    Go into settings, then find my phone and tick "send apps to my phone using push notifications"

    I finally got an app update for audio after a few weeks of having to manually update everything.

    Try it, maybe it will work for you too.

    I didn't even know these options where there. I'll try checking the boxes and see if it helps.

    That's for pushing apps to your phone through windowsphone.com's purchase history, I do it all the time. But if it helps, why not? Does no harm.

    Its actually hurts battery performance a bit so it kinda sucks to have it on to receive updates

    It did for me, that's why I suggested it. ****, if it at least helps some people, that's great. Doesn't hurt to try it if you haven't already. Ya know?

    It's sorta sad that such a workaround is required, simply because the App Store notifications are broken.

    And "wait for a Windows Phone update to fix it" isn't a good answer either, since Microsoft's knuckling under to the carriers means that such an update could take weeks or months to be "certified," while you sit there with a broken phone. Sighhhhh

    They should just make an updates tab that you can check like iOS.
