anyone else have probs updated certain games

i have had 3 games now that, when an update is available, i have to update it like 3 to 4 times..

right now im having problems updating 'hook champ'...

everytime i update it looks like its doing fine...

then when i check for updated games a few days later, i get the same thing that 'hook champ' needs to be updated again..

today i have done it 3 times..

the previous game before this was 'adventure jones'. it finally 'stayed' after 4 times of doing it..

anyone else have this problem, and is there a way to fix it? i looked at the games and it's always the same version...

I have had this problem for a couple of weeks now. Sometimes it takes one update and other times it may take three or four. I am not really sure what the problem is.

That just started happening to me these past few weeks, too. It gets REALLY annoying and I don't know why some games need several updates. Anyone know why this is happening and how to stop it?

I've downloaded the update for 33rd Division multiple times, but it's still in my list. The update however was applied. Weird.

App Updates repeating

Yeah, it's a quirky iPod/iPhone glitch of sorts. The update is almost always applied the first time around, but it continues to ask for it afterwards. If you can ignore the little red number on your screen, then no worries. It will eventually go away with time.

At least it's better than when iPhone OS 2.0 came out, back when the store had just opened. I actually had one application update fail on me and proceed to thoroughly brick my phone. I had to get a new one from Apple.
