Native Text Input for Flutter
A text input widget built using the native
UITextView on iOS (this package only supports iOS for now).
Follow the instructions from https://pub.dev/packages/flutter_native_text_input/install
Why you should use this
Many iOS users are used to the subtle features provided by the native
UITextView throughout iOS. Even though Flutter provides a lot of useful widgets, many Flutter developers will notice that
CupertinoTextField provided by Flutter are not on par with their native counterpart.
The above shows just one of the missing text editing features in Flutter's
TextField, when comparing to the native
UITextView. Features like these are especially important if you're building an app that involves a lot of text composition (messaging, editing document, and so on).
To address this, this package simply wraps the native
UITextView as a Flutter widget.
