For iPhone, we have plenty of Cydia apps and tweaks we can use and install. In the iPad case, we have limited options since not many of these apps are suitable for a larger display. However, when finding great and useful apps, we can enhance core iOS features and make them a lot better.
Browsing Cydia Store for finding jailbreak tweaks and apps can be a hard task. Since there are thousands of apps available and new ones are added each day, it is hard to decide which one is the best for you. Here, I want to show you my personal 5 must-have Cydia apps for iPad and iPad mini.
This free Cydia app is great for gathering all important settings right in theNotificationCenter. As in the case of iPhone, it can become pretty annoying to visit the Settings menu each time you want to disable Wi-Fi, or something else. Now, with NCSettings, you can have quick toggles to Wi-Fi, cellular data, airplane mode, brightness and more right in theNotificationCenter.
As I mentioned earlier, there are plenty of iPhone apps available within the Cydia download store. In this case, if you want to take your favorite iPhone app on your iPad, then RetinaPad is exactly what you need. The tweak expands them to 2x to fill the screen. In this way, you will remove the pixel aspect of each iPhone app.
As the name suggests,MountainCenteris a Cydia app that makes use of the OS X Mountain lion and transports it on your iPad. If you enjoy using the OS interface on Mac and you want to use it on your iPad as well, thenMountainCenteris exactly what you need. Unfortunately, the app costs $2.99.
Even if SwipeSelection works pretty well on iPhone, on iPad the tweak is more than welcomed. It provides you all the tools you need to editing, copying or correcting errors. With SwipeSelection, you can make text editing much easier for you. In the same time, with this amazing free tweak, you can hold down shift and drag your finger over the text you want to highlight. In this way, when you are reading a text, you can easily find the important parts if you highlight them.
The last iPad Mini/iPad app I want to mention is Emblem. While the notification banners might seem unfinished, with Emblem, you will get your banner notification on the iPad on a full screen. Instead of seeing the stock banners, the Emblem turn notification alerts on the iPad into OS X, and it combines them into stacks so you can scroll through much easier.
