No it's not that easy. I open and it asks. I close, open again and it asks again. I can put my password in 5 times in 10 minutes and it will ask again.Do you have updates to be installed? It will always ask for your password for any action taken in the app store. I should say for the first transaction in that period. If you go out and back again and there is another it will ask again. My Touch acts the same.
However just to enter the app store---no, no request for password.
Yes it is. Mine asks every single time I open the app. It didn't used to do that. I would say this has been happening for 2-3 weeks now and the strange thing is that it never happens with my iPhone!No I'm not jail broken and I haven't ever been jail broken. Weird issue hopefully a fix is coming BEFORE iOS 4 for iPad.
