    Is there such an app that causes vibrations whenever keys are hit, when texting for instance.

    Your battery would run out by the time you finish typing an e-mail!

    Yes, it's called Haptic Pro, or just Haptic (depending on whether you want to pay for it or not).

    I personally think it's a little laggy and drainy, but you might not mind that for whatever reason.

    It should be in the default repos on Cydia.

    It won't. My nokia has haptic feedback (vibration when typing or clicking a link) and its battery life is awesome.

    I purchased this haptic pro 5 days ago and have been using since. I dont noticed any lagness and dont notice any battery drainage out of the norm. I charged my phone 3 hours ago and I still have 51 percent on battery life. The best part is that I can adjust the vibration.

    I have purchased haptic pro as well and its definitely a fantastic app. This was one thing I actually really liked about some of the android based phones since the haptic feedback gives a sense of actually pushing a button, now I can have it on my iPhone 4:). I feel like I can actually type a lot easier now with as funny as it may seem.

    Just got haptic pro and it's running very smoothly so far. I like the feel of typing with the vibration

    Well for those interested, my experience was laggy largely due to the fact that I am running a 3G, so yeh...

    ha, I'm not sure if you are selling this app....

    What have you been doing for 3 hours to drain the battery by half? I can use my phone pretty heavily for 14 or 15 hours and be around 50% by the end of the day.

    Still having good luck with this app, doesn't seem like it's effecting battery life much at all.

    I played around with it. It was hit/miss as to when it actually worked, so I uninstalled it. It seemed like it worked most of the time, but then it would just stop working for 5 or 10 seconds.

    I used this app back in the day on my 3G when it was available for free. Worked great back then and I liked it. I wish this was a standard option on iOS.

    Just bought it. Very cool. I wish there was a sbsettings/activator to turn it off/on.

    Thats one thing I hated when I tried an LG touchscreen or some other Verizon iphone wannabe last time.
    It would drive me nuts:)

    It's surprising how effective the feeling is. The trick is to adjust the slider to a small vibration, as a big one get's irritating - fast.

    Is haptic working on 4.1?? I havent tried yet but it feels very weird typing without vibration again.

    I'm using Haptic Pro. I was pleasantly surprised to see that it remembered my original purchase from my iPhone 3G days, as the app didn't work on the 3GS for ages, so I had completely forgot about it.
