UPDATE: This widget is NOT compatible with Android 4.3 or higher (We tried, but the most recent versions of Android do not allow access to the controls necessary to provide this fix). We’ve notified the OEM of the issue, but currently, this Auto Haptic Widget will only work with Galaxy S III handsets with Android versions prior to 4.3.
This widget is designed to address an issue with certain Galaxy S III handsets that have updated to Jelly Bean. Users who have not upgraded to Jelly Bean do not need to install this application, as the Auto Haptic Feature can be managed through the standard device settings (Settings/Sound/Auto Haptic).
Auto Haptic allows users to automatically incorporate low-power tactile effects in downloaded applications to enhance mobile gaming. With the recent update to Jelly Bean some handsets have lost the “Settings” menu controls for the Auto Haptic feature. This widget is a universal ON/OFF control for Auto Haptic which allows users to enable or disable tactile effects for all downloadable applications. After installing this widget, please reboot your device.
This Auto Haptic widget does not impact the tactile effect settings for other device functionality, such as alerts and keyboard tactile feedback.
It is anticipated that the “Settings” menu will be restored with full functionality to enable Auto Haptic at an application level in a future OS update from carriers. At that time, this widget will no longer be needed.
The widget has been tested on both the international OS build and various carriers. At this time the Jelly Bean upgrade of T-Mobile, Sprint and Verizon versions of the Galaxy S3 are known to have this problem. This widget has been tested on those platforms. Other carrier versions may have this issue, but the widget has not been tested on those platforms.
