    Seperate i-tunes account ???

    Hi folks,

    Got two new IPAD-2's (32G 3G) one for my Wife and myself. I had a "1" and sold it last December. I-Tunes is still ok with all the apps.

    Trying to set up a second account for my Wife and can't figure out how to do it. I-tunes is already on the computer once.

    None of the "help" areas explain. How do I add a second I-tunes acount with password and e-mail for the Wife??

    Thanks....Ken

    Tbh I wouldn't bother, it's easy to setup different sync profiles for different devices in iTunes and keeping one account makes it easier to share apps and media between the devices, I share my account between the wife and my iPhone and my iPad, all with different sync setups. However if need be a new app or music bought thru iTunes is easily shared to the other devices.

    If you must have a separate accounts, for whatever reason, you need separate user logons for the computer. Each user account on the computer will have it's own iTunes library and settings.

    In the iTunes iBooks Store, and App Store, the bottom left corner of the main page you will see either your current ID or LogIn. Tap on it to log in and out of each store.
