    I migrate between US and France. My IPAD and computers are currently linked to US itunes store. Can I set up a new account in France (I have French credit card and address) and use apps and purchases from both places on my IPAD?

    Absolutely - it's not a problem at all. Several of our Members have multiple iTunes accounts for exactly the same reason. You don't even need a credit card - an Apple Gift Card is all you need.

    Have fun...

    How to create multiple acccounts

    Thanks for previous help - but that brings up another problem. My Itunes account says that 5 computers are authorized to play content purchased with this Apple ID - and it only allows me to de-authorize all (not specific ones) - I am currently using 3 computers and an ipod touch and an old nano (are these counted as computers?) and it is possible that I had previously authorized older computers that I no longer have.

    Is this relevant to authorizing a 2nd Itunes account? I am not sure how to create a 2nd (french) account... Do I create it outside of my American Itunes account? Do I just start a new Itunes account as if I were another person with a different login or is the new account somehow linked to the old one?

    I'll move this to the Help section where I think it will attract more attention
