Native App Dev Question About Making Field Labels That Do Not Disappear

Hi,
This question applies to both IOS and Android. What do I tell developers to fix a problem in which the user types into an edit box, and the field label disappears? This is like on the web, when the placeholder attribute goes away. I'm unsure what to tell the devs to do to make a field label stay on screen, since I'm not an IOS nor Android native developer.

Thanks.

Jim
