Working and playing with an iPad is an immersive, singular experience. Designed to be held in two hands, cradled in a lap or propped up against a knee, the tablet is perfect for a bit of alone time: just you, your digital media and a few well-chosen apps.
But once you put your tablet down, it’s fair game for anyone else that you live with to it pick up and use. To keep what you do with your iPad private, you could password protect it, but that sort of thing just breeds mistrust and tablet envy. You might consider giving all comers free reign to tap and swipe to their heart’s content, but will they laugh or blush at your email or browser history as a result?
No one needs that kind of stress in their life. Let Mac|Life show you how to make sharing an iPad a little easier and more pleasurable for everyone with these six multi-user wonder apps.
If your Mac has multiple users, you've no doubt been at a frustrating moment when you've need to log out in order to let another user log onto your computer. Usually this happens when you're running a ton of applications and the last thing you want to do is interupt your process and have to save all of your work. There is a better way, however, that will let you switch users without completely logging out of your account.
