Haptic feedback is a very interesting feature that improves the way you interact with your device. It is very popular among Android device users, while Apple device owners can only experience it in few circumstances with 3D gestures. Since this topic is trending in the jailbreak community, iOS developer Candoizo created a free jailbreak tweak called Harp that adds haptic feedback to your iOS music controls.
The tweak works by generating a “buzz” in the palm of your hand when you touch your iPhone’s music controls on your Now Playing interface in Control Center or on the Lock screen.
Harp adds haptic feedback to the following music control actions:
Play or pause music controls
Tap the next/previous song buttons
Skip backward or forward in a song using the audio scrubber
Adjust the music volume using the volume bar
You can enable the Harp tweak on demand in its preferences pane added to your Settings app and choose from the following options:
- Enable for Media Controls
- Enable for Volume Bar
- Enable for Audio Scrubber
Keep in mind that Harp tweak works only when you interact with music controls in Control Center and on the Lock Screen. The tweak will not add haptic feedback to the music controls of your apps themselves.
No matter which music app you’re using, such as iTunes, Spotify or any other third-party app, Harp lets you will feel the haptic feedback each time you adjust music controls in Control Center or on the Lock screen. This feature is extremely useful for music listeners, especially when they listen to music outside while walking or running; Harp brings haptic feedback to your music controls to ensure you don’t mistouch your screen when adjusting them.
The tweak works on all jailbroken iPhones running iOS 10. You can download it for free from Cydia’s BigBoss repository.
