Is it possible to have an app that overlays itself – similarly to AssistiveTouch?

iOS Programming - Thu, 09/20/2018 - 10:42

I’d like to be able to map keyboard shortcuts to parts of the iPhone screen, my idea was to have a menu (like assistiveTouch) that could create boxes which would be bound to a key. The boxes could then be moved around the screen so that a key press would simulate tapping that part of the screen.

Is something like this possible? What APIs should I look into?
