    Default FullForce for iPhone Stretches Non-Four-Inch Apps to Fit the Four-Inch Display


    If you were a fan of FullForce, for stretching iPhone/iPod touch apps to fit the iPad’s large display, then check out a new jailbreak tweak called FullForce for iPhone by iOS hacker and developer Ryan Petrich. With it, you can stretch iPhone 4/4S apps to fit the iPhone 5 and iPod touch 5G’s four-inch display, as shown above.

    As shown, the appearance of the stretched application looks native, so you really won’t even notice that a jailbreak tweak is working in the background to stretch your applications. The appearance of the black letterboxes in applications on the iPhone 5 is plain ugly, and FullForce for iPhone will give your iPhone 5 the treatment of good-looking apps that it deserves.

    When you’re about to open an application that doesn’t support the iPhone 5 or iPod touch 5G’s four-inch display, FullForce for iPhone will alert you and let you enable FullForce for iPhone for the application that you’re about to open by tapping on the Apply button. If you tap on the Cancel button, the application will remain in its letterboxed view and you’ll have to configure it manually with FullForce for iPhone later:



    If you want to configure the applications that will take advantage of FullForce for iPhone manually, just head over to the FullForce for iPhone preferences pane and turn on the applications you want to stretch to fit the four-inch display of the iPhone 5 or iPod touch 5G:



    FullForce for iPhone can be had for just 99 in the BigBoss repository.

    Name: FullForce for iPhone
    Price: 99
    Version: 1.0
    Requirements: iPhone 5 or iPod touch 5G
    Repo: BigBoss
    Developer: Ryan Petrich

    I recommend ScreenExtender instead. Does the same and it's free.

    Downloaded this this morning, love it. Really don't get why apple haven't put something like this already in the OS then give developers the choice to add their own optimised version

    Is this any different than Screen Extender?

    not sure.

    I found a review of both of them, that doesn't seem to indicate any difference.
    rms vs rpetrich, free vs paid, I guess.

    Screen Extender tweak and FullForce for Phone tweak force apps to show in fullscreen on iPhone 5 and iPod touch 5th gen.ThinkiOS – iPhone. iPad. iPod touch Blog


    Hmm.
    One difference:
    Screenextender is new, and is for 5g iPhone/iPod only.
    Fullforce comes in two flavors, for iPad (old) and 5g (new)

    Hmm, with screen extender - it did make the app longer, but where it had extended you couldn't actually touch! it was un responsive!

    rms doesn't seem too shabby either, though he's not the beast.
    (and not the GNU rms, for that matter)

    Edit:
    YOWZA!
    CameraConnector (also by rms) now supports mass storage devices! (as of 0.3b)
    Access USB drives from your iPhone/Touch. Only cp/ls though, no mount. :[

    I had the same problem.

    I just purchased fullforce, and tried the same app that failed with extender, and it works just fine ... totally worth it.

    Spend the money. It works PERFECTLY and is well thought out. I don't think anyone will be disappointed. (iPhone5/evasi0n)

    I also agree that you can trust everything from this developer.

    It's a shame Apple won't just come around on the jailbreak issue. The functions added from just 4 days of JB is super. Activator and SBSettings being the most useful.
