    If you have an account with the App Store it always wants you to put in your password in case you buy something. :RollEyes: It did me this time even though it was free.


    Anyway success, it downloaded easily on my next attempt and is now on. It looks like an improvement but what do I know I have only just learned how to switch the damn thing on.

    Don't forget to update your iPads/ iPhones etc. to iOS 7.0.3 if you want to enable key chain syncing. Also contains a few bug fixes.

    What the hell do you expect from a Maverick ?
