iPad: You use your iPad, your spouse uses your iPad, so who gets the privilege of having the iPad remember their Facebook and Gmail info? With OurPad, you both do.
It’s one of the more glaring oversights in the iPad design. Unlike an iPhone that is usually only used by one person, multiple people often use the same iPad. A simple mechanism for switching user profiles would be enormously helpful but is conspicuously absent from the device.
OurPad steps in to help fill the gap. It’s not a perfect solution but it does make it dead simple to switch between Facebook, GMail, MSN/Hotmail, Yahoo!, and Twitter accounts for multiple users.
OurPad is free, iPad only.
