We’ve been on the lookout for the best cydia tweaks for iPad 2 but as we search, the list seems to grow endless. Quite a lot of people have suggested various – highly useful – jailbreak apps and cydia tweaks that add greater functionality, cooler looks and much more enhancements for the iPad 2.
Of course, now that the untethered jailbreak for iPad 2 is finally out, the sky is the limit. The Cydia repo is exploding with apps – waiting for you to try them out. Here are our top picks for the best jailbreak apps for iPad 2. Take a look:
SBSettings is one definite app which you will find on every ‘best iPad 2 cydia tweaks’ list. It lets you control the WiFi, Bluetooth, brightness, 3G and other settings – quickly. Whether it’s the iPad or the iPhone, quite a lot of people actually jailbreak their device just to get this app up and running on their iDevice. Numero Uno for sure!
2. ProTube HD
The ProTube HD is easily one of the best apps we’ve seen. It sure warrants a place on the top iPad 2 jailbreak tweaks because of its utility.
ProTube HD gives you all the usual features of the YouTube app for iPhone and also brings in a lot of other features – like downloading YouTube videos to be watched later, offline. Or downloading YouTube videos as mp3 files so you can listen to them later. Quite a power-packed and useful jailbreak app.
The old boring weather icon without real-time update. Enter WeatherIcon app.
How about having a real-time updated weather icon which correctly changes the icons according to the present weather of your place? That’s precisely what WeatherIcon does. It’s a cool little app which will let you change the default Weather app into something more “lively” and interesting.
4. Sprintomize 2
WinterBoard has a serious defect when compared to Sprintomize 2. Springtomize 2 lets you customize almost all aspects of your iPad 2′s springboard easily and without complicated actions. It brings with it a lot of customization options for statusbar, folders, app labels, docks etc. and is something like a pack of all Cydia Tweaks rolled into one. Saves money, brings lots of goodies.
Oh that cool app which runs only on iPhone and is not configured for iPad? FullForce will get you that app – running beautifully on the full-screen of the iPad! That’s a very useful app you might appreciate if you are someone who downloads a lot of apps only to find many of them are designed for iPhone.
If you’ve ever felt the need to change the location of the app icons on your springboard the way you want them to be, GridLock holds the key. This was developed by two famed jailbreakers – Chpwn and p0sixninja – so you can expect it to be one of the best apps ever. The whole idea of the app is to let you drag and move the SpringBoard icons the way you do on the desktop.
The Mail app on the iPad 2 is cool but sometimes, it just doesn’t snap to the landscape mode. The Mail app looks best and works best on the landscape mode – so SplitMail comes here for the rescue.
This app will force the mail app to open in the landscape mode so you have a large screen space to work on. A very useful app if you are someone who sends or reads email a lot on the iPad 2.
8. FullScreen for iPad
Full-screen Safari browsing is a great benefit. With FullScreen for iPad, you can not only make that possible, but it also brings multi-touch capabilities to the Safari browser, enabling finger swipes, three-finger tab, shake etc.
The FullScreen for iPad is good because Safari browsing can become a bit hard if you did not have multi-touch enabled for easy and fast browsing experience. Power-users of Safari will surely benefit from this app.
Ah! The best app ever. WinterBoard, some people say, is loosing its sheen but we don’t agree. It still is the best app to configure the look of your iPad 2 and it brings you most of the customization options you would want. With hundreds of themes, thousands of icons and more, WinterBoard reins supreme as the best customization app for iPad, iPhone etc.
A cool little app which gives the Barrel roll effect for your SpringBoard. It’s readily available on Android phones so if you want to show-off your iPad’s barrel capabilities to your Android buddies, here we go. Barrel app adds that cool effect as you swipe across the pages on the SpringBoard.
