'Slices' Lets You Easily Switch Between Multiple Accounts in Multiple iOS Apps
Do you ever wish that you could access more than just one user profile or account in some of your iOS applications? Many of us do; unfortunately, many applications generally only give the user the ability to sign in with one user account at a time.
A new jailbreak tweak is now available in Cydia dubbed Slices by iOS developer Stevie Hetelekides that allows you to configure multiple user accounts for your iOS application(s).
Shown above, you can see how Slices allows you to choose a user for playing the popular iOS game Doodle Jump. This will force the game to save its scores under a certain user, which is great for people that let their kids or other friends/family use their iOS device(s).
Slices adds a preferences pane to your Settings application where you can configure your Slices for each of your individual iOS applications:
From the main preferences pane, you can enable or disable the tweak on demand, as well as move to a list of applications where you can configure individual Slices. To configure a Slice, pick an application, and at the bottom of the preferences pane for that application, you will be able to create new Slices and see a list of your existing ones. You can also configure a default Slice for the application, as well as have Slices as you upon opening the application what Slice you want to use.
Slices seems to be a very good way to keep game scores and social networking accounts separate from one another, while still being able to access them on the same device. If you would like to give the tweak a try, it's available in Cydia's BigBoss repository right now for $1.99. Slices works on iOS 7 and runs on iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.
Requirements: iOS 7.0-7.0.6
Tested on: iPhone 5 running iOS 7.0.6
Developer: Stevie Hetelekides

Unfortunately, this tweak doesn't work with any FaceBook app, i.e FaceBook, Messenger, Paper, Pages....etc.
The Developer says he's working on it.
