    It is annoying to deal with Iphone only apps on My ipad, as I usually have the screen in Landscape Mode. To Use the apps, I have to rotate to Portrait. Are their any Cydia apps that can make the apps rotate to Landscape?

    Sorry, no.

    But, check out RetinaPad. Makes iphone apps a lot clearer.

    RetinaPad has a beta feature to run them in landscape instead, but it isn't well formed. I would still invest in it as it makes the apps look beautiful and natural.

    Just tried it. Works pretty well for a Beta.

    Beta works - Awesome!

    I had to make sure always zoom was off for the one app I tried. It works with Chess with friends, rotating the screen, so I don't have to rotate my Ipad! There is one bug, as with 2x, the top and bottom borders are cut off, so the submit move, resign buttons and move arrows on the bottom are unavailable, and the seek game and chat buttons on the top are not available. The usual ipad finger motions to shrink the screen does not work.

    Retina developers - If you read this forum, can u add this feature in a patch. Also, it would be awesome if it could rotate native Ipad apps that don't rotate, like Zynga's Words with Friends. The settings only list iphone apps. Anyway, for $2.99, it is awesome enough!

    Yeah, it has some bugs, but it works pretty well.

    As for rotating iPad apps, the app developer has to add that, because he would have to redesign the app UI, so it would fit in landscape.
