    I think I have made a real mess with syncing...
    Husband bought a Mac, registering in his name.
    I bought an iPad 2 and synced to iTunes using his info.
    He has now bought an iPad 3 and unknown to me has synced his to iTunes using his info.
    All his bought apps and mine are now on 1 account on iTunes.
    We have opened a new account but can't seem to separate and transfer the different owned apps.
    Will we have to go to an Apple shop to rectify this problem?

    No, you're fine. And, to be honest, I don't see why you would want to separate the accounts. If you each have a different account, you'll end up paying twice for the same app (should you decide you want what the other has). If you use the same Apple ID in the App Store for all your purchases, you and your husband can use the app - thus only paying once for it. It's well within the rules and Apple's EULA agreement.

    You can use iTunes to ensure you only have the apps on each iPad that you wish. iTunes will know which iPad is connected and what apps is on each.

    Oh, and you can't merge accounts, so that's why that new account won't let you separate out the apps. Again, my recommendation is to pick one Apple ID to use at the store and both of you use it.
