Hook+ leverages Apple’s Accessibility API which assigns switch presses Assistive Switch Events to communicate when scanning. In order to use Hook+ it’s essential that you activate Switch Control. Assistive Switch Events can only occur when using a device with the Switch Control feature.
Being compatible with Apple’s Accessibility API offers several benefits for the Hook+, such as:
- Automatic device configuration when connecting with Apple device using Switch Control
- Consistency of switch access throughout any compatible apps
- Framework maintained by Apple, which means more frequent updates to benefit end-users
