  • How To: Run iPad Apps on an iPhone


    You can put this in the "why would you want to do that, oh well it's cool to say I can" bucket. ModMyi.com user ismoothproject has built an Apple Script app which will take iPad-only apps you've purchased (still requires a purchase - this isn't warez, folks) and allow them to be launched on an iPhone, as well as transfer them to your iPhone wirelessly. It requires a jailbroken iPhone, as it sends the .app file via SFTP (requires OpenSSH be installed on your device). Not all apps work, as they're not really meant to be on that device obviously, but like I said - this is more just "oh, weird, why not?"

    This isn't entirely new - in May of last year we posted info on how to port the (then iPad only) Netflix.app to your iPhone. This user's method is essentially the same, and can be done manually as well. All he does is change the app's permissions to 755, as well as the binary. Then toss the .app in your iPhone's /Applications folder, and respring. Voila, iPad app on your iPhone, working kinda sorta.

    If you have a need to do this, and do not want to do the manual method, you can use ismoothproject's instructions:

    1. Download iTelePad2Pod Here.

    2. Unzip iTelePad2Pod.zip

    3. Move the iTelePad2Pod folder to the /Applications Folder on your Mac.

    4. Go to the moved iTelePad2Pod folder (/Applications/iTelePad2Pod) and open the iTelePad2Pod application.(/Applications/iTelePad2Pod/iTelePad2Pod.app)

    5. Follow instructions in the app.

    He's also got a YouTube video:

      HOW DO I UNINSTALL?! help please!
      Lol it was pretty awesome but garage band and pages are basically unusable like this and theyre taking up a gig of valuable space on my iphone. I cant find the apps in /Applications/ and it doesnt show up with applinks and theres no way I would know the random numbers and letters associated with each in /var/mobile/Applications.

      Cant uninstall via cydia either.... because theyre .app files

      edit: did I forget to mention theres no x's in the corner when I put it in edit mode lol

      In case you guys were wondering:
      GarageBand



      Pages




      Oh and garageband crashes whenever I try to use it even though its basically unusable to start with. Personally Id rather have it scaled down further with black bars on the top and bottom or sides than have it zoomed in and messed up if possible.

      Now how do I UNINSTALL these??

      Hmm all we need now is iImagePad2Pod makes the ipad images a certain percentage smaller to fit on iphone retina and non retina. Oh wait there is a program that works like that idk if its gonna work for ipad images cuz it was made to resize retina iphone 4 images to non retina give it a try and post back your results. The downsider its only for win and iTelePad2Pod is only for mac any one with parallels knock your self out. Oh one last thing it renames all @2 images to regular so you might need to do a bit modding to get it as i said it would be much easier to release a resizer specificly for this app.

      App - ImageResize.exe

      Goto the RAW ROOT of the devices filesystem then goto applications. Then you should see the application. Simply goto that and then delete the Directory and contents.

      Could be fun as some ipad apps are not on the iphone. , bbc iplayer is very buggy for iphone owners there is another way and it has the same content as the app , plus it works go to http://www.bbc.co.uk/mobile/iplayer/ and enjoy , dont forget outside the uk you need a uk vpn , also good for english tv live is www.filmon.com for ch4 ect , but for some reason on the iphone not all are in sync , the ipad works perfectly

      Hello Everyone!

      This has seemed to be something that everybody enjoyed a lot!

      If you have any more questions or problems about this product, please private message me.

      Also

      This will never be on windows! I don't have one and I use Automator for Mac and you can't port it because it uses Mac Operating System to run specific functions!

      If someone would be willing to recreate this in windows visual basic or c# please private message me. It isn't that hard.

      I'm pretty sure photobooth needs the A5 to render all 8 effects at once when you're in the menu.
