As my app took shape, I noticed how unlike a typical iPhone app it looked,

and feel more like other iPhone apps. I have already had a lot of help from 
this list, but it seems there is no one packaged solution to getting an ‘iPhone 
look and feel’.

You mentioned the iOS native button doesn't look right. If it makes you feel better, the Android one doesn't either. So what I did was use a round-rect graphic as a button. Set the linesize to 1 and the round radius to 8. You can set the border color and the text color.

I use the same graphic for Android. Sometimes Android buttons have a fill color, sometimes they are just borderless text. I adjust those properties based on platform. IOS buttons use sentence capitalization, Android buttons use all-caps. The label can be adjusted the same way based on platform.

It's an easy fix and looks native.
