    This is why I might recommend the school buy something rather than going for the free alternative, really want to be able to assign an app and have it install seamlessly without any user interaction, is this possible with things like mobile iron or sophos etc?
    We enter the password as we dont want students or staff to have access that that specific apple ID for various reasons.

    You can configure ipads to remember the apple ID and also untick a box which says "prompt for password everytime" or words to that effect (cant remember off top of my head). Dont know what will happen if you then allocate an app via MDM software with those configs.

    I thought the app store always wanted a password at least once when installing apps. If you install multiple though it doesnt require multiple password entries?

    EDIT* never come across an MDM solution for ipads paid for or free that will install apps without some kind of password. Didnt see any at BETT either but then again didnt see everything I wanted at BETT so maybe someone else knows of something?

    Whether you enter a password on the iPad to install the App depends on which model of App distribution method you are using 'Personal" "Institution" or "layered"

    If iPads are being installed using in Apple Configurator Apps don't require a username or password, you can use a "free" iTunes account to install apps using the Lightspeed MDM solution.
