    SwitchMe - share your device!

    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.

    SwitchMe is a unique application for root users that allows you to log in and out of multiple user spaces just as you would on a desktop computer, with each profile having its own separate system settings, apps and data.

    Some of the benefits of this technology:

    Securely share one device among many users, protect your accounts with passwords and log out automatically.

    Create a profile for the kids, with only the apps and access you feel comfortable with.

    Overclock your profile for maximum performance in intensive games

    Imagine a buttery smooth profile, with no kids games, messengers or bloatware to slow things down.

    Create a sandbox profile to easily test applications and themes - no more nandroid nightmares!

    Switch to a profile which only contains the essentials to save power through brute force.

    Critical usage warning:

    Incorrect use of this application can potentially harm your device. Before proceeding with use we strongly recommend that you perform a full nandroid backup through the device recovery.


    Without the Key, this application allows a maximum of 2 profiles and no security features.

    Only the standard Android implementation of Apps2SD is currently supported. Use all others at your own risk.

    Most devices should be compatible as long as they have enough free internal memory to create secondary profiles. The application will warn users if available memory is low.
    These of course are only suggestions - there are plenty of other uses for the functionality SwitchMe offers.

    The free version allows the creation of two profiles and has no security features.

    I just purchased this today, in the few hours I have used it, it works well. It backs up the first profile and wipes the device for the next user. I have three users and it is just like logging on and off your computer.

    Only one question. Is there any way to get the lock screen icons to work? There are the user icons on the lock screen I can only log on the user that the app started with, could you have the lock screen switch users when the appropriate icon is touched? It would be a nice addition

    Hi. You need to drag the ring onto the icons...

    I know I am a little late to this post, but I bought your app for my Gnex, and so far it is working well, and responding perfectly. Google doesn't have user switching for phones, which I understand, but your app does the trick. I though it would slow down my phone, but so far it hasn't.
    I saw you just updated it, great support.

    Quick question, if for some reason I need to uninstall the app, can I just uninstall it via settings on the phone after wiping my profiles (except my default profile), or is there something special I need to do to uninstall the app? Thanks.
