[iPad] iOS 6 Apps Issues

After upgrading from 5.1.1 initially installing new apps wouldn't work. Kept taking me through a loop of security questions then saying it had timed out. And, I thought you could install free apps now w/o Apple User ID PW. I still have to input it. I had to reboot the IPad to get the apps to install and then the button you push to get the installation going seems very slow/sluggish. Have to sit and hold it for recognition or push it repeatedly to move from free to install to downloading. Just recently got my IPad and now I'm questioning if I should have waited awhile. From what I've read, I guess it's complicated to revert back to 5.1.1.

I updated iSSH this morning and it didn't prompt me for a password. I also like that it doesn't kick you out of the app store now and back to the home screen. I always thought that was stupid.

iPad 2 or 3?

My 3 is fine but AppStore is being crushed right now.

Updating apps you don't get prompted for your password. Installing all apps you do.

Thanks for the replies. So, I"m hoping this is a temporary situation. I did update 2 apps w/o PW. I thought the free apps worked that way too..glad you've clarified. I am running the IPad 3.

Only installing apps that have a fee will prompt you. You will not be prompted for free apps. I've confirmed this by installing a few free apps.

Nope. Installing all apps prompts me for a password.

I haven't bought any new apps as of yet; but updating current apps or downloading previously purchased apps (free or not) hasn't required my password.

My experience too for new-to-me apps. If you have already entered your password that session, of course you won't need it again for any apps until the phone is unlocked again anyway, as it's always been.
