Install the Google Plus iPhone App on Your iPad or iPod touch [Jailbreak Free]

The Google+ iPhone app has been a hot commodity since its launch this week, but what about the iPad and iPod touch? Currently the Google Plus app only works on the iPhone 3G, 3GS, and iPhone 4 running iOS 4.0 or later, but a Redmond Pie reader found an easy workaround to install the popular app on other Apple devices.

To learn how to install the jailbreak free Google Plus iPhone app on your iPad, check out the iDownload Blog team's "How To" YouTube video, and our step-by-step instructions below.

Remember, the Google Plus app was created for the iPhone, so it's not a great fit for the iPad display resolution. You can try zooming in, or if your iPad is jailbroken using RetinaPad like the person in the video, to try and make it look better.

RetinaPad Boosts Resolution for 2x iPhone Apps on iPad

The ability to run iPhone apps on the iPad is great except for one thing, in full-screen mode (2x) they appear pixelated. If your iPad is jailbroken and you're tired of seeing blocky text RetinaPad is the answer. This tweak will enable Retina display mode for compatible iPhone apps, clearing up the graphics on your iPad screen.

RetinaPad 2x iPhone app tweak

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.
