2.2.1 games update problem

Guys, I have a problem: after i've upgraded to 2.2.1, very often the app store shows updates which I've already updated. That gets on my nerves Someone know how to remove them?

yeah and sometimes it will try to install old versions of the games

it's pretty ridiculous

apple doesn't even seem to test their software before it's released

same problem here. the only workaround that I know of is by exiting the app store and enter it again. most of the time the update count will dissapear and you'll get the all apps are up-to-date message when you click on the updates tab. besides, having a lot of apps installed gives me an edge. Most of the time when the glitch happens, the update count will rise up to about 5-10 (depending on how many apps you have installed on your device), I only give notice when the count is on 1 or 2.
