Okay, this problem doesn't really matter that much, but it's just annoying and maybe someone else has the same problem. Whenever I open the App Store on my iPod Touch, it always says that I have 4-7 updates available for 4-7 applications that I recently updated. The "updates" that show up are ones I've already installed, and when I click on them they usually say INSTALLED but sometimes they let me install it again. I did it once and I just reinstalled the update. Whenever I have a REAL new update, all the bogus ones go away and only the real one shows up. However, its just really annoying. Anyone know what to do?

Don't know what to do, but that would be annoying.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

I have been dealing with the same problem as well. I usually just open the app store again and the "updates" go away.

This has been happening to me too. When I try to install it keeps on installing for quite long without any change. Quite annoying. Have you people tried syncing with itunes in your computer and clicking the option transfer purchases? Once when I did this it went away.

Think I got it, you have to sync it with itunes in your computer and check for available downloads from your computer. I did this and everything was fine again.

I have deleted many apps from my iPhone due to the constant stream of updates. I think it's great that the developers are updating their apps on a regular basis but I'd like the option the say 'no thank you' to another download.

I know it's weird but I just can't stand having those little red numbers on my phone and not be able to remove them without downloading another update. Oh well. Wish this was my biggest problem in life
