    The feature that I want the most is to be able to set different users account. If I pass my iPad to my brother or mom or anybody, they can access my Twitter, Facebook, photos, contacts... Same with my iPhone, whenever someone tells me they want to "play a game" on my phone, I get all nervous because they can see all my stuff. Wish apple would make some sort of Guest account or something like that. Does Android have that feature?

    Anybody else agrees?

    Android is starting to build on that .. however for an instant solution, use "Guided Access" under Accessibility .. you can lock the user into one app and it wont come out of it without a passcode which you can set adhoc everytime. Good for passing to friends for single games, etc

    Yeah, Guieded Access definitely could solve some of your problems... I was TRYING to post about Guided Access but then I lost cell service. -_-

    That is an AMAZING idea. Do it on the MacBooks even!

    I'm not giving my iOS device to anyone. It's a personal device. If I ever gave it for some reason it would be my decision. Everyone wants their own iOS device, it's not an iMac where you have resources and actual logic to have multiple user accounts.

    it would be a feature that I would like to see, but definitely not on top of anyone's list who doesn't share their device with anyone else.

    I would even love a "Personal" and "Work" mode so I can use things like Mail & Calendar easily without data crossing over.
