    Hi
    I'm making a series of apps. There are three of them. They actually differ only in content. But settings needed for all three of them are the same. So in order user not to fill the same three times, I think it will be fine to have one setting section in Settings app. I mean I use the same Settings.bundle in a project for all it's three targets. I've even set it's 'Title' string property (in Root.plist) to some value, so that it would be the same for all three targets. But this does not help - I've got three sections in Settings.app, each with a name of target.
    Is it actually possible to have single section in Settings.app for several apps?

    I am no expert

    I see 2 problems

    1) when an app is running, it petty much is the only app running other than a few system processes to run with the phone.

    2) each app plays in its own sandbox, meaning it cannot access other apps data on the device.

    now I could be wrong, but that is how I read the device is setup to run.
