A recent review on The Gadgets says that one iPad jailbreak tweak is alone worth downloading Comex’s new JailbreakMe 3.0 tool. That tweak is RetinaPad, which transforms pixelated iPhone applications into high-definition software that’s fit for viewing on an iPad.
“When you download an iPhone app on your iPad, because there isn’t an specific iPad app, it comes in a small window and very pixelated especially when you click the x2 at the bottom,” explains the review. “RetinaPad allows you to convert these apps to HD apps, like the normal iPad apps. These means that iPhone apps …
