MultiTunes Syncs Your iPhone to Multiple iTunes Music Libraries in a easy way.

We all know that trying to sync an iPhone/iPod/iPad across multiple computers has never been an easy task, specially for beginners.

Luckily, for use MultiTunes App has just been released and it is a powerful tool for Jailbroken iDevices that allows you to set up separate profiles to sync your iDevice data (music, apps, games, contacts and more) between all the computers you want.

According to Addictivetips.com:

Using iTunes can prove to be a nightmare for even the most experienced of users, and many people end up losing all the data on their iOS device, just because they plugged in their iPhone in to a friendís computer. In addition to that, there are situations when you might need to sync some data from a computer other than the one having your default iTunes library. MultiTunes is an easy-to-use Cydia tweak, which presents a simple solution to the problem just discussed. The best thing about the tweak is that you donít have to go through a complicated set up before you can sync your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch with more than one iTunes libraries at a time.

Although there are alternatives available for the functionality offered by MultiTunes, it has the added advantage of being free, and it is really easy to use. The tweak is available over at the BigBoss repo in the Cydia store, and once installed you will see it as a new app icon on your deviceís Springboard. Upon launching, there arenít too many options within the interface of MultiTunes. You will just see your Default Library, by the same name, and more libraries can be added by tapping the Ď+í button in the top right. You can give any name to the Additional Libraries. When you have to sync with an iTunes library different from the default one, launch the app, and select the name you would like to give to the target computer. Once you have done that, let the device sync, and data from other libraries wonít be disturbed at all.

MultiTunes is an extremely useful tweak if you have iTunes installed on both your work and home computers, and it wonít cost you anything, so do give it a try to see if you find it useful.

Now you have no limits with your iDevice syncing.
