Congratulations! You’ve now learnt how to Install XBMC for iOS on your iPad, iPhone, or iPad Touch. It would probably be a good idea to add the Fusion Installer to your XBMC configuration now. We should also advise you not to use XBMC using 3G Data on your iPad or iPhone, but connect to a Wi-Fi connection instead, due to the limited data transfer restraints offered on 3G mobile internet.
