    Hi all,

    Can anyone out there advise if there is a way I can transfer my app data to a different user ID/account?

    I do not wish to transfer the actual app purchase, only the associated data such as game progress, settings, history, etc.

    I would like to run a new iOS device under a different user ID (work) but continue to use some of the apps I currently have installed on my existing devices. I understand that I will need to purchase the necessary apps again, which I am prepared to do, but I'd really like to have the app appear on my new device as it was on my old one.

    Many thanks in advance!

    Try iExplorer, but you will need to know what files to go after.

    iExplorer is what I use.

    Here's some example of what file you'd copy to another device:

    Angry Birds
    /com.clickgamer.AngryBirds/Documents/highscores.lua

    Infinity Blade
    /com.chairentertainment.birthright/Documents/SwordSave.bin

    Where's My Water?
    /com.disney.SwampyGame/Library/water.db

    It is possible to copy many (if not most) individual app settings and saved games to other devices, without having to restore from a backup.
