Set password requirement in App Catalog

Purchasing an app in the App Catalog is a fairly straightforward task.  Find an app, tap the "Download for $X" button, put in your Palm Profile password, and confirm one last time that you want to purchase the app.  Then, you go to purchase a second app and it doesn't ask you for your password.  Why is that?

In the App Catalog "Preferences & Account" (accessible by swiping down from the top-left corner of the screen while in the App Catalog), there is an option called "Password is Required" that will allow you to specify if you want your Palm Profile password to be inputted at every transaction or only once every 4 hours.  For your account security and to ensure that anyone with access to your phone does not purchase apps you do not want, you may want to consider changing that to "Every Purchase".
