So you’ve Jailbroken your iOS 5.0.1 iPad Untethered, and looking for some great tweaks to get started with.
Here’s our comprehensive list of Apps, Tweaks for iOS 5, iOS 5.0.1 on iPad 2.
Normally iPhone apps run at double scale on iPad and they look ugly. RetinaPad enables Retina display functionality on iPad. Instead of running apps at a normal iPhone screen size, or at two times the resolution, RetinaPad alleviates that problem by rendering applications in a different fashion giving it a sharp look as if it was designed for iPad. RetinaPad is available on the BigBoss repo for $2.99.
An app very similar to RetinaPad but with a different approach. Instead of scaling iPhone applications and rendering them to be sharper and clearer on the iPad screen, FullForce brutally forces the applications full screen. For some applications it works perfectly, but for others you get a distorted application experience. You can try both of these mods and use the one that you like better.
