iTunes 11 "Update All Apps" problem?

hello all!
I've been using iTunes 11 for awhile now... and ever since switching to it, it has killed my interest in iOS stuff since I can no longer update as easily as I used to.

I have three accounts linked to my iTunes
SG
US
JP
All three accounts have been authorized on my PC

however, whenever I click Update All Apps
I would get a prompt asking me to login to another account of mine or a prompt saying I need to be in another store. No matter how I switch around, I can't just update my apps. I need to click over 300 apps one by one, login and out, to update them...

This is extremely frustrating.. any advice?

I don't know what else you can do, but If all else fails. Use a program named - iTools (I use it) I had trouble syncing apps to my iPhone 5 with iTunes. iTools is better IMO. Works flawlessly with PC or MAC. It should be able to fix your update issue.

This sounds kinda normal to me. Having more than one account has always been absolutely rubbish on iOS. You've always had to login to each one to update, though I'm not sure if you had to click on every single app or just once per account.
