    Default Question...2 iPhones, 1 iMac, 2 iTunes accounts

    I have a 3GS. My girlfriend just got an iPhone 4 today (jealous!). We share the same iMac on the same OS User, with different iTunes accounts. I synced her iP4 to iTunes and it transferred all of my apps to her phone. Now when she went to update them from her phone, it showed my account name asking for my password. Is there a way for it NOT to ask for my info to update the apps on HER phone?

    Basically, is it possible to share our apps between each other without needing each others passwords to update our apps?

    the only way to share apps between the two of you is to use one account. iTunes doesn't tell the media apart for the phones.

    Update all the apps on the Mac or on your phone, then sync your phone. Now just sync her phone and all her apps will be updated. If you break up then it's her problem.
