MyVibe - Disable Vibrate When Placed On Flat Surfaces
BZZZZ BZZZZ! Was that an earthquake? No no, it was just my iPhone vibrating on the wooden table, which seemed to have amplified itself throughout the house! It's no surprise that the vibrate feature drives many users crazy when they have their iDevices placed on a flat surface such as a table.
Introducing, MyVibe v1.0-1. Developed by Evan Coleman, MyVibe disables the vibrate feature when your phone is placed on a flat surface such as a table. Beautiful tweaks like this make me wonder why Apple doesn't just incorporate these features from the get go.
MyVibe will also enable the Do Not Disturb feature if you flip your phone upside down and place it on a flat surface. The most beautiful part is that the app works on every iPhone, iPod and iPad.

Nice But how does it know when you put it down?

It's not just me that think the vibrate in the 5 is massively louder than the vibrate in a 4?

Could they make it not vibe when on a call. Having the phone vibrate against the side of the head is really annoying.

I wonder why this is available on iPods and iPads since I'm pretty sure they don't vibrate.Let's go Red Wings!

lol you guys are complicating how it works. it just uses the proximity sensor constantly to notice if its lying down or not. Always on proximity uses the same techniques to turn the screen on and off. This will make a difference on battery life but so far for me its not noticeable

Personally, I'd guess that the tweak uses a combination of accelerometer (to determine orientation and speed--it may be programmed to only kick on if relatively still) and gyroscope if available.
OT: Frankly, I don't see this as being terribly useful... I think the older "flip to silence/ignore notifications" is about as good as an idea as this feature will bear.

This is stupid. It might seem like a novelty now but this will quickly become a problem. Since this disables notifications no matter what way you put your phone on the table, you are going to miss things like important calls and texts.
I don't see why people have such a problem with their phone vibrating. God forbid whoever you are sitting with is subjected to a brief moment of vibration. It's better than whatever annoying ringtone you probably have.

Does work with text messages👍, but _not_with incoming phone messages. 👎
Which is bit of a bummer, considering the fact that it's a payed app and there was nothing to indicate this shortcoming.
Could this be repaired in the next upgrade, please?
