My wife and I each have iTunes on our PCs. Originally, I set these up with separate iTunes Store accounts. I was led to believe that we ought to do this because an email address is used for the Apple ID, and we each have one. I'm thinking now that was a mistake?
Here's the problem: Each of us now has an iPad, and we're each buying apps on our own accounts and syncing to our own PCs. Because of these separate accounts and iTunes PCs, I understand we're unable to share our purchases – which, AFAIK, Apple expressly permits on up to 5 associated family devices. (Please correct me if I'm wrong.)
Is it possible to merge or consolidate two different Apple iTunes Store accounts so we can share the apps and other purchases we've made? (We are married, so legally it is community property anyway! :-)
Alternatively, is there a way we could maintain our separate accounts but still sync each others' devices in a way to get both sets of apps on each iPad? We've already made some redundant purchases (and thus wasted some $) and I'd like to avoid that in the future, if possible!
