    Hi I am new to the forum. I got two IPads for Christmas - lucky me, one from my husband and one from my brother. Now I am trying to set up second iPad to use same iTunes account but not have the ability to sync each others apps etc. I want them to work seperately so I can let me daughter use one.

    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    It may be better to set up another User Account on your computer and sync them separately.
    Here is a thread which will explain the process better for you by a very knowledgeable member Twerppoet.

    When you connect each iPad to iTunes, go through the sync settings for them. They should stick.

    Though I've noticed a bit of app leakage lately, I'm inclined to think it has more to do with the new app purchase settings under the Store settings on both the iPad and in iTunes.
