Taps are exactly what they sound like: Using Digital Touch, you can simply tap the screen in any fashion you'd like and whoever you send it to will feel the exact same sequence on their wrist. It's a fun way to nudge a friend or even just let a loved one know you're thinking about them — no words necessary.
