I'm considering getting one of the Nexus tablets for my family. I think the multi-user support is a great way to separate my apps from the kids games. But what I've read about the implementation of multiple users seems lacking. Without a device to experiment on I am left to ask here how this works.
What I would like to do is setup myself as owner, with my Google email address and Play Store credentials. Next I'd like to add users for my wife and my kids. Setting up a profile for my wife is easy as she has her own android phone and I can use her Google account for that. It's adding a user profile for each of my kids that I'm uncertain about.
My kids are young and don't have email addresses. Nor do I want them to yet. Do I have to create an address for each of them? What are my alternatives?
Can I configure the Play store for the kids user profiles to use my Play store sign-on / credentials? On my phone I have the option of doing this, though I don't know what effect it would have there either (does it uninstall the apps from the first sign on and sync down those from the second)?
Obviously I don't want to pay multiple times for apps for my kids. It's one thing for adults to buy their own apps, but does Google really expect each kid to have an associated credit card and to buy their own apps?
Any assistance in the correct way to configure the tablet would be appreciated.
