I have found it very frustrating trying to jump through all the hoops to have my app use a custom keyboard. I understand all the security issues involved in having custom keyboards that can access data with the iPhone and so on. I get that. I have sucessfully loaded a custom keyboard, but IMO this does not make for a good user experience for a user using my app which only requires a numeric keypad.
In all honesty, if Apple’s Number keypad included a simple ‘.’ I would not even be making this post. I have seen a tut that added a ‘Return’ key to that keyboard, but I wondered if Apple would approve of that. There is a blank ‘key’ at the bottom left and this seemed like a good thing to do. Anyway …
What I would simply like to have happen is that my ‘keypad’ is just a small view that appears at the bottom of the main view. It has numeric keys just like a ‘real’ keypad, but is an integral part of my app and not a keypad that can be used in any other application.
So my question is this? If I am able to make this work will it be rejected by Apple?
I’m probably missing a boatload of info, thus my query.
