    I've been reading about app updates in here yet I haven't received a single notifications from the store or store tile. I just checked Nokia maps in the store and there indeed was an update. If the auto update notifications aren't going to work, shouldn't there at least be a way to manually check for updates? Jeez...

    Usually if you go to the marketplace, go to the app you're thinking of that should have an update(ie nokia maps) and then back to the list and then back to the app it usually shows the update. Your data may just not be updating it... I just went to my apps list after not using my phone for a while and I had 3 updates. Maps, myATT, extras+info ...

    updates work fine for me. Every time there is an update my store tile tells me.

    The thing to remember is that, more often than not, these update notifications 'roll out' to different areas at different times. Just because someone says that there is an update doesn't mean that you'll be notified right then and there. It cycles... the store periodically checks if there is an update. Someone's phone may have checked at a different time than yours did and saw an update. I'd be willing to bet taht within the next 30 minutes you'd be notified of those updates too.

    I still haven't received that extras and info update and I see no way of getting to it through the store.

    Definitely seems to be hit or miss regarding these updates.

    Has your wife recently reset her phone?

    I could uunderstand this if it was consistent. On WP 7, I remember not being aware for weeks that certain apps had updates until I backtracked WPCentral articles and discovered so. My phone at times would decide it didn't want to send out notifications.

    No it doesn't

    I don't get notified of updates, for example Nokia Maps.. Store didn't tell me there was an update until I went into Nokia Maps..

    Same issue here. I am getting all the update notifications on my 810 but my wife is not on her 810. I went through and manually 'discovered' the updates. But as was brought out, I cannot find the extra+info in the store. Very frustrating!

    I haven't seen app updates for the past week or so. Fortunately, I get all my notifications about new app updates from WPCentral and their helpful direct links.

    I've been getting a phantom update. The store will have a 1 on the live tile but when I go into the store there are no updates. It will happen several times a day.

    Is it set to automatically download the update for you?

    I don't think so. I get other real updates from time to time. I do have a weather app that never downloaded correctly that's grayed out in the app list that I can't delete. I might try a hard reset.

    App updates are sometimes delayed, and it has been this way since NoDo days. I often won't get the live tile for an update until late in the same day that the update has been announced.

    My Store isn't giving notifications either.....
    I've had to force updates on my 920 after needing to do a hard reset, Is this reset the cause of the problems? So do I need to do a reflash to get things working again?

    Yes, something IS wrong! Here are the answers I got during a chat with a Microsoft tech agent:

    "If i understand right, you're needing help with your application updates? Definitely a known issue with the series 8 at this point. The Live Tiles on your device will prompt you for an update if you go to the store manually, but at this point the rollout fix is planned just not available as of yet. Found that you're not the only one having this issue as of late. 7.5's still update just fine, just not the 8's. I'll add your account as one of the known issues with it and ultimately as soon as an over-the-air update occurs for the device, it should resolve your issue. They're estimating mid January still, but again that's just an estimate."
