As of when you reach the bottom of a page the screen goes darker.

Would it be possible to add haptic feedback to it?

This looks like a duplicate of https://together.jolla.com/question/16340/having-a-elastic-scroll-feedback-at-bottom-of-screen/. If so, please close and comment there.

I saw that. Since elastic feedback can't be implemented due to patents -according to the link you gave- and the current solution is pretty OK all that is asked here is to add haptic feedback.

Haptic feedback sounds appropriate. Actually I'm not quite convinced the darkening is the proper response for reaching the bottom - was the bounce-effect patented or NIH or something?-)

Patented by Apple, I believe. Samsung tried challenging the patent last year in the US, and lost.

An "inverse" glow (darkness spreading out ;)) at the end would perhaps look better than darkening the whole screen.
