Unfortunately, tkinter is not designed to create mobile applications. Tkinter does not have the ability to open the keyboard, as it is designed for computers, not for mobile phones and tablets.

Adding on to Nate here, Replit AI (and all AI in general) can hallucinate/spout nonsense. It can also have absolutely no clue what it’s talking about, such as here.
