We are living in an age of video conferencing, be it for personal use or business. For years, Skype has been one of the leaders in providing multiple user video conferencing services, along with its well known instant messaging and file sharing integration in the same application. While we at GizmoStorm use Skype for almost all our business interactions, like many other readers, we wish there was a provision to run multiple Skype accounts on iPhone (for example, a “work” account and a “personal” account). Some days back we showed How to Install Multiple Instances Of Same App On Android but today, we are here with a workaround to Run Two Skype Accounts On iPhone. Follow the step-by-step guide provided below :
Pre-requisites To Run Two Skype Accounts On iPhone :
- Jailbroken iPhone
- Social Duplicator for iOS 7+ Jailbreak Tweak on your iPhone.
Make sure your iPhone is running on iOs 7 or above, else Social duplicator will not work. While following the procedure, in case you messed up with your Skype Account, GizmoStorm will not be held responsible in any circumstances. Though it’s a 100% working and secure way to clone Skype app on iPhone.
Steps To Run Multiple Skype Accounts On iPhone :
Step 1 : Launch Cydia application and head over to Kalora repository on iPhone. Tap the Manage button at the bottom of the screen and navigate to the Sources.
Step 2 : Now head over to Edit option followed by Add button available on the same screen. Add the mentioned repository when asked : http://cydia.myrepospace.com/kalora/
Step 3 : Press Add Source. As soon as you add the resources, navigate to the Search button and look for Social Duplicator. Select Social Duplicator and installation process will begin.
You are done with the installation process, now tap on Return To Cydia button.
Step 4 : Now, it’s time to configure Social Duplicator. Head over to Settings and navigate to Social Duplicator. Select an application for which you need 2 accounts (In our case it’s Skype). For the sake of Simplicity name it Skype2.
Until now, you might have understood that this tweak can clone any app you wish. So make you of it in best possible way.
Step 5 : Press Save. Once done, Skype will clone itself on your device springboard with the name Skype 2. You are now all set to enjoy your new Skype account.
