Regardless how the field is created, it seems we have no means of 
explicitly giving focus to a mobile-native field programmatically.

If that's correct it would seem adding that would be a reasonable priority.

If that's incorrect I'd welcome learning what the syntax is.

A good deal of good UX depends on this sort of graceful guidance for the 
user, which we can find in many competing apps.
