    Hi guys,

    Hope you like the link bait title for this one. I was having an issue where the app store was no longer telling me when apps were ready for updating. It had been 2 weeks without a whisper from my phone. So I began looking through the forums, sadly at the time there was no solution that worked, and I was having to manually search for and then update each one. The WPCentral app helped when the big apps were updating, but they were missing the odd update too. Which is fair enough, the store is spilling with content at the moment, who can keep up?

    A simple solution appeared on this support thread on the weekend.

    Windows Phone 8 store not showing app updates on live tile - Microsoft Community

    Basically, choose your Hotmail/outlook account attached to your store. Then change the "Frequency of Updates", I had mine set at every 30 minutes, I dropped it to 15. Then, turn your phone off and on (No soft reset required).

    Brilliant!

    Hopefully the Windows Phone team fix this with the next version, but this is by far the easiest solution I have read and it worked fine for me. Can anyone else verify?

    thanks :)
    but one cal also use a free app called sysapppusher to manually check for app updates
    windows phone 8.1 store will get many new features like check apps for update (no more waiting ) , auto update of apps on Wi-Fi :)

    I don't get it. What frequency should I change? The updates of my mail account??
    I mean, I have no problems with updates, but I would like to know.

    And I don't like sysapppushrr. I want my store updates to work. Done.

    This is really confusing me! As long as you don't reply and explain what exactly you mean, I think it's an April fool.

    Yes I know, that's what I said as well!

    But when I had problems, I changed that as well, because I always do it when I don't expect/want many mails (weekend). But still it didn't help.
    So I really think this is not a solution. And logically...why should it be? Store checks ONCE a day, always at the same time! Changing the mail would make no sense....
    But please, proof me wrong!

    My solution btw was: remove phone from windowsphone.com and do hard reset. That's annoying but it works. Forever!
    All these other tips I tries as well, changing time zone, unpin, aodt reset, delete temp files, blabla...fixed it maybe for few days... But not longer
