In my app, I have multiple ways to add an entry to a list. I have the plus button at the top right, like in this picture:

enter image description here

The user has three ways to add an entry to the list. However, the plus button only can lead to one model view controller. I have three currently (one per option), and I would like the user to select the one of the three options to add an entry. What is the best way to present this?

You can present a modal view when adding a new row to allow the user to select the entry method (then redirecting to the appropriate edit screen).
