react-native-text-input-reset

This package provides a temporary hack around a bug found in some android keyboards so that the contents of a TextInput can be properly cleared. https://issuetracker.google.com/issues/36928977

It's likely this will be solved in a future release of React Native. https://github.com/facebook/react-native/pull/12462
