Create haptic effects (vibrations) on Android with this easy to use asset. You can set your Android device to vibrate for a specified amount of time or through patterns of varying lengths. Simple demo is included. Since this asset relies on a native Android extension, the haptic effects will not work when running or debugging, you need the create an apk to test the functionality.

Important!: Please update this extension to the newest version. The vibrate functions as they were have been deprecated in SDK version 26 (Android 8.0) and cause problems on newer devices. The newest version of this extension includes a Java file that uses the updated functions that you can use if targeting SDK version 26 or higher. Please test this out and contact me if there are problems before leaving a bad review and I will look into it, thanks!

Please note: Set minimum sdk to at least 11. If you target API level 26+ (Android 8.0+) in GMS2, then copy the included file "" to [Project]/extensions/Haptics/AndroidSource/Java. Take a backup of and remove "" already in that directory and rename "" to "".
