Save Your App Store Password So You Don't Have To Constantly Re-Enter It

iOS (Jailbroken): One of the most annoying things about installing and updating apps on an iPhone is that you have to reenter your password every time. This is an understandable problem, as it's more secure to ask you, but it would be nice if there were an option to avoid it. If you're jailbroken, there actually is.

Password Pilot is a free tweak you can find on Cydia (the jailbreak app store) that will remember you password, keep it encrypted, and enter it for you automatically whenever iOS requests it. That's all it does, but it's a relief to have it remove that one, considerable annoyance. If you want to support the developer and gain a few more features, you can also find Password Pilot Pro on Cydia for $US2. It will let you customise when your password is filled in and when it should be left blank.

    Personally I'd rather stick it out until iOS 6 implements this natively. Not denying how useful it'd be, but I feel a bit uneasy giving anyone but Apple my Apple ID password regardless of how well encrypted the data is.

    You might as well give them your password, who is to say that this isnt a hacker that is trolling for apple id passwords.

    Anything is possible in this crazy world of ours.
