This jailbreak tweak lets you tell time using vibrations

Many people will think this tweak is completely devoid of usefulness, and to an extent I agree, but you have to admit that the idea and execution is original, and well done.

VibeTime is a jailbreak tweak available on Cydia, that allows you to tell the current time using vibrations. That means that it’s totally within the realm of possibilities to tell the time without pulling your phone out of your pocket.

Sure, not many will find a real world use for this, but the idea and execution is pretty interesting…


I could definitely understand how a feature like VibeTime would be of help to those who may be visually impaired. I could also see it being useful for checking the time while in a meeting, assuming there are no clocks on the wall, or on your wrist (admittedly, highly unlikely).

Again, it’s not something that everyone will get excited about, but you have to respect how well executed it is. If you’re interested, you can download it for $2.00 on Cydia’s BigBoss repo.
