    Hmm that happened to me once. You simply have to delete the app and download it from your account. To log in on your account, go to App Store>Featured>Scroll Down to bottom> click the ID>log out and log in to yours :)

    I'd just like to add in and say it is saying I downloaded the apps from my mothers Apple ID, which I have never used. I also need to update 30 apps, and am not excited about deleting them all, and reinstalling them when I am positive it is the correct account. Also, I just recently updated my iPad and starting it up it had an old Apple ID of mine that and no longer use and did not use on the iPad. Because of this I had to skip a step in the updating process, then the apps wouldn't update. Please help!
