    Exclamation iPad user selection?

    Hi guys, picked up my iPad2 the other day, only problem being that i have to share it with my father :\ Now i want to know if there is a an app or jailbroken app that allows me to create separate user accounts on the iPad?

    E.G: When i switch it on, there will be an option to sign into mine or his account, asking for a password etc? I know it sounds abit stupid, and i highly doubt there is anything like this, but i thought i would give it a shot.


    Alternatively, is there any way that i can keep my apps protected by passwords? EG if i put all the apps i don't want him to use (My FB & Twitter) into a folder, can i put a password on that folder?

    (Again) alternatively, which Facebook or Twitter apps have "Pin-code" protection? Or ones that will remember my username but only ask for my password?

    Any app or jailbroken app (I know its not jailbroken yet, but when the jailbreak is released i plan to jailbreak) reccomendations would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    There is a tweak that will require a password for folders.

    I got my first IPAD First Generation today and have questions about IBooks. Do I have to pay for the books? I downloaded the app and notice books are $12.99. Is there somethng I am not understanding or is there a site where I can get free or low cost books?

    Sorry for dumb questions. This is sooooooo new to me.
    Thanks in advance for any info

    As long as we're talking books, there are many other book apps, including barnes & noble and kobo ( borders). And Overdrive is available to check out books from your local library if they've joined.

    There ARE free books available in iBooks, but the library is limited. Mostly classics. And there is a free download in iBooks from Macworld - iPad 2 User's Guide- which you may find very useful!
