so itunes don't ask for confirmation before we buying paid apps now?

is it only me or everyone got the same problem?
few days ago before 24th i bought few games and they all ask me am i sure to buy this app.
but this morning i bought another game again and after i click the buy button it just started download immediately. i am sure i didn't touched any settings between these few days.

if this is the new policy than i think lots of buyers will accidentally bought something they are not intended to buy.

e.g. when some apps changes their prices, itunes will shown as free but when u click the buy button it will ask you are u sure to buy it so obviously it is not free yet at that moment. kind of dangerous huh?

I hope not did you buy anything else before hand though because that makes the pass last for 15 minutes.

I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out

Yep, this - or you might have disabled it accidentally.
Check your "my store" settings.

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

Previously you were only able to review purchased apps but I discovered (a week ago or so) that I could give reviews for all apps. They've somehow changed stuff and because of it I made a lot of unintended purchases.

I noticed this too. I even reset all my settings before a purchase and bam no confirmation. Still there for music though. I hope it is a glitch because I liked the security of the confirmation.

On my iPad this always been like that but there's preference? Well then it was relatively well hidden among other option because on my computer with itunes I had no problem to force ask confirmation.

iPad System panel, Store section, zero options and it's not new. Mmm is this hidden in restriction section?

I noticed this too, and I don't like it at all.
Must be a change in the app store itself, because I sure didn't change any settings on it.

I still get asked on the device, just not the computer - I just reset the warning dialogue again but won't be able to test that until there is something I want to purchase. Just weird one day it was here all fine, the next gone.
