Re: Sign in required with latest update from the app store

Whenever my subscriptions renew I see the charge on my Visa and that is it. I just opened Flicktype and received a pop-up message thanking me for renewing my subscription, I tapped OK and once again that was it, Flicktype (the app) then opened and I received no further prompts to sign in.

Mine did that too, however it already had the apple ID filled in.

I got the impression that Apple wanted to confirm my upgrade. Actually
it's done that to me every time the subscription renews. So on the fifth
of the month Flick Type will say something to the affect that my
subscription expired. So when I go to the app and select the upgrade tab
I have to enter my Apple ID password and it sets my upgrade status back
to active.

Hi Ashley and Daniel,

I got this same treatment when I upgraded to version 2.3 148 a few days ago. I was asked to provide my Apple ID and I did with no problems. I found it a bit curious being a subscriber that it asked for this but I've suffered no ill effects of which I'm aware.

Hi Daniel,

This is the first report we've heard of this. We recommend you first going to the App Store and clicking your App Store profile to check whether you accidentally got signed out of the App Store for whatever reason. If you are signed out, signing back in here should alleviate the problem. Additionally, we do not believe risk signing in again when asked in FlickType, unless you have a jailbroken phone.

Please let us know how it goes,

Thought I would ask here first because I've read online that this is a
method in which bad people can take over an Apple ID. I haven't
entered my password yet and granted it permission.
