Q: What information do you transmit sideways when you connect to anisette’s server? a: We use our server for anisette data only. this data is only transmitted if the “remote anisette” option is used in the advanced options of sideloadly. When you use anisette remote, here is the exhaustive list of information that our server can see: – your ip address – your operating system (win32, win64 or macos) – sideloaded version.
that’s it. We do not share this information with anyone and it is stored for a limited time for debugging purposes only. your apple id & the password is only sent to apple servers.

Apps signed with a paid apple developer account can last up to 1 year.

Q: How can I save or load my game progress? A: You need to make sure your game progress is synced on game center, facebook, twitter or google+. if the game saves your progress locally, you will need to install the ipa overwriting the one you already have installed. to overwrite the modified ipa must have the same package id and must use the same apple id when doing the local upload. see below for more information.
Q: Can I overwrite my current app without deleting it? A: Yes, it can. To achieve this, you need to load the ipa with the same apple id as your previously loaded app. if you previously manually set a custom bundle id, you must use the same id again.
Q: How many apps can I download? a: iOS 7, 8, 9: You can download as many apps as you want on your device. However, your free developer account has limitations, but you can easily bypass them by creating a new apple id. On iOS 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16 and above, you can only have 3 sideloading apps installed on your device at the same time. apple has limited this and will no longer allow free apple developer accounts. A paid apple developer account has no such limitations.
Q: Why can’t I restore Game Center game progress after trial installation? A: With the latest versions of iOS, Apple has prevented users with free accounts from from apple load apps that have the same package id as an app from the app store. To download the latest ios versions we are forced to set a unique package id and by doing so game center does not recognize the app therefore it will not ask you to restore your save.
