Updates won't clear after finished?

After updating games that had available updates (minigore, eliminate, etc.) The updates re-appear as if they were never updated. What is going on, and why are they not clearing off?

Any info will be appreciated.

Hey Dylan,

I had this problem too for one of my apps called awesome note. I updated it and it didn't seem like the update processed. Most have updated it five times before it went away. It still shows that red badge on the app store right? I kept on updating mine till it went away. Or just reboot the device

btw, do you just have the bug where the badge won't go away or is the update not working for new content

I have rebooted and the updates have been made. The red badge just does not go away for minigore and eliminate

I've had many games up update then the update still shows available.

But now, Implode!, by IUGO, i've updated 5 times and the actual game isn't updating either.

I've had the same issues as well, not just with games but my quad camera, slo motion app, and others too. I'm using a 3GS and gave the latest update off iTunes so it sounds like a software bug to me. Glad I'm not the only one though. Eventually the badges go away and so do the update description in the app store. I'm sure they'll fix it with the numerous updates they always make.

Thank you and have a nice day. TR

When you are updating the apps in your iDevice directly, they aren't updated in your program folder in iTunes. Go to the folder "programs" or "apps" (dunno whats it called in english) and click on "search for updates" at the end of the page. Connect your iPhone to your computer. Synchronize once. Done.

After that, my automatic update notifications were gone. Hope it helps!
