Sure you can use the “PixelDoubling” of an iPhone app to blow it up and use it on the iPad if a dedicated iPad or universal version of your favorite app is not yet out. It gives you the FUNCTIONALITY you want but it doesn’t look all the good. Okay, let’s be serious. It looks lousy.
PixelDoubling is better than nothing but it isn’t GOOD. But while we wait for apps like Documents To Go to release a new or updated version it is the best we can do. At least it was until now. If you are jailbroken you can now fix the image quality of an iPhone app running on the iPad with ease thanks to FullForce, an app available in the Cydia store for free.
Suddenly the images of an iPhone app can look… well… see for yourselves…
The text looks great and makes it easy to read and write…
This is the same document as the one at the top… only with FullForce running on my iPad. And best of all… it is simple to use.
You just load the app, re-spring, go to settings and toggle those apps you want FullForce to “fix”.
After that iPhone apps will look great. No, you won’t get the added functionality many iPad apps are able to offer thanks to the increased screen real estate but…
Suddenly the iPhone New York Times app looks great and doesn’t limit you to the anemic content available in the iPad Times Select app.
And while Pocket Informant will hopefully see an iPad version (or at least a universal version) soon (and I will be the first in line to buy it!!!) but until then you can now use the app with more clarity on the iPad.
Best of all it is free, free, FREE!
There was already a hack to make this trick possible, but it was rather complex and needed to be done for each and every app. Loading FullForce and starting to use it, on the other hand, took me three minutes.
I am not recommending Jailbreaking. If you do so you do so at your own risk. But if you do Jailbreak… This is awesome!
