Make Your iPhone/iPod Touch Look Like an iPad

February 2nd, 2010

Apple / Mac, Mobile Gadgets


You like the way the iPad looks right? I mean, who doesn’t. Now, imagine you can make your iPhone/iPod look like┬áthat. Yeah, it’s possible. Only bad thing is it requires a jailbreak (I recommend Blackra1n).

Basically, all you need to do is download the following from Cydia:

  • Winterboard
  • Simple iPad Theme
  • MakeItMine
  • Shrink
  • ProSwitcher

And then these from the App Store:

  • NYTimes
  • Classics
  • Kindle for iPhone

The video embedded below will walk you through it. I’ve done this to my iPod Touch and I’m really happy with it.

      Don’t worry, I immediately recognized your name and understood it was a joke. The troll much comment was for other people who didn’t understand you were joking.

    It does make it look almost exactly like the iPad; I just can’t justify the hassle of buying it though.

    Aesthetically, it makes all the difference. Functionally, it does absolutely nothing. But if you really want to pull off that iPad look, drop the $1 as it probably is the most convincing part of the entire mod (if you can call it that).

    I didn’t even bother with Shrink.

    Just did this on my iPod Touch and it looks fantastic! Super simple yet elegant theme.

    Total cost: $1 (For the Shrink app)
    Total Value: $500 (Lowest priced iPad)
    Is it worth it?: *HELL* Yeah
