Listening to music is probably one of the most classic uses of our iPhones, as the iPod/Music app has been present on the iPhone since it was released back in 2007. Ever since, it has evolved quite a lot, but there are still certain limitations to it which make it unlikable by many people from all around the world. Today, we are going to discuss about Feedback, which is a Cydia app created by Ron Thakrar.
While it doesn’t change the design of the app or adds in some new features, the Cydia tweak makes it more usable. With this in mind, it enables haptic and audio feedback for media controls. This means that when you are controlling music remotely, either via the Control Centre or Lock Screen, you will be noticed via vibration or little sounds, about the changes are you’re making.
When it comes down to the ease of use of this Cydia tweak, it is worth pointing out that it is pretty straight forward. With this in mind, there is a switch meant to enable the app on top of it, a developer option, along with some information about the tweak, its creator and settings. You’re then offered the possibility to decide which features should have the haptic and sound feedback enabled, from Airplay, Headphones, Control Centre, Lock screen and more.
You also have the possibility to disable the feedback for certain functions. If you’re wondering about the exact feeling that can be experienced when the tweak is active, then you should know that once the volume is changed, the device will vibrate and let you know about the change via a small sound, similar to the one that Mac computers do when the volume is changed. The feedback can be experienced either when you are changing the settings via the Control Centre or the Lock Screen, but also if you are controlling the device from your headphones and you are outside the music app, with your device active, or on sleep.
Based on everything that has been outlined so far, Feedback doesn’t do too much, but it represents a neat tweak for those who would like to be notified via feedback for any changes they make while playing music, be it pausing, changing the volume, and skipping a track or anything else. In the next couple of days, we will also feature some of the best discounted apps, available on the Cydia market at this moment in time.
