    Hey guys I have a specific question regarding android work on phones.

    Can the phone "vibrate" function be accessed?
    Specifically can it be accessed and controlled?

    For instance, I want an app to barely "ting" the vibrate function on certain events. Not a full second of vibrate, but less.. significantly less.

    So lets say a regular vibrate function calls a phone to vibrate for 1 second.
    Can a function be called to use vibrate for less than that second, like half of that, or half of that half.. and so on.

    does this make sense?

    Thank you for taking the time to read this, I dont need to know how, I just want to know if it is a possibility..

    I welcome thoughts and comments.

    -Chris

    Yes, it can.

    EDIT: You can set the length of the vibrate in milliseconds too.

    Thank you for this info, I have not yet begun to develop for android, I am more or less putting together a game plan for moving forward.

    I appreciate you looking this up for me!

    You need to remember to set the permissions for vibrating, or else you'll get force close errors.
