iPad Multi-User Browser Launches

One thing the Apple iPad lacks it a bit of privacy where some apps are concerned. If someone “borrows” your iPad then they have full access to most apps and most data unless the app is password protected.

The Switch app in the iTunes store tackles the problem of browser privacy by allowing several users to use the browser, but by each authenticating with their own username and password. What this does is let users keep their own bookmarks, tabs and history so that others don’t mess.


– Share an iPad between the family without getting in each other’s way
– Use a single password to protect your email, facebook and other websites
– Keep your own tabs and bookmarks for faster browsing
– Search your history by typing in the location bar
– Let friends use your iPad without giving them access to your online accounts
– Switch between website logins easily without retyping your password
– Use the guest account for extra privacy when surfing – your history is erased when you close Switch or lock the screen
– Ever get nervous leaving iPad around with your email account logged in? With Switch, everything is protected by one password, automatically enabled when the screen is locked
– Smooth animations and a simple, beautiful interface make Switch a joy to use

Overall, a very handy app that lets you have some kind of privacy. The app is available now in the iTunes store and costs $4.99 in the US (converted to other price tags in other countries of course).
