Google have today introduced the Gboard, a keyboard that will be available on iOS devices that makes the need to open the google search page redundant as it has its own in-built search features.

The keyboard features a button on the upper left that lets you perform web searches, look for images or GIFs, or even search for emoji without ever leaving the keyboard. Results from web searches can be instantly pasted into a text box.

The keyboard also features word tracing and some pretty nifty features. It's nice that google brings such a cool service to the iOS for the enjoyment of Apple users.

You can download the Gboard on the Appstore.





Opera launched their inbuilt VPN service on their browser. What it allowed users to do essentially was to bypass usage caps or indiscriminate monitoring, allowing the user access to free streaming without the hassle of data caps or online monitoring. This will be especially useful to those who want a way to work around restricted internet access, like those pesky I.T. departments at work or elsewhere.

On installation on mobile devices, it removes all those annoying ad-tracking cookies, you know, the ones that stalk you all over the internet – and then try to lure you in with adverts that they feel you'd like and such.

Opera also explains that the app allows users to encrypt their local web traffic, for further privacy protection. This is useful when using unencrypted public Wi-Fi networks, too.

This helps people who would like to keep their business private especially with their personal devices. In this era of constant online monitoring, the Opera VPN is helping people bypass these restrictions and giving them a sense of privacy.


Chris Houston, President of Surfeasy, Opera’s VPN division, said in an announcement released this morning.“Every day, millions of people, from students to working people, find that social-media sites like Snapchat, Instagram and Facebook are blocked when they surf on their campus or workplace Wi-Fi. The same goes for video-streaming sites,

 “With the new Opera VPN app, we help people to break down the barriers of the web and enjoy the internet like it should be,”


The good news now is-- the app has now come to the iOS, which means that users of the i-Phone and i-Pad also have access to the protection Opera's VPN provides. The user will have to open the settings page of the browser and turn it on as it's off by default.


The VPN app, at launch, lets you choose from one of five virtual locations: the U.S., Canada, Germany, Singapore and The Netherlands. It’s also available in several languages, including English, Arabic, French, German, Indonesian, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish.


An android version is already in the works, but iOS users...yay!
