Hello.

Is it possible to have multiple iTunes accounts in the same iTunes library and have apps from both accounts synced into my iPhone?

Basically I'd like to have two iTunes accounts as I have two different credit cards and I'd like to separate my purchases for a couple of reasons..


Thanks in advance for any answer.

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.5.4), iPhone 3G

    Yes, just make sure that you log into one account and Authorize that computer for that account and then log into the 2nd account and authorize the computer for that account as well. I do this because my wife and I both have iTunes accounts and we share our purchases. Once you do this, you should be able to sync with anything from those 2 accounts without being logged in.

    In iTunes, go to Store > Authorize Computer > (Enter in Account info). You can have up to 5 computers authorized for each iTunes account. You will be able to sync purchases from both accounts to your iPhone, but you will only be able to use one account (the one you last signed on to on iTunes) for the iTunes Wi-Fi Music Store and App Store on the iPhone.

    I confirm this is possible, even with iTunes accounts from different countries. I have UK and Swiss accounts synced to my device currently. Had to do this to get the Google app which still hasn't been released in the Swiss store.
