    I'm having the same problem. Do you have a credit card on file for your account? Because I don't and I was wondering if that was the problem for me.

    I get prompted for both username and password and get rejected. Had to update apps through iTunes on my Macbook. No problem there. Some have suggested to do a backup and then restore. Did the backup but hesitant about the restore in case I lose some data (like calendar entries).

    If you have never downloaded the app before
    it will prompt for password.
    If its a redownload it shouldn't.

    It seems like it works for me when I update apps and even then it's only every once in a while that I don't have to put it in to update.

    You still have to. Only when you update do you not have to.

    It's working normally. You only don't need the password for updates. Anything else still needs it.
