    It seems as though possibly someone else is using your iPad. But go to 'Settings', 'Restrictions' and there you can set it so that no new apps can be installed. You can easily delete the unwanted apps by pressing and holding any app's icon until they all start to jiggle and then touching the upper left hand corner of the app to delete it. You'll be asked to confirm that you actually want to delete the app, then.

    Just curious...what apps are you talking about exactly? Unless your iPad is jailbroken, there are no "dirty apps" in Apple's App Store. Plus what Tim said is true...someone would have to be downloading apps. It's impossible for any to be "popping up".

    I was going to ask the same thing. Inquiring Minds Want To Know.

    If someone is downloading apps to a different device on the same iTunes account, iTunes may be set up to send them to all devices on the account.
