OurPad Brings Multiple Account Management to the iPad

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.

If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.

    Thanks for such great app. I am now using it daily.

    I do not whether it is possible but your app will be perfected if it allow user to create it own entry for access. How about just let user define the url, what to fill-in or ignire to input field 1, 2, 3 …

    Thanks again for creating and sharing with us free.
