Enter time with keyboard instead of wheel

Is there a way to enter time into a time field with the keyboard instead of the wheel?

ios 7 makes this even worse having to use the wheel to enter time. Would make data entry much easier if I could use the keyboard to enter time instead of that finicky wheel!

Yeah, that new wheel is really annoying. You can't even tap outside of the focused number to select anymore; you HAVE to spin it.

Hey,

Back in the Palm days I devised what I assume to be the most efficient way to enter a time. The screen looked awful to the naked eye but it was very fast to peck it out. I would like to revisit that as I never thought the time selection on iOS was the most efficient. I see the value as it's very intuitive to use, but not very quick by any means.

It won't be at the top of my list, because there are some big fish still to fry, but hopefully some day I can do something better, and typing in the value may be the way it goes, but most likely just adding an on screen number pad..

I agree I think you need to reinvent the wheel. :D I hope that you can design the old Palm time selection onto the IOS version (rather than a keyboard) I have yet to see a more efficient way of generating time fields. This was one of the first things I requested when the IOS version was created, maybe most users never miss what they have never had.
Cheers, Graham
