Can you make profiles on iPod? Such as Windows, where each user can use the same applications. ((So another user could use my Workout Apps and save their own personal scores))

iOS devices themselves don't offer profiles, but some apps do (mostly games).

There are no known tweaks?

None that I'm aware of...

In theory, it should be possible to create a second user (first one is the default mobile user), and have it log into that at start time instead, but I have a suspicion that a lot of things would start to break. None of the standard user commands are on there, and that'd have to be the starting point. It'd be kind of a cool thing to be able to do, but would require a massive amount of work to get the framework in place. On top of that, I suspect that the mobile user account is probably hardcoded in there a lot, so all sorts of things would break.

A quick google search found these:

Both are for iPad, and neither is released yet, however I expect with enough prodding one of these developers could be convinced to compile for iPod or iPhone.

There is also iAccounts in Cydia, but doesn't work past iOS 3 and everything I read about it says it is buggy.
