    Default Unanswered: iOS click sound on every button tap

    In our application we use PhoneGap to interact with the device. We've implemented a custom plugin in PhoneGap to play the default tick sound (fastest way to play sounds possible).

    As for the Sencha part, we've overriden the onTap function of Ext.Button to send a signal to PhoneGap to play the tick sound.

    Override buttons to play the default sound

    // Adds a sound to button tap
    Ext.define('Enhancements.Button', {
        override: 'Ext.Button',
        onTap: function(e) {
            if (this.getDisabled()) {
                return false;
            this.fireAction('tap', [this, e], 'doTap');
    Objective C for playing the iOS default sound
    - (void) playAlertSound:(NSMutableArray *)arguments withDict:(NSMutableDictionary *)options {
    Feel free to use the code above in your own projects.

    Two questions:
    1. Is this the proper way to add the common.playAlertSound invoke to all buttons?
    2. In some situations we have quite a lot of logic going on after you tap on a button. This causes load to the browser and therefore delaying the tick sound. How could I solve this? Perhaps delay the actual action that is called on button tap?

    There really isn't a way you can get the audio to always sync up. The best you can do I guess is delay the button tap logic but that may seem sluggish to the user.
