Is it possible to create a haptic feedback extension (for iPhones / iOS) and is anyone interested in doing it?

Cheers.

Maybe I might investigate further when I have some more time, but the search below brought me to various places that someone might use to get started:

Standard Stencyl Vibrate: http://www.stencyl.com/help/view/mobile-features/

IOS

ios 10:

import AudioToolbox
AudioServicesPlaySystemSound(1519) // Actuate `Peek` feedback (weak boom)
AudioServicesPlaySystemSound(1520) // Actuate `Pop` feedback (strong boom)
AudioServicesPlaySystemSound(1521) // Actuate `Nope` feedback (series of three weak booms)


Android (Try standard Vibrate from Stencyl first )

import android.os.Vibrator;
 ...
 Vibrator v = (Vibrator) this.context.getSystemService(Context.VIBRATOR_SERVICE);
 // Vibrate for 500 milliseconds
 v.vibrate(500);
 //And/Or:
   final long[] pattern = { 0, 200, 500, 500, 200 };
   v.vibrate(pattern , 0);
Note:

Don't forget to include permission in AndroidManifest.xml file:
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.VIBRATE"/>

Hope this is of help to someone.

Thanks, with one minor caveat, I am not a coder. ;)

I did look into the Stencyl vibrate option but the sensation is quite different than the haptic feedback. Apple is keen on featuring its technologies in games and applications so I when using Stencyl, I am always trying to find ways to expound on its current feature list (I believe this may also bring more iOS devs into the mix as well).

An extension to allow for easy in game translation would also be of immense service.

Many thanks for the time to respond to my query.

Cheers!

+1 here. Haptic is serious necessity for IOS games nowadays.
