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.
