Your iPhone is on a table while you are talking to somebody who is saying something pretty important, then all of a sudden you get that loud vibration from your iPhone and you excuse yourself just to check that message which isn’t important and then later you regret doing that. Many of us have been in a situation like this, mostly getting distracted with unimportant notifications. Well if you don’t want this to happen again, we have a Cydia tweak for you.
MyVibe is a Cydia tweak that disables vibrations when you receive calls or notifications when your iPhone is placed on a flat surface such as a table. As you can imagine, this tool can come handy in some situations.
Besides disabling the vibration feature for calls and notifications, MyVibe Cydia tweak also enables Do Not Disturb feature when your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch is placed upside down.
Evan Coleman a.k.a @edc1591, the developer behind MyVibe mentions:
MyVibe disables vibrate when your phone is placed on a flat surface, like a table.
MyVibe can also enable Do Not Disturb when your device is placed upside down on a flat surface.
MyVibe works on any iPhone, iPad or iPod touch running iOS 6 or later. Note that the table vibrate feature is iPhone only.
No icons added to the home screen. Configure options from settings.
Those of you who are wondering how MyVibe works, well I asked the developer behind this and he had to say:
@farhanleo23 Yup, it uses the accelerometer to look for 1g in the “z” direction.

You can download MyVibe from the BigBoss repo for a $1.99, which is definitely worth it. So go ahead and give it a try.
