    Please I have realized despite setting my downloading features on AppStore using my fingerprint ID on my 5S, not all apps can be downloaded using these security feature . I'm just curious to know why some apps can be downloaded with the fingerprint ID and some don't ?

    I think it's timing, the login for the fingerprint scanner seems to stay in the system for only a small time. I think that's why you can't always download an app using that security feature.

    That to me anyway would not sound right since under the setting you can tick on to use your Touch ID to D/L apps from the app store using your fingerprint. It might be the scanner has to be wiped of dirt or anything else on it, Maybe you can consider after setting up your touch ID - RETRAIN it by going over it several times which is said to make it more accurate even though 7.1 was suppose to fix accuracy. There was just an article written my Ally on iMore on the Blog about this very same retraining and seems to work better and so give that a go and see what happens.
