Ever wished to have multiple user accounts on your Android just like in your computer? A new app for Android, Switchme, lets you do that!
It can create multiple profiles (like a guest profile) in your phone which you can switch between anytime. It saves all the information for a particular profile including your applications and data as a file in the memory.

The app, Switchme, is perfect for situations when you wish to give your phone to any of your friends/kids/parents without worrying about any changes that they can make to your phone. Oh yes, if you lead a double life like Dexter, this app was made just for you!
- Profiles can be switched instantly, only a reboot is required.
- A new profile is like a fresh build of Android with default settings, nothing else, as if the phone is being activated for the first time.
Profiles can be password protected.
The lite version is limited to only two profiles at a time without support for password protection.
Although the application worked without any problem on my Galaxy S2 (running CyanogenMod 9), it may not support your ROM yet. So we recommend making a backup of your ROM before trying it app out.
Hey Google, can we see a similar feature for multiple accounts implement in Android 5, please?
