I’ve mentioned a number of projects for improving the iOS keyboard most recently JustType that adds some nice enhancements for faster typing.

Here’s an open source component from  Venmo that provides a completely custom keyboard implementation for calculator apps and custom text field for money calculation called VENCalculatorInputView.

To use the keyboard you will need to set the inputView of a UITextField or UITextView to VENCalculatorINputView, and delegate methods are provided for when a key is pressed.

Here’s an image from the included sample showing the custom keyboard and view in action:

You can find VENCalculatorInputView on Github here.

A nice component if you’re looking to create an app that needs a basic calculator keyboard.
