1 - I'm thinking keep going as you are. One ID, two different sets of content
2 - you can't have dual users on the iPad. Even try it and it'll mess up your apps.
3 - if you give each phone a different name you can manually manage the content on each phone. I have an iPad and Touch and iPod and they each have different things on them.
4 - There's only me so I have no idea if i can have 'jane's' faceboon on Jane's iPad and Martin's faceboon on Martin's i pad, but I don't see why you can't.
I understand the AppleID is for a single user. I can't be the only person who has an iPad, 2 or more iPhones, and a multi-user PC of some type where the iPad is the choke point.
If no iPad, I would have seperate AppleIDs for each phone user and then each could synch with iTunes on the PCs /cloud through their PC login and iTunes account. and keep them seperate.
Again, how does one integrate the iPad into this? Let's here from Apple on this.
I had exhausted Google and Apple support sites. I think next stop is to go the local Apple store and get the genuises help face-to-face.
It would be interesting to get a poll to see how many users use iPads as a single-user device at home.
BTW: I have been using Apple products since I had 3 Macs (the ORIGINAL 9" BW ones) appletalked to my apple laserwriter (at home!) . Just gave away my age bracket.
Has anyone found more on this subject? I really am interested in adding this feature!
For the statement that iPad is meant to be a single user device, maybe it was designed to be that way but does not mean it can't be changed. I used to carry a BlackBerry for work in the old days and searched madly for the ability to play MP3 files to limit the devices I carried. I always ran into the guy that had to tell me that "a BlackBerry is not designed to be a MP3 player." Now we have iPhones, Windows phones and Android phones that handle multimedia.
I have an ipad2 and a iphone4 and a ipod touch 1g
using 1 appleID
(all having their own backup and their own content in terms of apps and music and movies)
wife got an ipad touch 3g using her own appleID (she sync with her own computer though)
it no problem at all
if she were to sync with my computer though then It would be don by making a new account on the computer to avoid the whole mess with more then 1 appleID
