I’ve always been a fan of jailbreak tweaks that bring haptic feedback capabilities to unsupported parts of iOS or apps I use frequently, and with that in mind, I couldn’t help but recommend a new free release called TapticTwitter by iOS developer Chloee.
Just as the name implies, TapticTwitter brings some much-needed haptic feedback to the official Twitter app for iOS.
Previous jailbreak tweaks brought similar functionality to the official Twitter app in the past, but unlike those, TapticTwitter steps things up a notch by providing haptic feedback for more actions within the app.
Citing the developer, TapticTwitter supports haptic feedback for all the following actions:
- Tapping on the Retweet button
- Tapping on the Like button
- Tapping on the More button
- Tapping on the Cancel button
- Tapping on the Search button
- Tapping on avatars/profile pictures
- Tapping on Tab Bar buttons
- Tapping on Direct Message (DM) threads
- Tapping on settings within the Twitter app
- And much more…
TapticTwitter depends on the Taptic Engine to function correctly, hence the name; that said, it only works on the iPhone 6s and later. Furthermore, the tweak only plays nicely with the official Twitter app; not with third-party alternatives like Tweetbot, etc.
If you’re interested in giving TapticTwitter a try for yourself, then you can download it for free from Cydia’s Packix repository. The tweak works with all jailbroken iOS 11 devices and doesn’t have any options to configure.
