Vybe Generates Your Own Customized Vibrations
The Android operating system is renowned for its extensive customization and flexibility. Not only customizable with the archives of mods and tweaks, Android also allows flexibility through its vast number of available apps. Well now you can customize the vibrations on your phone with an application called Vybe.
Recently popped up in the XDA Forums, Vybe was introduced to us by XDA Forum Member moeedayazbutt. It allows users to define their own vibration pattern for their different contacts. Vibrations can be recorded by tapping a big circular, virtual button, played back, and of course saved. Buttons on either corner on the bottom of the screen allow users to access saved vibrations which then can be played back, with the other button bringing users to a list of contacts which custom ‘vybrations’ can be assigned to. There is also a simple, yet helpful tutorial on Vybe’s initial start up, which can be accessed again through Vybe’s settings screen.
With a potential update in the future from the developer with support for SMS, Vybe is a fun and practical app for those looking for further customization of their Android devices. Available for Android versions 2.2 and newer, Vybe is up for grabs for free in the Play store. So if you’re interested, make sure to check out the original thread.
