For things like typing in your user name many games will want to pop up the standard builtin keyboard instead of doing their own. Best will probably be to have a function like

al_iphone_popup_keyboard

which you can pass the type (numbers only, ...) of keyboard and type of submit button.

    Sounds sensible.
    What I might prefer though, or like as an alternative, is a native dialog function that lets you enter a string (or a number, or whatever). That way I can request input from the user and have it work everywhere without changing a line of code.
    Doesn't catch all situations though.

    What I would really like is for someone (preferably someone else) to port ADIME to the A5 native dialog addon. I've never actually used it, but I've always thought it was a neat little addon with an interesting idea.
