iTypeWriter adds classic sound effects, haptic feedback to the iPhone

Who doesn’t love the sound of a good typewriter? There’s something about the keys, something about the sound, that’s just soothing to the ear.

Relive yesteryear thanks to iTypeWriter — a jailbreak tweak that allows you to enable both haptic feedback and classic typewriter sounds (ding!) for $0.99 on Cydia.


The haptic feedback and typewriter sounds can be enabled together, or independently of one another. That makes this a decent tweak for those seeking only haptic feedback as well.

Be sure to disable keyboard click sounds in the Settings app before trying to use iTypeWriter, or else you might not hear the typewriter inspired sound effects.

Again, you can find iTypeWriter on Cydia’s ModMyi repo for $0.99. It’s not for everyone, and eventually you’ll likely grow tired of the sound effects, but even then it’s still an okay conversation piece.
