Keyboard add-ons (accessories) and custom keyboards in iOSGuides | Tutorial By b2cloud 5 years ago
When the standard keyboard is not enough a keyboard accessory is often a good solution. I am talking of the one commonly seen in web apps, allowing the user to go between fields and drop the keyboard. These are extremely easy to add, and require very little code.

Building a custom UIViewControllerGuides | Tutorial By b2cloud 5 years ago
When building a custom UIViewController, I recommend against adding ‘uncontrolled’ views to your controller’s view, and instead invest a little extra time taking UIViewControllers and adding their ‘controlled’ views to your ‘controlled’ view, and then forward all appearance and rotation messages to your child view controllers. Doing so will ensure that if you ever decide to scrap the parent view controller or make vast amount of changes to it, your code will be isolated into your UIViewControllers.
Multiple UIWindowsGuides | Tutorial By b2cloud 5 years ago
When you need to display a view or view controller over every other element in an iOS application, most people go ahead and add it directly to the main window. This may work but can require a bit of tweaking in order to implement your own rotation code if you want to support more than one orientation, and could be later overlaid by things that are supposed to remain behind.
Instead of adding it directly to your existing UIWindow, a better solution is to create a new UIWindow on top of the existing one and then adding things to this UIWindow. It’s recommended to add a UIViewController to this window so all rotations are handled for you.
