iPad Multi-user Support: Long overdue improvement

Posted on by Mike Evans

Good news that Apple could just be thinking about adding multi-user support to the iPad. This lack is one of my biggest criticisms of the iPad. Many’s the time friends have asked to use my iPad and I am always reluctant because they have full access to everything, including email accounts, text messages and other confidential material.

With OSX, on the other hand, I have no such problems. I create accounts for visitors, or let them use the guest account which basically gives access to web browsing. If truth were known, this is all most people want. It’s clear and straightfoward and carries little risk. Roll on, then, the advent of a multi-user environment on the iPad.
