Install Apple’s Stock iPhone Apps On Your Jailbroken iPad With Belfry



Some of Apple’s stock iPhone apps would work wonderfully on the iPad, such as Clock, Stocks, Weather, and Calculator. But the Cupertino company seems to have no plans to port these apps over to the larger device. After all, I’m sure if it did we’d already have them by now.

But thanks to a new utility for jailbroken iPads called Belfry, you can port them over yourself.

Developed by Ryan Petrich, the developer behind popular jailbreak tweaks like DietBar and Activator, Belfry automatically installed six of the iPhone’s stock apps on your iPad; including Clock, Calculator, Compass, Voice Memos, Stocks, and Weather.

All of them work well on the iPad, allowing you to use them in the same way you would on the iPhone. Though there is one caveat: While Clock and Stocks run in native resolution, the other apps are stuck at iPhone resolution in “2x” mode. Check out Belfry in action:


The best thing about Belfry? It’s completely free and available to download now from the BigBoss repo in Cydia.
