We have several people using the same computer and the same user account. However, each person has a different iTunes account.

With respect to the Apps section, is there anyway to view the ownership of multiple Apps? I can only find out the Account Name (purchaser) of one App at a time, via + I.

How can I get this information all at once?

iMac Intel 2.8GHz Core 2 Duo, Mac OS X (10.5.4), 2GB RAM

and push Command + "I", or right-click on the app and click "Get Info", or click on the app and navigate to File>Get Info (sixth command from the bottom).

All three of these will allow you to see the account name and email of the person who purchased them.
