    Last night the App store just randomly started asking for my password every time I click on the App store... I only ever use to get it when I would download an app or update! I tried signing out and signing in, reboot, and nothing seems to work... My username is there but it always asks for the password! Anyone else have this or know what is going on?!?

    I think I seemed to fix it... I know that as soon as I am done posting this it is going to start again... haha! I think it started last night when I downloaded the "Four Free" update from the App store... while it was installing it kept prompting me to "Log into the App store on iTunes on the computer to complete installation" (I can't remember word for word but that is close and I have never seen it before)! Ever since then I would always get prompted for a password when loading the App store!

    To fix it, I opened up iTunes on the computer and there was a "Downloads" subgroup under the iTunes Store link (like under the Music, Videos, etc. groups)... I clicked that and it told me there was a download waiting... sure enough I was prompted for my password and the Four Free update downloaded! I also clicked on my account in iTunes (just for the sake of making sure I was logged in) and it asked me for my password again... After this I synced my iPhone and everything has been working with NO password when logging into the App store! Hopefully it stays that way... :D

    That makes sense... I was trying to download the Remote app via phone and had network trouble and had to re-try. So, I'm probably stuck in some kind of authentication limbo. I'll try to sync up and see if that fixes things.
