Some reports have shown that Jelly Bean actually comes equipped with the ability to switch users. Much like on a computer, multiple profiles can be made for multiple users and then those users can switch out their individual profiles. While not in fruition yet, it’s definitely an exciting feature for Android. Especially Android tablets. Given that they’re quickly moving up to pace with computers, having a feature to change profiles will definitely help them gain ground. However, at least for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, users can already switch profiles and they don’t need Jelly Bean to do it.
SwitchMe Application for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1
Enter SwitchMe . An application that’s been around for sometime but just recently gained compatibility with Samsung’s first really competitive tablet. The way SwitchMe works is it can create multiple user accounts. Each new account is like a separate installation of Android, as each user will have their unique data, apps, etc. This is not only extremely useful for those who have to share their tablet and don’t want their friends or family looking into their data, but it can even be useful for single users. An example is using one profile for business, with only business apps, settings, and contacts and then one for gaming, with gaming apps, settings, etc.
The installation process is pretty easy and doesn’t require much knowledge on the part of the user. Of course, in order to use the application, your Galaxy Tab—or any other device the app is compatible with—must be rooted. A good guide for rooting the Galaxy Tab can be found here. Aside from root, users simply need to install the app from the Google Play Store, open it, and follow the directions provided to get everything working. It may take a few minutes to familiarize yourself with the SwitchMe application, but once you do, it’s a cake walk.
