We have our Mac set up like this, and was hoping there was some type of "switch user" feature on the iPad so we wouldn't delay logins (when you open the cover) but we would be able to each have our own "look and feel" to the device.
Seems like a no-brainer, but have done some searching and sounds like this is a no-go. Workarounds are probably not going to work as my partner is not technically inclined.
At the very least, we'd like to both be able to check email using the native app (without a lot of fussing to log in / out, typing long passwords etc).
Possible?

Thanks.
Privacy is not the issue, rather the issue is ease of use and keeping a healthy marriage. She hates it when I change the settings (or background image, etc etc) and I hate not being able to customize the user experience to fit my needs.
We do share a laptop and use two separate user accounts. I'm very surprised that multi-user capability is not built into iOS. Bummer. Kindle is getting toasted in the press for this. Seems iPad is no better.
