KTTextView derives from UITextView enhancing it with new features. The only new feature at the moment is the placeholderText property. The placeholderText property works the same as UITextField's placeholder property.
To use KTTextView, copy the files KTTextView.h and KTTextView.m to your project. Replace UITextView in your source code and NIB files with KTTextView.
The string displayed when there is no other text in the text view.
@property (nonatomic, copy) NSString *placeholderText;

@property (nonatomic, retain) UIColor *placeholderColor;
Automatic Reference Counting (ARC) Support
If you would like to use KTTextView in your ARC-enabled project, you must add the
-fno-objc-arc compiler flag to the file KTTextView.m.
