Hi Guys.

Forcy Tweak.

Is anyone using this tweak and how are you finding it ? I read an update has happened to introduce Haptic Feedback.

Appreciate any insight.

Was using RevealMenu as I preferred long pressing rather than swiping up. Checked out Forcy again and noted you could swap it to long press. With the haptic feedback, even better. So thank you

The only problem is that haptic feedback is a little weird haha. It vibrates a few times, not one.

And it's a bit laggy. But this is A8 fault.

Nice tweak!!

I was using Forcy but now Reveal. I honestly don't see any difference between the two. Waiting to see which one gets peek (if it's possible)

Does Reveal have the long press to launch and haptic feedback ?

I'm using Forcy now and it works really well.

The only issue I'm having (which isn't a biggie) is moving Apps around on the springboard.

Long press, yes.
haptic, not working for me

Another thing to point out is if you long press an icon that has no function the screen bounces less in reveal than it does in forcy.

For the moment I'm now using 'RevealMenu. '

Forcy was having some hiccups for me.

Moving Apps around the SpringBoard was a bind.

Launching an App in a Folder was hit and miss. It would give haptic feedback but not open my folder.

Sometimes an App would not open and just bounce.

I'm having problems with both Forcy and RevealMenu now.
Forcy, try to open an app and its like I am long pressing. I have to go to the multitask screen , then back to homepage where it works normally...once. Have to keep going back and forward from multitask to home screen each time I want to open an app.

With Reveal it works normally...once. Then it's as if it isn't installed.

Very strange, was fine yesterday.

So far so good with RevealMenu.

No issues launching apps both on the home screen and in folders now.

Moving apps around is easier too.

Only thing missing is Haptic Feedback !

I've just downloaded the tweak ' Hapticle ' that adds Haptic Feedback.

Was that what you meant ?

RevealMenu + UniversalForce tweaks are a great combo for me. RevealMenu for icon 3D Touch and UniversalForce for Peek and Pop in like Photo's, email, website links.... Haptic Vib working for both tweaks. All we need now is Force Touch App Switcher for multitasking... and that should hold 6/6+ owners until the iPhone 7. :p

I've been looking at the devs twitter (@ioscreatix), and he has been active in updating his UniversalForce tweak. It really is the perfect combo with RevealMenu.

And the icing on the cake is that it's free ! Donate time.

Thank you for highlighting this tweak.

After looking at a few YouTube Videos I'm impressed.

Have you encountered any negatives with this ?

Works great when you get used to it. When I first tried it, it would pop right after peeking. I had to get used to holding the peek screen so I can get to other menus. I'm starting to get used to it... but sometimes it pops when I don't want it to.

Peek for web links isn't working.

I hold on a link in mail or messages and a pop up menu like before shows.

It took me a while to get used to. I just held down your username link in your post, and it worked for me after a few tries. What works for me is using the full surface of your thumb or index finger (not finger tips). It took me a while to figure it out yesterday, but I can get it work today... but not every time. The tweak is fairly new. The developer put a note in his version history that he will be fixing the sensitivity in a later version. Hopefully it will get better.

Anyone else getting this? I've tried disabling other tweaks that I thought might cause it (Upscale, Anchor etc....)
