New App Helps Holiday Shoppers Locate Hard to Find Items

Belfry Tweak Adds Native iPhone Apps to Jailbroken iPads

You've already jailbroken your iPad 2 using pod2g's exploit, but what should you do with it now? For starters you can add basic iPhone apps that Apple didn't include with their tablets for some unknown reason.

iPad 2 Jailbreak iOS 5.0.1

Hidden Facebook App For the iPad Discovered

I guess the updated Facebook app for the iPhone wasn't as pointless as everyone thought. TechCunch discovered a hidden code in version 3.4.4 of the iPhone app, a code for something that people have been waiting a long time for. The Facebook iPad app!



Is it any good? The tech blog says the app is "very good" and that the navigation system is "great." The iPad app uses overlay menus and a left-side navigation system to let you chat with your friends, or do whatever you do on Facebook, with just the poke of a button and swipe of your finger. However, just like the iPhone, game access is nonexistent on the iPad app.

The best part is that the app is executable on jailbroken devices.

The ability to run iPhone apps on the iPad is great except for one thing, in full-screen mode (2x) they appear pixelated.

This tweak will enable Retina display mode for compatible iPhone apps, clearing up the graphics on your iPad screen.

iPhone apps designed for the iPhone 4 Retina display have increased resolution for compatibility with the newer screen, but also run in a lower resolution mode on older models like the iPhone 3GS. By default the iPad and iPad 2 run all iPhone applications in lower resolution mode, leaving the 2x display blurry.
