    My wife and I share the iPod Touch 3G. Under the native Mail app, I was able to setup our separate GMail accounts but when using other Google Mobile apps (Reader, Docs, etc), it uses just one account at a time.

    Is there a way to access multiple Google accounts simultaneously?

    Thanks

    I think the only solution is to log out and log back in with the other account.

    That's a bummer. I was hoping there was a way to stay signed into multiple Google accounts, sort of like how Firefox supports multiple profiles at the same time.

    Anyone else? Thanks

    Well Mail needs many improvements. I agree that you should be able to do that.

    You can use multiple accounts with the built in mail client?

    The OP wanted to know if he could be signed into multiple accounts on Google's website.

    Not the Mail application, which supports multiple accounts.

    The mail app can use multiple accounts like the others said. I don't know why you made a thread that said you can help others if others are correcting you. =P

    If you have separate itunes accounts, you just might be able to install two different versions of the google app, one for each itune acct/email.

    I do know that I can use my son's itune.email for installing apps he bought, and he uses mine to install my apps. Though it doesn't work to backup apps.

    I dunno, otherwise.
    Let us know if that works.
