Belfry Ports Native iPhone Apps To iPad (Jailbreak Tweak)

Just a moment ago, Cydia was updated with a revolutionary tweak. That tweak was called Belfry, made by Ryan Petrich. Belfry is a Cydia tweak that ports most of the native iPhone apps that Apple left out to the iPads. Haven’t you always wanted to check the weather on your iPad without having to search the web? Check it out!

With Belfry, you can now access the Calculator, Stocks, Weather, Clock, Compass, and Voice Memos apps right on your iPad! Unfortunately, these apps don’t come stock on the iPad firmwares and nobody really knows why Apple decided to leave these necessary apps out. But give a huge thanks to Ryan Petrich to making this possible.

Belfry is a free tweak found in Cydia and all you have to do is download it and give your device a reboot and you will have these apps on your personal iPad. One thing we recommend you also pick up in the Cydia store is RetinaPad also made by Ryan Petrich. RetinaPad will set you back about $3.00 but to have both of these awesome tweaks is well worth the price. What does RetinaPad do? Well it makes non-native iPad apps look more crisp and sharp when in fullscreen mode. And I can tell you this, RetinaPad comes in handy a lot!

Since Belfry and RetinaPad are iPad Cydia tweaks, you’ll need to do an untethered jailbreak for your device. You can use GreenPois0n Absinthe to jailbreak iPad 2 running iOS 5.0.1. Also, here’s a video showing off Belfry and RetinaPad.
