The iPad (or even the iPhone) is a great device to enjoy apps and video while you’re on the road, or in bed. In fact, you can enjoy your media wherever you are. However, sitting a small distance from your big television set, some of this media might be wasted on the small screen of your iOS device. Instead, you could switch to your computer, or a media center hooked up to your TV. But if you want to enjoy the content from your iPhone or iPad, there’s a third option.
We jailbreak our iPhones and iPads. We tweak our system to enable infinite icons on the dock, and add better messaging capabilities. We could go on—great Cydia tweaks are legion—but there’s one specific tweak I’d like to highlight here today. iFile, which allows you to access and play with the iOS file system, is the main reason I’ve taken to jailbreaking my iPad.
One of the most underrated features of iOS is the dock. It’s such a simple thing; a place to keep the apps that you use all the time. While it might be simple, it’s such a well-designed little thing that makes using an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch so much more enjoyable. Of course, the dock could be better.
