    Like most people, I download most of my apps from my ipad. When I first got it, I when I downloaded an app, it required my password. Then, for the next month, I rarely had to type in my itunes password to download, now I have to every time. Can someone please help?

    I don't think you can shut it off and you probably don't want to. I know it is a huge PITA to type it in, but it is actually for your protection in case someone gets ahold of your iPad so that they don't download a couple hundred dollars worth of apps, movies and music.

    When you purchase something you then have about 10 or 15 minutes after that you dont have to enter the password again.

    Why not let you disable it for free apps? I can understand having to put in your password for paid apps but not free apps!

    Sometimes apps change prices from paid to free and vice versa. So rather than deal with code in the App Store to figure "if app on sale, then...", it's easier to require a password all the time.

    How often do you purchase apps that this is a problem.

    all apps are purchased with an account no matter the price. You must log in to make purchases. Once logged in you will have about 5 minutes where it wont ask you for the password again
