of API integrations by service providers, and saw an opportunity to combine Apple's latest technologies (3D Touch) with 3rd party keyboards. gBoard let's us focus less on switching between apps, and concentrate on important tasks - spending less time requesting for services via app, but quicker from your keyboard.
◆ Product gBoard has extensive integrations (Uber, Venmo, Google Calendar, Venmo, Todoist, Evernote, Twitter...) with customizable Hotkeys (U, G, V, etc.). Integrations are activated from the keyboard when a user "3D Touches" a Hotkey. From there, a simple series of prompts allows you to interact with the integration with a simplified textual interface. Once confirmed, you can click on the confirmation prompt to be deep-linked directly into the app.
