Just got a new iPad from the school district.  The district technician loaded it w/ apps, however, our school librarian has some different apps that she syncs locally for the iPads we use in our classrooms.  I'd like to have some of our school apps, but not wipe out those that have already been loaded.  Is there a way to do this?

    Assuming they didn't block the app store. On the iPad go to "Settings" then "iTunes and App Stores". Select the Apple ID and signout with the school ID and sign in with the other Apple ID. Now you can download additional apps under that account.


    Just remember when updates become avaiable for the apps, it will ask for your password for each Apple ID.

    Yes very Easy.

    Go to App store select Featured or Top of charts.  scroll to bottom of page Logout of current Applestore ID and then log in using an existing user Name.  Passwords required for all of this. Then go into Updates or more and select purchased. there will be Two colums here on the device. ON DEVICE  and not of this device, Select not on device,once there select App and download. Then go back to Featured and log out and relogin under main account
