Meteor 1.6: Running 2 iOS apps in parallel

I am developing a second app based on Meteor 1.6 and noticed a weird phenomenon: If only one of the apps is running, everything works fine. But as soon as I try to start both apps in parallel (with one running in the background), the app I started second gets stuck on the launch screen. Maybe it is because Meteor is using the very same port for its internal server?

As soon as I kill the first app, the second app would start without any problems.
