    As long as it's on a regular device, there shouldn't be a password for paid apps.. there's a small risk of people charging your cc / itunes credit but iTunes support should be able to fix it.

    and then i lend my iPad to my niece, and suddenly I have 37 games about pink ponies on my iPad which iPaidfor, no thank you.

    And for the iTunes support, we suddenly get free trail for everything, they don't want that.

    no password for free apps makes sense, but paid apps....I think most people would not want that

    Agreed, that would make more sense
    What is the problem in putting in a password?

    I even disagree with this. Many free apps these days can still costs exorbitant amounts of cash via in-app purchases. (If i dont want to have to disable that for myself). I see no hassle and only benefits of typing in my password whenever I need to download something.

    It is barely a PITA to type in a password, I say leave it. I wish, however, that when the App updates it doesn't take you out of the store. It's pointless.

    I am not advocating either
    The PITA of typing my password is nothing compared to the PITA of trying to get charges take off IMO

    I agree that updates shouldn't require a password. But aside from that I don't mind it.

    I keep my phone password protected and don't lend it to anyone unless they are just making a phone call or something.

    I think it should at least be an option. If you are truly the only person who uses your phone, then it would be a nice feature.
