RetinaPad Tweak by Ryan Petrich

  • Jan 09, 2015

This is a useful tweak to make some apps used in iPhone to appear in the correct visionary status in iPad, since launch of many apps being used in iPhone availability and compatibility in iPad has been great news, some users complained about the appearance quality and fuzziness of the apps on the large screen of the iPad, interestingly when I detected that issue I though this really is not matching with the technology improvements we reached at this computer age and it is disgraceful to have this in some apps like Linkedin, it was horrible to use it on iPad and in fact I realized the complains were not even reflecting the affects in the right level of disturbance. Thanks to Ryan Petrich whom developed RetinaPad we have bypassed this experience and have the solution. It fully supports iOS 7.x and functions as a pure zoom to achieve best quality. It helps applications to reposition themselves on full screen layout and enables retina graphics for iPhone apps in 2x mode.

Once installed RetinaPad works greatly with all apps or games uses Retina graphics, the pixilation process will be removed when app is used in iPad by using this tweak and it maintains clean graphics on our device to enjoy using the favourite games or apps at similar quality on our Ipad. RetinaPad is priced at $2.99 in Cydia and if you experience the problem as we discussed we stongly recommend to install the tweak.

There is also a developed version announced as Full Mode RetinaPad by Ryan but it is still being developed for iOS 8 and 8.1 we will look into this in more details and find out the user experiences.
