    How do you get it? I checked for updates in the "phone update" part of the settings list but it says my phone already is up to date.

    Just had the update come through.

    I wish Nokia would release a change log of improvements when something is released. I'm always interested to read what these updates do

    How are you able to see what needs to be updated/has an update available without having to search for the specific app in the store?

    my store never prompts me for updates anymore, it used to for a week or two after i got the phone but now it doesn't show me updates unless i go in each app individually in the store and see if there is an update...unfortunately this method makes me miss out on all the nokia updates like sms, display+, network+...anyone else have this issue?

    Mine stopped prompting me as well, about the same time as yours did. Was hoping I wasn't the only one. It really sucks.

    i have a feeling the only way to fix it is to factory reset...trying to hold back on doing that though

    Simple! Just pin the Store app to your front and a number will pop up near the icon whenever there are updates! I love the feature on the official WP Central app as well.

    Before you do that did you have the store app pinned to the start screen?

    No, I had unpinned it almost immediately after receiving my phone. I recall still being able to see what needed to be updated, and also remember there being apps in the store itself listed that needed updating, or maybe I am just getting the phone update and the store mixed up.

    It can take 12 hours or so for the update notification to appear--it really depends on your location and how fresh our news was on the update (sometimes we get the link before anyone gets a notification). Obviously there are only Tile notifications, so without it being pinned, you won't see it (there are no Toast alerts).

    Have you tried powering the phone off/on? There aren't widespread complaints of the Store notifications not working--not considered to be buggy by MS.

    you're not getting it mixed up. The store has a lists of updates at the bottom of the screen that you can download. I got my updates around noon today and I'm in Michigan. Like Mr. Rubino said it could be buggy or you need to just restart the phone. Also, updates could be rolled out in waves but that typically isn't the case.
    Either way I hope your problem gets fixed. And think about repinning the store tile. Its handy at least for me

    I too have been having issues with my Store Live Tile regarding updates.....
    I know there's an update for x App BUT the Live Tile nor does the Store App register there's an update and the only way is to manually search to force update....
    I've done a hard reset to see if that's helped but as of yet still no updates for ANY app, bot just Nokia ones (which I know there's updates for like Drive and Maps)

    This actually made a big difference. I could never get my phone to be as sensitive as others, but now I can use it with my finger through 40 post it notes, and a metal usb flash drive or a water bottle as a stylus! I may be wasting my time.. :P However the consistent function of this has definitely improved over the older version.

    I don't know what they changed, but the screen still doesn't respond to my winter gloves. It does work if I wear a thin pair of gloves, but it was working with those gloves prior to the update.

    I think the super sensitivity on/off setting was broken. If it was off and you turned it on you had to restart your phone until the super sensitivy mode kicked in. Atleast for me.

    Store notifications don't work for me too (5 day old Lumia). I cant find display+touch, extra info in the store search too (maybe my search string is wrong). How do I search for this app in the store ?

    Repinned and then restarted phone, but nothing. Bummer. Maybe it will clear up in a few days.

    I tried manually searching for this as well and got nothing. I am in NJ, but seems like everyone around me has received the update.

    This is one of the few apps you actually cannot search for. All of Nokia's "system" apps can only get update notifications, or you have to find a barcode to scan to get to them.

    Also, if you find them in your windowsphone.com app history, you can look at it on your phone and get it from there.
