    Hey all,
    I just bought iFitness from the App Store and I'm loving it. However, my wife wants to log her workouts on my Touch as well. The problem is that iFitness only supports one user. I am wondering if it is possible to trick the Touch into installing iFitness a second time so that I can have one installation of iFitness to record my workouts and the second installation of iFitness to record her workouts. Is this possible?

    I'm running a jailbroken 2G Touch v. 2.2.1.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.

    As far as i am aware...no.
    I don't think this is possbile, however i could be wrong.

    Actually, i just thought of something. Maybe if you SSH into your ipod touch and find the iFitness app you copy that folder but just rename everything.

    Try making an exact copy of the iFitness app folder in SSH... Should work

    i don't think so, because when you install an app, doesn't it check whether you've already got one, and so then it just replaces/updates it?

    if renaming doesn't work you could try to rename the original app and install the cracked app. Not that I encourage to use cracked apps but in your case you own the original one.

    otherwise: email the dev and put a request for multiple user support.

    or buy an ipod for your wife

    No. The cracked application will overwrite the legitimate version.
    There is no way to do this.

    Aren't there many other apps that do basically the same thing? Get one for her and one for you

    I don't think you can install the same app twice, and have two different records...i had to buy Flight Control (The plane controlling game...from the app store...) a few times, and it never showed up on my springboard, so one time it did...and now whenever i search it up on quickgold it comes up 7 times xD

    But the downside of that is that all of the 7 copies ave the same highscores...so its useless, but i can't just delete one app because maybe it'll mess something up, so i just leave it...

    So...you sat there and bought it 7 times instead of just figuring out why it wasn't going onto your touch?

    And to this day, you still have it messed up, and have yet to fix it?
