Hi everyone. Im one of the developers of SwitchMe, and app that allows multiple secure logins into separate installations of android on a single device. The pr is after the break.

I really need a few people to check into some issues people on the A500 have been experiencing. There are some warnings involved:

- testers must perform a full nandroid backup before using the app, it is not our responsibility if you start getting boot loops

- if you report results or bugs, please use the "Write to us" function in the app whenever possible, and always describe the issue in the header of the logs you send

- if you post here, be sure to include your device type and rom

- if you have apps installed on sd, be sure to mention that as well


SwitchMe is a unique application for root users that allows you to log in and out of multiple installations of Android just as you would on a desktop computer.

The technology behind SwitchMe saves all of your applications and data, protects it and stores it as a file in memory. You can then log out of an
account and log into a fresh installation of Android or another account with its own unique content.

You may create as many profiles as the memory is capable of holding. Some of these may require very little free memory because they contain few apps,
others will be larger as they contain many applications and lots of cache and data.

Why is this functionality useful?

Privacy - the most obvious benefit is that you can securely share one device among multiple users, which gives you privacy and peace of mind.
Testing - if you are a developer, you can use profiles as clean sandboxes to test your applications and their interaction with the system.
Gaming – with multiple installations of Android on a single device, you can now play online MMOs as different characters.
Speed - the games your kids play slow down your tablet, but with SwitchMe you can easily create profiles without games or instant messengers.
Battery life - when the battery is low but there are important emails or documents to edit later, switch to a profile which only contains these essentials.

These of course are only suggestions - there are plenty of other uses for the functionality SwitchMe offers.

The Lite version allows the creation of two profiles, enough to test on.

So far so good. I'm using ezterry's simple stock rom that has root. I've been able to switch between profiles without any problems. The only thing that I've noticed that was strange happened to the app Full Screen Launcher. After the first switch from my original profile to my new profile and then back to original. My folders, shortcuts widgets and anything, other than what was there as default when the app was first launched on the desktop disappeared. This only happened on the first switch. Once I added the shortcuts and stuff back and then tried again the were as they should be. So that's really not an issue. Gameloft games that are moved to sd card via GL to SD from the Market seem to work as well.

Is there anything specific that you want checked? I'd give a few things a shot if you have something in mind. So far, I can't find anything wrong with my setup. And the app is pretty neat. Kinda cool having a fresh tablet to play with. It's even neater that I can just switch back to my profile with all of my junk.

Thank you! Please rate the app - just press the little star button at the top of the main interface.

Good ratings help us invest more in apps and give users with similar hardware peace of mind.

Thanks in advance!

Why only for the a500?

If you wish for some 501 testing, let me know.
