Mod App Delivers Ability to Change DPI and Fix Market Compatibility for HP Touchpad

For those who are unfamiliar with DPI, it is short for “dots per inch” and is a measure of the resolution of the display on any given Android device. Modifying it can bring you higher, or lower, resolution to make your screen look better.
Enter LCD Density Modder. It’s an app that allows users to choose their own DPI, regardless of the number. This gives Touchpad owners the ability to make their resolution literally whatever they want it to be. Another feature of the app is that it modifies the market.apk to make it look like you’re using 120dpi no matter what. This effectively fixes Android Market in-discrepancies that are caused when modifying the DPI.
Unfortunately, you need the pro version of the app to reap all the benefits, but there is a free version for users to check out in the Android Market if they’re not ready to take the dive and buy the full version.
For anyone toting the Touchpad who wants to give it a go, you can find the link to the app as well as the instructions on how to use it in the original thread.
