    Hi everyone!

    I have a problem with my ipod, i bought it second-hand, so the other user filled in his emailadress in the app store.. I changed it into my emailadress, now i could buy things, but if an app has an update, i can't download the update, because then my ipod asks to fill in a password, but above it stands the emailadress of the first user and that i can't cange into mines.. Does someone knows how i could download the updates, or how i could change that enailadress my ipod asks for??

    if that app is free, just delete old one and go with your account and get it from Appstore.
    if it is paid - there is no way to update it i guess (buy it again or use it without update)

    Yes if it's paid you can't update it because he bought it with his account. So just use it without the update.

    Ooh, now I get it.. I could only update the apps that I bought with my emailadress, and I can't update the apps he bought..but now I have a question..

    In the corner of the app-store icon there is a "3" (I have 3 apps to update, that I can't update) but how could you let that disappear? Because I think it is a little annoying..

    Go to Settings -> Store -> Sign Out,

    Then you can log in with your account.

    The only way is to delete the apps since you can't update them.
