Come on guys, you need to fix this. That’s nonsense to not have a working currency validator in a product that’s been in development this long. There are thousands of use cases where you want to display the numeric keyboard to mobile users by default but what you want to collect is actually a dollar (or Euro or GBP or whatever) figure. That means . , $ need to not break the validation. This is common sense.
We need a real work around, not an excuse.
