Open Source Control Allowing You To Add A Customizable Row Of Keys To The iOS Keyboard

I’ve mentioned a number of controls for customizing the keyboard such as Custom iOS Keyboards that allows you to set up a completely custom keyboard.

Here’s another excellent UI control for customizing the keyboard called Quayboard from Daniel Ferrely.

Quayboard allows you to add a customizable row of keys that looks and behaves like part of the native iOS keyboard. The size of the keys automatically adjust based on the number of define keys.

Here’s an image of Quayboard in action from the readme:


And the keys were defined with the following code:

[quayboardBar addKeyWithValue:@"1"];
[quayboardBar addKeyWithValue:@"2"];
[quayboardBar addKeyWithValue:@"3"];
[quayboardBar addKeyWithValue:@"4"];
[quayboardBar addKeyWithValue:@"5"];
[quayboardBar addKeyWithTitle:@"?" andValue:@"\t"];

You can find Quayboard on Github here.

A great way to easily add a customizable row of keys.
