    I want to know if it is possible to get two copies of the same exact app. The app I am referring to is facebook. I want to be able to use 2 accounts without having to log in and out. Kind of like how you can do the same thing on a computer by using 2 different browsers.

    Um yes you can (trying to remember how...) if I'm correct you just copy the app and go into the info.plist and change the bundleidentifier to something other than the original. Wyndwarrior knows how, will look it up and update post.

    You duplicate the .app, and then you edit the info.plist in the duplicated .app folder.

    Look for something like:

    Code:
    <key>CFBundleIdentifier<key>
    <string>com.apple.safari<string>
    
    You want to change the "com.apple.safari" string to something like "com.apple.safari2".

    Try getting the app with one iTunes account, then sign out of that account and sign in with another one, then get it again. That's my guess

    You could use the safari mobile version and then the app version, but otherwise i don't know.. Are there multiple facebook apps in the app store?
