The Find my Friends app looks interesting, the wife can track me down now.. So that's good.

We have an iPhone each so I've created a new Apple ID for her. I've signed the new ID in on the wife's iPhone on the Find my Friends App. Works well but I'm worried that even though I signed her in on just that app, the iPhone will take that ID for everything including music, photo's etc.. Anyone know?

Is there a way of combining multiple Apple ID's under one iCloud account?

Yes. The ID you used for FMF is also the ID you used to set up her iCloud right?

For store purchases, go into Settings>Store and logout of current ID and login with the shared AppleID for iTunes/App Stores. Thats it.

Thanks, the FMF ID was a new AppleID I setup for her.. But iTunes etc is using the shared ID.... All should work ok?

That solves one problem.

What about her access to the calendar and contacts in iCloud that are under my apple id?
