    Georgian Keyboard is going to bring up a selection of keyboards for us.
    Now, it is important to understand that what we are doing here is installing a third party application to the iPhone 6 which integrates with the operating system and allows you to use a keyboard that is not in the iPhone 6 list of keyboards. There are a number of languages in the world that are not included in the iPhone 6 and it is actually a bit surprising that Georgian is not there because some other languages like Armenian are there. So, This character here, this is another character here. These are Georgian language characters.

  10. 10
    Then waiting for the system to load and show you the reviews and then you are going to want to scroll down and you are going to want to see which reviews are accurate, which reviews are good and in some cases, which reviews look fake.
    At the moment, the reviews are not coming up for some reason here. The iPhone App Store has been a little bit touchy lately. Not sure why that is.

    Anyway, let us see if this one comes up.
    This is the one that I found to be best. The Extended Georgian Keyboard by Giorgi Shavgulidze. I believe that is the correct pronunciation of this name. I could be wrong though.

    It has got a number of features that the other keyboards do not have and it appears to be relatively well done and it has less reviews.
    However, overall the reviews are good. If you scroll down, the bad reviews are simply because it does not work on older versions of iOS as an example.

    Once you have configured the sound that you would like to have, you can skip the rest of these options:
    How to, Privacy are functions that the developer has not currently built. Facebook and Twitter, you can share or tweet if you want. About us and Donate are also options.

    When you have New Keyboard selected to add, you will see that I have "THIRD-PARTY KEYBOARDS:
    When using one of these keyboards, the keyboard can access the data you type". What this means is that any messages or other things that you are typing in your chosen language will be able to be seen by the third-party. Third-party in this case being the keyboard manufacturer but it could be some one else as well.

    However, if you scroll down through here, you see we have like a Cherokee keyboard, a Croatian keyboard, an Estonian keyboard.
    We do not have Georgian anywhere in here though which is a bit unusual but that is how it is now that the iOS supports third party keyboards, it is not really that big of a deal.

    I can simply go back through my keys or I can tap the actual keyboard itself

  32. 32
    Now if you tap Allow Full Access, it is going to let you know that the developer of the keyboard can transmit anything that you type.
    This is information, credit cards, etc. You can allow this if you like. In my case, I am not going to allow it.

  37. 37
    I have my Russian keyboard, I have my beautiful Emoji keyboard and then I have my Georgian keyboard, right there.
    And there, is my Georgian script.

  38. 38
    Now there is no automatic or predictive text here because I have not allowed the developer to have access to that.
    If I would like to set up predictive text then I simply go back and I check that box to allow the developer to have access to those sections of the keyboard. It only affects things that are typed in Georgian so as long as I am not sending people my credit card details in Georgian, it should not be a major concern. So, if you are using the Georgian keyboard or any other keyboard for a language that is not natively supported by your iPhone, then this is how you would install a keyboard. Let us go ahead and press the home button one time. That will take us back to the home screen.
