In this video I compare the Android versions of SwiftKey, Gboard and MessagEase, and the native iOS keyboard apps.
This is my first ever YouTube video. I had never shot a video clip with my interchangeable lens camera or edited any videos prior to this. Unfortunately, because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic induced lockdown, I could not get myself a good microphone, so apologies for the poor voice quality.
Also, when I had first decided to do a video comparison on this topic, I had not really researched elaborately in advance, so there were a few niche features of these keyboard apps that I could discover only after shooting the main video with voice over, hence, there are few instances of conflicting information between what I speak and the displayed text.
I have also put in effort to include properly typed out captions, so please do try them.
In all, it took me 3 weeks to make this video from start to end.
