iPad mini: If I sign out - will the apps stay behind?

Okay -- here goes!

Bought my dad an iPad mini for Christmas.
I want to put apps on it for him, including paid ones.
If I set up the iPad mini with my details and buy some apps, will they disappear when I sign out and he signs in with his?

Hopefully that'll make sense to someone here lol!

Not checked but I would say no.

Yeah, the apps will still be there.

Presumably they wouldn't be able update though and would be tied to the initial account?

Yes, they will stay, but no updates! And buckups may be iffy, too - if he is online while doing it. Why don't you set up an account for him with some free email account? He can later change the credit card details.

I was assuming from the wording that the dad already has an account, so wouldn't want a new one.

Logged out of my ipod checking this earlier and forgot my log in. Oops.
