2 users on same iTunes?
I´m new to the iWorld Normally i´m over at CrackBerry but I decided that the perfect companion for my BlackBerry would have to be the iPad2.
(My BB is a BES connected company phone but App´s for BB in DK is practically not existing, and the Playbook is at least 6 months away)
So getting a Pad for personal use, I decided on the iPad
Now, my Wife allready has an iPhone connected to iTunes on our Home PC which runs with 1 user only.
Since all music and pictures are on that PC I would like to sync against this one as well with my iPad. But should I create a new Apple ID to seperate apps in the apps store or would there be any benefits from using the same Apple ID.
All other advice and tips is more than welcome

Thanks for Your replies.
Would it also work if I opted for a different Apple ID for for my iPad than the Apple ID that my wifes iPhone is using.
I gather that Home sharing of iTunes library would not work on both devices if they have different A-ID but what else could I be missing....

Ditto to what Alli said. I have four IPhones on my account as well as my IPad2 and my Macbook. ITunes will handle it all. Just name your devices whatever you want to name them to make them yours. Like Alli said, you don't want to pay for the same app twice especially if it's an app that works on IPads or IPhones/Touches. Buy it once and all your devices can enjoy!

You can share apps without having the same apple ID. You just have make sure the computer that you are using to sync your phone with has the app on it that you want to sync, and that it is authorized by iTunes for the account that bought the app.

No problem. Just don't be surprised if someone here doesn't jump on ya for doing that lol. Some people think that they deserve the other $15 or however much the app costs, but in my opinion he already bought it on another platform if it's made by the same developer than he shouldn't have to pay for it again

I think you can have 5 devices on one account, sharing the stuff you buy (music, apps, movies, whatever). So if you buy MLB from your phone, you can share it with your PC, and with your husband's phone if it is on of your My 5 on your account.
