Hello, Im writing an app that uses "&" a fair bit because its faster for the user to type, I was wondering if theres maybe an api that allows for customizing the keyboard layout so I can change ", or ." to being the "&" symbol

Thanks

Not that I'm aware of and clearly not in out-of-the-box simulator builds. There might be a way to do it using native keyboard features..

I guess you could just make your own, by creating an entire keyboard of images with touch listeners.  

 

I assume that doesn't break any guidelines, though it might be tricky accounting for different languages etc
