    so I'm trying to figure something out. heres the set up:
    MBP, 2 accounts, me and my wife
    Itunes, we each have an iTunes account as we both have iPhones (i have and iPad as well)

    what i would like to do is be able to share my music/apps/books/videos between both the user accounts and iTunes accounts.
    i want to be able to open iTunes, have all my stuff and be logged into my iTunes account.
    then i want my my wife to be able to get all the same music apps etc while logged into her user/tunes account.
    but to finish it off, I'm trying to get it so, if i add music etc, she sees it when she logs in and vice versa.

    i have seen some ways but nothing seems to be what I'm looking for. once i get that, then i have to see how to sync that to the mac pro.

    thanks for any help in advance

    Not exactly sure what you want is possible. But maybe hold option while opening itunes while logged into her user, direct it to open YOUR itunes library. Both will always be in sync no matter who is logged in on the laptop.

    Even if you can figure out a syncing solution (redirecting your files to a shared Dropbox folder would probably work), it won't do you a lot of good.

    Account A's apps/videos will only run/play/sync on your device when you're signed in under Account A.
