Please Help me with ITUNES
I have a itunes account, my daughter got a hold of my password. $ 45 dollars later, I needed to change my password. That could have really gotten out of hand.
Anyway my question is can I create a itunes account for my daughter and not link a credit card up to it so she can download free games.
Will I be able to sync her Ipad with my itunes account on my laptop even if the ipad has apps from her account and my account.
Or will I have to keep the games downloaded from her itunes account on the ipad only.

Cant I just create a new user account that does not have a credit card linked to it ?
This way she can sign in and download what she wants.
If I dont sync apps while logged into my account they will just reside on the ipad correct ?

Not so easy..
In the instructions there is a field where you can select no credit card
I followed the instructions and there is no feild where you can select no credit card.
Maybe it changed since this was written ?>
Anyone else have any ideas ?/

I Stand corrected
I did not start with selecting a free app as my first step
Once I did that it worked fine
My second question is what will happen if I try to sync her Ipad to my itunes account with apps from both her account and my account on the same ipad?
Havent tried it yet

I dont plan on syncing two accounts. I think.
She justs downloads games on her ipad under her account but never synced it to a i tunes account on a computer except under mine.
Does this make sense ?
Itunes is confusing enough under one account nevermind 2
So I guess I will try to sync and see what happens

You can create a new iTunes library just for her using your OS-User.
You have to press Shift and then click the iTunes logo.
If done correctly, iTunes will ask you which iTunes library you want to use, or if you want to create a new library.
Create a new library on a new directory.
Now you can sync her iPad on your computer using her very own iTunes library.
If you sync using your iTunes library choose not to sync apps. You can always install your apps using your account on her iPad on the iPad (hope that makes sense). I'm doing it on my wife's iPhone that way.
BTW: iTunes offers allowances on accounts. (search for itunes account kid allowance in google)
