Crane is a container management solution that allows you to create multiple containers per application. Crane Lite is a test version of Crane that has less features and can only be used with one application at a time. For the full experience, purchase Crane. Features include:

Account Switching

Many applications don’t support multiple accounts. Crane provides remedy by adding the ability to switch between multiple containers (instances of the application data). Most, if not all, applications are supported. If you happen to find an application that does not work with Crane, please get in contact. Crane Lite can be used to make sure your applications are supported before buying the full version.

Your Data Stays in Place

Unlike similar tweaks and applications, Crane redirects the data accessed by an application to a different path. No data is moved around when switching between containers.

Default Container

Crane allows you to set any container as the default container, which will be used when the device is not jailbroken or when Crane is not loaded.

Keychain Aware

Many applications store sensitive data in the keychain. Crane gives every container their own keychain access groups, meaning that the data they save is separated from the other containers, but still secured.

SpringBoard Integration

Crane provides an option to quickly switch between containers by utilizing the haptic touch menu. Depending on user configuration, the containers are either added to their own submenu or directly to the main haptic touch menu to switch with only a single tap.
