    Am I the only one bothered by this??

    So it seems like everytime I open the App Store or iTunes on my iPhone 3GS I get asked for my password!! I don't care about an app that didn't update or a download that failed earlier! I just want to do what I'm doing now, and not be bothered by entering my password for some reason that I don't even remember or care about.

    Is this a useless rant or do others feel the same way?

    it does get rather annoying to put your password in each and every time you download an app. they should have it that once you turn your phone on you enter a master password and everything is set.

    Useless rant.

    Your password is saved for a few minutes if you want to download a bunch of things at once.

    I don't think it's clear what I mean. It asks me for my password upon opening the iTunes or App Store applications. It's asking me for my password for something I don't even remember doing! Must be app updates or downloads that failed for being too large to dl over data (not wifi), but it doesn't even tell me what I'm entering my password for!!

    It sems that i stand alone, but I'm not convinced. I don't feel that I should be asked to enter my password when I don't know what I'm authorizing (even if it is an action I initiated on a previous occasion).
