Force Your iPhone Apps into iPad Mode Using FullForce, Full View no more X2 on iPad
Currently there is a small problem running iPhone Applications on iPad due to the dimensions of the iPhone GUI applications being a lot smaller than the screen on your iPad.
I’m sure you have tried using iPhone apps on iPad and found out quick enough that the GUI of the app is smaller than the screen and it looks somewhat ridiculous on your new iPad.
There is a very small but very effective utility/tweek in Cydia called FullForce which will let you run all/any your iPhone applications in fullscreen iPad compatibility mode.
There are couple of ways to get your iPhone apps to run in iPad compatibility mode using SSH and Addjusting some of your system files/code in your device and there is an easy way which we will show you here. Ryan Petrich has released a tweak in Cydia to make the process much easier.
Once you install FullForce, simply open your Settings.app, select FullForce from the Extensions list, and use the switches to set compatibility mode for whichever apps you choose.
You can download FullForce from the Big Boss Cydia repository or in plain English; Once you open Cydia on your Jailbroken iPad, search for “FullForce” and then install it.
For the sake of this tutorial I will be using iFile App from Cydia as an example to show you exactly what I mean by the “iPad Compatibility mode”.
Open Cydia and Search for “FullForce”, once found, Install it on your iPad.
Once you install it you will not see an icon on your Screen/Springboard… You will have to go to SETTINGS App in order to see it.
Before we go into SETTINGS and start settings toggles I would like to show you what iFile looks like on iPad screen without the FullForce or the iPad compatibility mode (See screenshot below). The iPhone version of iFile or any other type of App or a Game just looks abnormal because it is small and it’s placed in the middle of the screen…
OK… Now that I have showed you what the iPhone app looks like on the iPad I would like you to go to SETTINGS and click on “FullForce” under the EXTENSIONS section.
Once you select the FullForce you will see all your installed iPhone App which you can run in iPad Compatibility Mode. In my case and example above I have the “iFile” selected, but you can select any App you wish to run in full iPad Compatibility Mode (Select them ALL if you wish).
Once you select all the TOGGLES to “ON” positions on all desired iPhone apps, hit the HOME button. Now run any iPhone App and you will see the App or a Game running if full iPad Compatibility Mode / Full Screen.
Look at the iFile App / GUI after being selected in the FullForce extension… Looks much better doesn’t it? Good Luck and Enjoy your iPad and iPhone apps in Full iPad Compatibility Mode.
