Playing games and watching videos and other media content is all very well on the iPhone but it is so much better on the iPad with its much larger screen. With iOS 10 now public and with the last jailbreak for iOS 9 patched, anyone who has updated their iPad is stuck without a jailbreak and without the option to download paid apps and games . At least they were until HipStore was released. HipStore is a no-jailbreak method to downloading these games and apps onto your iPad and, while we wait for news on the iOS 10 Jailbreak [ext link], is the best alternative for users to get paid content .
