iPad Cydia Tweak: Belfry


If you are like me, you have often wondered why Apple left a few of their stock iPhone apps off of the stock iPad. Nonetheless, Ryan Petrich has developed a FREE cydia tweak called Belfry which will get the 6 stock iPhone apps installed on your iPad, such as the Compass, Stocks, and Voice Memos. There are, of course, other ways around this but Belfry is by far the simplest way to get these apps running on your iPad



The Belfry Cydia tweak will put the following applications onto your jailbroken iPad.
  • Clock.app
  • Calculator.app
  • Compass.app
  • Voice Memos.app
  • Stocks.app
  • Weather.app
It is important to note that you will also want to install the RetinaPad Cydia tweak which increases the resolution of iPhone apps (i.e. Calculator.app). As Ryan notes, Apps will have graphical oddities and some broken appearance until this can be improved upon.

Again, Belfry is available for FREE from the BigBoss repo on Cydia.
