    Does anyone know the mystery of how the phone checks the store for updates? For instance, how often does it check and is there a way to trigger a check for all apps instead of one at a time? I've seen it pick up on updates that are sometimes a week old.

    They way it's designed now is rather stubborn and mysterious. I don't understand why there isn't a manual option in the store to check for updates.
