Slices

Slices is a brand new tweak that was just released on Cydia’s BigBoss repo, and as we stated in this week’s episode of Let’s Talk Jailbreak, it’s a very big deal. A tweak that has sort of flown under the radar, Slices brings dual login ability and quick profile switching to many of the apps running on your iOS device today.

Slices is especially useful for apps like Instagram and Snapchat, which don’t allow for multiple users on the same device. But it goes beyond mere login enhancements. Slices allows for multiple settings bundles, which means that you can have what is essentially multiple instances of the same game or app.

Think of Slices as a tweak that allows you to run multiple versions of all of your favorite applications. Indeed, it’s a very big deal, as I highlight in our video walkthrough after the break.

After installing Slices, head over to the stock Settings app to configure its preferences. Inside of the preferences, you’ll find a kill-switch, and a section for establishing slices for each user application on your device.

Each application is allowed to have multiple slices, which can be created from the applications section of Slice’s preferences. Tap the Create Slice button to create a new slice and give it a name. After creating your desired slices, enable the Ask on Touch toggle for the application, and go back to the Home screen.

Slices

Launch the app, and you should see a sheet appear with your list of slices. You’ll also be given a chance to create a new slice directly from this sheet. Select your desired slice, and login to your account (if applicable). Exit the app, and select your next slice, and configure that slices to your liking (i.e. logging in with a separate account).

If you rarely need to switch slices for a particular app, you can go back in the settings and disable the Ask on Touch toggle, but it’s recommended that you keep this toggle enabled if you’ll be often switching between slices. If you turn Ask on Touch off, be sure to enable your desired default slice before exiting the preferences.

I don’t know about you, but I’m extremely excited to finally have a tweak like this at my disposal. No longer will I be limited to just one Instagram account at a time. I can now quickly switch between accounts in mere seconds, whereas in the past, I would have had to log out of my account and log in with the new account, which took lots of time.

Slices is available right now for $1.99 on Cydia’s BigBoss repo. It’s not really a question to me as to whether this tweak is worth it. It is; go get it now, and let me know what you think after taking it for a spin.

    How does this affect push notifications?

    • Notifications only arrive for the last slice you used. Makes sense, no?

      • RarestName

        Makes perfect sense!

      • soundmanbrad

        That’s pretty fancy.

  • Jose Lara

    It doesn’t work with Facebook. Anyway to fix this?

  • Rickm_jr

    Anyone test with Clash of Clans yet?

    • Infinite Production

      Clash of Clans updates from your game centre.
      Have not tried it yet, but I would imagine if you log out of game centre it would work.

      • Alex

        Can you try and tell us if clash of clans works with this tweak. Thanks

      • e40rich

        im not risking losing my ClashOfClans account in case it doesnt work for some god awful reason lol way too far to lose the progress

      • Infinite Production

        No It does not work.
        Clash of Clans will go back to your default game.

        In other words, when you create the slice, the original slice 1 will be the same game to slice 2.

        I impulse purchased to use with COC mainly. Currently dissapointed to find out that ti doesnt work COC along with most of the game im playing. Should have tested it with pirated version first = (

      • Infinite Production

        Yes, It may be a good idea to test a pirated copy first to see if all works like you would like it to.
        But the dev did a fab job and he well deserves my payment πŸ˜‰

    • Infinite Production

      How slicing works is, that the first slice you make is your default last game. The second slice you make is the alternative game or app.

    • CODENAME_CAFE

      CoC use your device Mac address beside few things to ultimately identify your OWN device; to prevent cheating and such by any form. almost every online based game use this unless they have an option to delete the data from the remote server. so no it’ll not work at CoC nor any game so far

  • Robes

    YES. been waiting for this for so long. I hated how instagram only allows one account at a time! WOO NO MORE!

    • Liam Mulcahy

      yes

  • Karlos Lema

    Not working with viber πŸ™

  • Fevostone

    I tell you wot I would like to see a tweak/app were I can stream my iphone to my chromecast like movie box or my live streaming app I use for my sport you can download allcast for android I want summit like that for ios if not I’ll just use my Apple TV LOL

    • βœͺ aidan harris βœͺ

      You mean a tweak that allows AirPlay mirroring to a Chromecast? This would be pretty cool if it were possible. I’m no developer but it sounds way too complicated to pull off…

      • Fevostone

        Maybe mate but the Chromecast software is open source to any one so you never know

      • Gman Smith

        It can be done, just not Easley.

      • Easley

        “Easley”

  • e40rich

    All i wanna know is how this affects games with GameCenter accounts attached to them….i.e. Clash of Clans. Jeff?

  • James

    one word: niiiiiiiiice.

  • Ryan B.

    The only thing I can think of right now that would make this better is if you could have a location aware slice. If you are at home, you could have a default slice load automatically, but if you are in public, it would load a different slice by default. I have certain apps on my phone that have not-public-friendly content in them, but with slices I can have another quickly accessible profile handy for such situations.

    Other than that, it is an awesome tweak so far. I’m loving it! Great job!

  • Hell yeaahhh this tweak what i’m waiting for a long time

  • Maik

    I would love to use this to run my two whatsapp accounts (two different numbers) on the same iphone. Can slice do this for me, while allowing me to receive notifications for each account as messages arrive? This would be so brilliant.
