Real keyboard

Can i prototype a mobile aplication using phone keyboard to do some inputs?

I`m need to simulate an advance search using input with “key/Gamepad”. on desktop works… not on the phone

This is possible, but not easily.

  1. This would only be possible with interactive components;
  2. You would need to use a digital keyboard like this one, and make it usable like this one
  3. You can also go overboard and create “usable” writing fields with something like this.

It’s a bit overly complicated but with the right components, you could create re-usable form input fields and create a prototype that works on mobile.

Still, you’ll always need interactive components.
