    Default Install the same app twice on the same iPhone?
    Hey guys. Awesome site and great information - thanks a lot!

    I searched and looked around specifically for the answer to the following question and couldn't find it, so I am posting it here.

    I have an iPhone 3G, 2.1 jailbroke. I can ssh into it and all that.

    I want to install the same app (Yammer) on the phone twice. Is it possible? How to? I need one for each work... Sounds odd, but can I install the same app twice?

    Can I just copy the installed folder? What else needs to be modded? I assume there are some app settings stored somewhere else I also need to adjust.

    Thanks for any insight!

    Looks like someone wanted to spam his blog some.

    Why 2 of the same apps?

    it should also work to make a copy of the ipa, edit the bundleIdentifier and the display name in the Info.plist and then syncing it with iTunes Haven't tried it though

    I have not heard of such thing earlier. Same app twice in same phone? Why? Does that allow any extra facilities? I am curious.

    Default Thanks!
    Thanks for the reply and blog post. That was perfect. Write it up and record it. What more could I ask for?

    Also love TWIT as long as Patrick isn't on breathing into the mic constantly. Thanks for that.
