We are in an age and time where it is not uncommon to see individuals having multiple phone numbers and multiple social media accounts. Thanks to the availability of funds smartphones that allows people use as many as 3 – 4 SIM cards simultaneously. What is, however, uncommon is the availability of apps that support having numerous accounts.
Say you have two SIM cards on your Android smartphone and one of them is your personal number while the other is solely for business-related activities. Having two different (WhatsApp) accounts for each of these number is naturally impossible. Although some applications like Instagram and Telegram support the use of multiple accounts on a single app, majority of other apps don’t.

Dubbed “Multi-Account apps”, they are third-party apps that allows you clone apps installed on your smartphone so that you can run multiple accounts of the app on the same device. If you operate two active Twitter accounts and you need to have both accounts run on your device, you can clone the app so you’ll have a primary “Twitter 1” app as your main account and a secondary Twitter app that you can also use normally like the regular app.
