Selecting a dropdown control value issue

We have an issue with the dropdown control when a user is trying to select the very last value displayed in the dropdown. The list contains a choice column and has 17 possible values. When the user tries to select the very last value (on a iPhone) the entry is randomly selected and not the proper one; when you select the last one, PowerApp decides to select the one that is maybe 3 or 4 entries above the one the user is attempting to select. We even tried adding dummy entries (just a dot) as the last entry, but still, cannot select the entry with the proper value. We have very frustrated users as they cannot select the entries, and we don't have a work around. Any suggestions are greatly appeciated.

Re: Selecting a dropdown control value issue

Hi @Anonymous,


Thanks for the feedback.

I think this should be related with the touch experiences within PowerApps mobile App under IOS device.

Please take try to extend the Choice options with some additional Blank option:


This should make the last option easy to select.

Re: Selecting a dropdown control value issue

Thanks for the workaround Michael, I had done that already to temporarlly resolve the issue. Could you let me know though, when will it be corrected so that we don't have to have 'extra' values? It would also be great, if PowerApps set its the standard way you get to select values in iOS devices (the wheel scroll)
