Often times apps will add a custom input row above the keyboard (byword, ia writer, and many others). This would be super handy for search commands.

Hmmm..., that's not a bad idea. I think I'd recommend a row of mixed commands and symbols: <AND> <OR> <NOT> would be really popular, perhaps also <WITHIN ?>. The * symbol is also really hard to access currently. Frankly, I also get tired of switching screens to use a period, comma, or colon, too.

Another app that has incorporated an addition keyboard line is Textastic. It's a great idea.

Yes, this extra row would be really helpful. Very well implemented in Nebulous app for iPhone. I can create my own buttons, assign "macros" to those buttons, etc. See that app and perhaps you can "borrow" some ideas from it.

“Teach the way of God in Accordance” (Matt 12:14, NIV-Accordance edition)
“Those who live in Accordance (with the Spirit) have their minds set on what the Spirit desires.” (Rom 8:5, NIV-Accordance edition)
