Since SailfishOS doesn't offer native online banking apps, I am currently helping myself out with an Android based solution. The issue is that I can not properly enter amounts like EUR 172.50 because the available SailfishOS number keypad simply doesn't give me the possibility to enter amounts with a decimal place but only numbers with plain amounts.

Do you have the possibility to use the bank's services on web?

This is not a solution, but a "workaround":

I've got the Android app rShopping installed, and have the same issue with numeric input fields.

My workaround for that is to just "copy" the decimal-sign ("comma", in my case) to the clipboard - either after having entered it in a textfield within the Android app, or from e.g. Jolla's app Notes - and then just "paste" it when needed.
This is not an ultimate solution, merely a functioning "workaround".

I have this problem with Android-banking app, too. I've used the clipboard for comma.

I think the problem is the that the wrong keyboard is used. Isn't this the keyboard for entering phone numbers.

I have the same problem with my Danish online banking apps, which are one of two reasons have having alien-dalvik in the first place. The other is buying public transportation tickets.

@phle Thanks, It is what I also did. :) But in the end, we want things to run smooth, don't we? ;) @lakutalo It would be possible, but it's really clumsy to use. @hetas Yes, I too think it's the phone dialer.

I think this is already known and may be a duplicate to my posted topic 'missing '.' in alien dalvik numeric edit'. Sadly it is not fixed.

So maybe you could make an support case to get more publicity on that.
