    I want to manage my apps using ONLY my iPhone without running iTunes on my computer to dock/sync.

    Is it possible to SHARE multiple apps from multiple different App/iTunes accounts on a single iPhone without using iTunes on the desktop to sync?

    For example, is it possible for me to log into one account on my iPhone, download the apps I need, then log out of that account and log into a different account, download more apps I need from the other account? Would the apps from the earlier account be deleted or become inactive once I log into the later account?

    My situation is a mess. I have apps from two accounts. I'm sure that's why in iOS 5, on my iPhone 4S, apps purchased with my older account crash as soon as I open them.

    The only way I can stop the apps from crashing is delete them from my iPhone and purchase them. I did that for all except TomTom. Not sure if I'm ready to spend ANOTHER $50 even though the present app does not work and I did pay for it once.

    This is terrible news. I am so sorry to hear your situation.

    There must be a better way to handle multiple app accounts on a single iPhone. Can someone please help?
