    I might have missed an answer to this but I couldn't find a great answer in a simple forum search. So, I propose that this should be a sticky for awhile since I imagine we will get a bunch of these types of questions. Well, I assume this, since it is my question and thus it is uber important to everyone. :rolleyes:

    Many households share one iTunes account, since that is the best way to buy music and apps just once and share them with everyone in the house without multiple purchases.

    Now with iCloud our pictures, calendars, notes, reminders, etc... will all be sync'd via iCloud. However, most families don't want all of these things sync'd, just the apps and music. So, what are the steps to set everyone up separately for the cloud, yet retain the ability to share apps and music?

    All have seperate iCloud accounts, but all use the same account in the App Store.

    Brilliant, thanks. But will this sync music since it was purchased in the iTunes store?

    How did you setup separate iCloud accounts? When I try on the iPad2 it only allows for the main apple ID account.
