First time here so sorry to get started with another syncing question. I have googled and not really worked out what to do - I'm sure my situation is pretty normal. This is what I need to know:
My wife, my 2 daughters and myself each have a Mac computer and we each have an iPad. I do not want to have multiple iTunes accounts as we listen to a lot of the same music, play the same games, etc.
I would like the following:
Music - we each have our own independent music and some of the same music. We each access our own music in iTunes. At the moment all the music is copied from CDs - none is purchased through iTunes. Going forward I would like to be able to purchase iTunes music from any computer but make it available to any other computer. (Without re-downloading it)
Photos - we each have our iPhoto library and just need to sync to our own library.
Contacts, Calendars - just need to sync to our own info.
Apps, Books, Movies and TV Shows - here we would all like to be able to make purchases (with the same iTunes account) but each to be able to choose which content we would like. If I purchase Angry Birds, I would like the others to be able to access the game too. My thoughts here were to use one computer as the "master" computer for this content, and all other content (music and photos particularly) to be managed on each persons respective computer.
Any help with giving me a better understanding of this would be great!
