I manage the computers at a public library. We just got a donation of 2 Ipad 2's. I'd like to be able to lend the library patrons the ipads with the itunes account setup (with out a credit card) just for free apps/songs. Is it possible to create an itunes account with a 'user' password that allows free apps and songs but restricts the user from changing the profile unless they have the 'master' password?? Thanks, Vince
In a nutshell: No, this is not possible without custom modifications, like with the display models in Apple Stores. It'd be better to set up the apps and content you desire, and then lock out the functions through the parental controls to prohibit any foul play. The last thing you need is legal issues, which validly could happen. App Store apps can be downloaded after purchase by simply authenticating on a separate device. Music and other entertainment forms cannot, and hence will be stuck on the iPad if a customer decides to buy them on the iPad, leaving you guys on the hook for any transaction problems that might occur.
This might help:
Users will still be required to enter a username and password to get free apps.
Of course, you could always Jailbreak them ...
