iPad2/iPod profile(s) help

OK, in our house we have 3 iPod Touches and an iPad2. I can't figure out how to set each one up with their own "profile". I used the same email addy for each so I can share apps, but all are being recognized as one profile. Is there a way to set each one up seperately by 'name', yet be able to share apps using the same email address?

...also, any other tips or suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks,

~Steve

Have you tried changing the names of the devices so that they are unique?

They should show up separate based on the serial number.

OK, when I first plugged in my youngest son's iTouch today, I chose a profile backup from one of my other son's iTouches so he would get the same apps/songs. I didn't know you could change the name by double clicking on his name under devices...all good now, thanks!!

Upgrade each to ios 5
Set up each one with the same apple id
