By now, it is pretty evident that we at GizmoStorm are in love with iOS and all the other devices it powers, including iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch. Ever since Apple introduced an iPod which is also a phone, it has changed the way we used to communicate, and interact with each other and with technology. Plus the addition of jailbreak and all the customizations it offers, iDevice comes as an all in one package to cater your needs.

In case you are an iPhone user, you must have wondered about running some particular application twice on your device, just for fun or may be for some productive reason. While Apple apparently does not allow you to do so, we at GizmoStorm thrived through to get a working solution for you right here. Simply follow the tutorial below, and run same app twice on iPhone instantly.

NOTE: You will require a jailbroken iPhone in order to follow this tutorial. We are assuming that you already have one. Kindly make sure you take a complete backup of your iPhone before proceeding.

Step 5: Open the directory of the copied folder, and navigate to the application.app folder and look out for Info.plist file. Next step is to edit this info.plist file.
