Can we share apps on two ipads using two different accounts on the same computer?

I just got and iPad 2 and am giving my wife my old iPad. She has a separate itune account for her ipod. Can we share apps on the two iPads with two different accounts running on the same computer?

Dear Dah,
I now have two iPads, which I also (need to) have separate AppleID's for. I understand I can share apps between them if I authorize iTunes on my iMac with both ID's, but I am not quite sure about the correct way to do that. I already have the iMac authorized for AppleID#1. If I go into iTunes and click on Store/Authorize this Computer... and enter my AppleID#2 information into Account name and Password boxes, does this authorize my iMac's iTunes for BOTH ID's or does it just change the authorization from ID#1 to ID#2?
If the former is correct, I understand the way to proceed is to xync up both iPads to iTunes and then I can drag and drop apps from one iPad's library listings to the other, right?
If this is not the correct way to get dual authorizations, what is?
Thanks!

  • Can two peeps use iChat with different accounts on the same computer?

    What do I do to REMOVE an old AIM account and replace it with a new account in IChat?
    Can two peeps use iChat with different accounts in the same computer?
    (Actually, two people share a laptop, but one of us cannot use her AIM account cuz mine is in iChat already... And, when traveling, I have the computer - and I would like to use iChat on the computer...)

    In iChat 4 you can have more than one AIM Valid name logged in at once.
    AIM valid = AIM, @mac.com or a MobileMe name.
    What you are then stuck with is that iChat is linked to one Buddy Picture and The one Mac User Account's Address Book which may or may not have Full Names, emails details, or a Nickname in iChat 4 linked to the Screen Names.
    Whilst it does let you both log in whilst using one Mac User Account there are drawbacks about who uses the keyboard and reading meesages from the other persons Buddies.

  • Can I sync apps to my ipad using two different computers + itunes

    Hey guys,
    I'm having a bit of a problem. I have two computers (windows laptop + windows pc) which I use both for buying apps (my ipad isn't always connected to our internet), recently I bought an app on my pc and then when syncing it asked for me to 'Erase and sync'. So I did this and the app installed fine, but all my other apps were reset.
    Is it possible to use two different computers to buy apps and sync with my ipad without having to erase and sync?

    Thanks for your reply,
    Im a bit disapointed with this though, seems sort of impratical.. I dunno what to do now, what computer to stick with :/

  • How to get a Previously purchased app  from the App Store from a different account on the same computer?

    Recently had to replace my hard drive and some info has gone missing.  An App from the App Store for one.  How can I get it back now that I have a new account?  It wont let me sign on with the old one anymore.

    There's no need to create a new Apple ID just because the hard drive was replaced.
    Apps can only be re downloaded using the same Apple ID they were purchased with originally.
    You will have to re purchase the app using the new Apple ID.

  • Can I use 2 different accounts on the same Iphoto and then share all these pictures to both accounts?

    I have all my family pictures and videos on my macbook pro. Me and my wife have separate apple ids and both of us hold iphones and ipads.
    I would like to know if it´s possible to have both of our accounts registered on Iphoto so that all we photograph automatically goes to Iphoto and, thereafter gets sent to all our produtcs.
    If not, is it possible to cet the devices to automatically send all our pictures to each other and then to iphoto?

    no
    You can manually do it with a shared PS

  • How can I have two devices with separate iTunes accounts on the same computer without sharing libraries?

    I have an iPhone 3s and my sister has an iPhone 3.  We use them only as iPods.  We each have our own iTunes account, but we have to share a computer.  How can we both syn our devices without sharing our music and app libraries?

    The most reliable way would be to set up individual user accounts in WIndows. Then each of your iTunes libraries will be completely separate.
    Regards.

  • Why can't I get Aperture to open on a second account on the same computer?

    I have two accounts on mt Mac Pro, one will open Aperture, the other will not as it says I need to 'set permissions'. I opened Aperture on the primary account and looked for ways of setting permissions, but couldn;t find any. Any advice anyone can offer?
    best
    Jem

    Ah ok , libraries are on a per user basis. That is multiple users can run Aperture (as you are seeing) but each users library is private to that user.
    There are ways to share libraries between users. If you describe what it is you are trying to do and what you have one so far I'm sure help will be on the way.

  • How do you do home share with in different accounts on the same computer?

    How do you homeshare within different log in accounts (and itunes accounts) within one computer?

    Simply connect them.  One computer with one iTunes can manage multiple devices.  They're tracked by S/N but you might wish to assign them unique names so that you can track them yourself.
    The only minor issue is app updating and purchases while on the computer.  It's necessary to log out and back in to the "correct" ID.  Much easier to do these things from the iPods.

  • Is there a way to transfer or copy all my apps to another iPad with a different account? I was required in my job to use the one at work, but I would like to also see my current set ups and apps as in my personal one. Thank you so much!

    What I suggest is that you try to pair your apple ID with you company ipad and see if it works.
    Here is why::
    I believe that the Apple rules let you. They are something like:
    -- for a shared iDevice, you may put the app on one device
    -- for a device you use exclisively, you may put the app on five (or some number) of iDevices
    I'm not lawyer, so how you interpred this is a question.
    Now, you need to figure out how to do this.
    In the past at least, apple used this terminalogy.
        Personal
        Institution
        Layered. combines personal & institution.
    It depends on how your company has configured the iPad.
    I have read where you can have upto three apple id per device.

  • Home Sharing - Can you share between two accounts on the same computer?

    I haven't been able to find any info about this, but does home sharing allow you to share files between to different user accounts on the same computer? I have been struggling with trying to do this for years, and I'm really hoping this solves my problem.

    This is true in a sense; you have to use the same itunes account to activate home sharing. BUT, you don't need to use the same itunes account for general use.
    Example:
    My computer and iPhone has one itunes account.
    My wife's computer and iPhone have a totally separate account.
    I turned on Home Sharing on both machines using one account name and ID - mine.
    Now she can see and copy my music and apps, etc. I can see and copy her music, apps, etc.
    However, when she goes to the iTunes store, she still can buy and so forth *on her own account*. Same with her iPhone. And I can still do the same as well on my own account on my machine and phone.
    The only limitation seems to be updating apps: If you copy apps over to another machine using Home Sharing and install them on another phone running another account, it works great. But you can't seem to update those copied apps, unless you log in on the phone or the computer it syncs up to with the account it came from.
    Aside from that, the apps still work even when the computer it was copied to and the phone it was synced to are active on ANOTHER account.
    The key is the setup - for Home Sharing. That needs to be one account, but otherwise it's business as usual.

    Hi barryfromwarrington,
    Welcome to the Support Communities!  There are two things I can think of to keep your Stepdad's information separate from yours on the computer and the iPad.   On the computer, he should have his own administrative account, and on the iPad he needs his own Apple ID for iTunes and iCloud services.  Here is some basic information to get started.  I don't know if you have a Mac or Windows computer, so I'll include info for both.)
