Add haptic feedback to the Instagram app with HaptiGram


If you’re a jailbreaker that uses the Instagram app and also happens to enjoy subtle vibrations when performing actions (better known as haptic feedback), then we think you’ll take a particular liking to a newly released jailbreak tweak called HaptiGram by iOS developer iCraze.

As you may have inferred already from the context clues above, HaptiGram integrates haptic feedback into various actions performed in the official Instagram application for iOS. According to the developer, haptic feedback can be felt when doing any of the following things:

  • Tapping a Like button
  • Tapping a Comment button
  • Tapping a Save button
  • Tapping a Send button
  • When double-tapping on media
  • When closing out of a video that you were just playing

Like many haptic feedback tweaks before HaptiGram, this tweak lets you adjust the haptic feedback intensity. You can configure this and much more from the tweak’s preference pane, which gets added to the Settings app after installation:

HaptiGram Settings

Here, you can:

  • Toggle HaptiGram on or off on demand
  • Choose a preferred haptic feedback intensity:
    • Light
    • Medium
    • Hard
  • Toggle haptic feedback on or off for any of the following individual actions:
    • Liking a post
    • Double-tapping media
    • Tapping the Comment button
    • Tapping the Save button
    • Tapping the Send button
    • Closing out of a video

The developer includes a shortcut to open the Instagram app from right inside the preference pane, which works as a way to quickly see how your new settings change the Instagram app experience.

HaptiGram works with jailbroken installations of iOS 11 and later and works with the latest version of the Instagram app, which at the time of this writing is v117.0. If you’re ready to give HapticGram a try, then you can purchase it for $1.50 from the Packix repository in the package manager of your choice.
