Have an iPad or iPhone that's used by multiple people in your home? Ever experienced rage when your high score in Flappy Bird gets overwritten by your 6 year old kid? How about that time your wife posted photos of her girl's night out on your Instagram account on accident? If you are rocking a jailbreak on your iPhone or iPad running iOS 7 you can put an end to the madness with Slices!
Slices is a newer jailbreak tweak that brings account management to your jailbroken iPhone or iPad. Store multiple accounts on one device and toggle between them without having to sign out. When you create a new slice in an app like Instagram or Snapchat, you'll be asked to log in again. Slices will then remember that login for that particular Slice. In the setting panel of Slices you can set the option for Ask on Touch which means every time you launch an app that Slices supports, you'll be asked which account you'd like to load.
The great part about Slices is that it works with just about any app or game. From social networks to Candy Crush, easily create Slices and load them on launch. Slices is ideal for shared devices as well as folks who have multiple accounts. When I ran a business I would have killed for a tweak like Slices so I could switch between personal accounts and business accounts on social media. It would have eliminated the headaches of signing out and back in as well as accidental posts to the wrong account.
If you're jailbroken on iOS 7, I highly suggest giving Slices a look. It's probably one of the most useful jailbreak tweaks I've seen in a long time. The only request I'd have is the ability to pin code protect slices. This way each person can have their own level of security if they choose to. If you happen to give Slices a go, let me know what you think in the comments!
