Regardless of the app being paid or free an authorised iTunes account is required
However iOS 6 does away with having to enter iTunes account details to update apps

Open App Store on the device go to updates update apps
No passwords required (iOS 6)
Alternatively have the users create their own iTunes accounts and download the app
Ok I created the Meraki setup, thanks for that advice.
I was able to publish 3 apps in there. The only thing is that the iPads will ask to install and if you click install it still requires an iTunes acct and password. I had to put our corporate acct in there just to get the apps installed and get into the one app I need to configure it.
Now if I go to Settings > iTunes & App stores > click on our corporate iTunes ID and "Sign Out"... what will happen if the app developer releases an update to one of the 3 apps I've installed? Will the end user be able to put in their own iTunes account (they will have created one by then hopefully)?
I just can't keep our corporate iTunes account signed in. What if they try to buy stuff and it will charge our corporate credit card!
