Cydia iPad Tweaks
Here’s a list we’ve compiled to help you get the most out of your jailbroken iPad. The majority of the iPad apps and tweaks on this list have been updated to support iOS 5 but I recommend that you click on “More Information” if you are interested in installing the tweak.

The “More Information” links go directly to the developers page to ensure you will have current information about the price (if it’s a paid tweak), iOS firmware supported, screenshots and more.

When you are ready to install some tweaks/apps, just open Cydia and search for the name of the package.
