The PopKey iOS 8 animated GIF keyboard app will be a world’s first and you can be notified about the release date by heading to popkey.co. It’s not clear exactly when the new 3rd party iOS 8 keyboard app will release, but we are hearing a release window of a couple of weeks has been set. This means the application should be ready shortly after the iOS 8 public release date on September 17th.
PopKey’s Animated GIF keyboard will allow you to pick from thousands of cool GIFs that the developer has collected. These range greatly from Bruce Lee to current pop stars and other celebrities.
We’ve included the official video below that details the PopKey Animated GIF keyboard features for this iOS 8 app. When browsing for an animated GIF to send through iMessage, you will notice the options listed by recent, featured, favorites, and popular.
You can also upload your own Animated GIFs and this allows users to personalize their iOS keyboard like never before. This is all made possible thanks to Apple’s desire to be more open with their mobile operating system, and adding custom features like this will only encourage less people to jailbreak their iPhone and iPads.
