    I tried to check for updates on iTunes on my Mac (latest version of course) and it says there aren't any. But checking Appshopper I could see there were at least 1 or 2. So, checking on my Touch, sure enough it lists 3. This happened a couple of days ago too.
    Anyone else? Thought I'd post it incase someone is a regular checker with iTunes only and think they haven't got any when in fact they may have.

    Ya, this is a known problem, i just updated 10 of my apps from my computer because they didnt show on my ipod. I just stick to updating from the computer for now, just because its been more reliable for me.

    I just downloaded 6 updates like 10 minutes ago from iTunes. But I'm in America, so you know, we're better than regular people. Never had the problem you're referring to so far this year. Go 2009!
     
  4. You misunderstood- perhaps I didn't make myself clear enough. I meant iTunes on my Mac is showing no updates when my Touch does. I edited my post to be clearer.
     
  5. You are right EDNG, you are irregular indeed. :p

    I had this problem in December. I knew I had updates to download. Including that Kinwits update that I am never going to download... Yet iTunes told me there were no updates. This was just before Christmas and it took about a week until iTunes recognised I had updates there and by that time I had over 40 to download (I have 500 or so apps in my iTunes). In the past I've had problems downloading updates (received error messages) around the times Apple have made small adjustments (updates to the App Store layout, release of new firmware, etc). In the end I put it down to a decision by Apple to restrict downloading of updates over Christmas. Not because there were no new updates waiting for me (because there were) but perhaps an attempt to ease pressure on their servers over the busy Christmas period. I don't know for certain that this is the reason, it's just a guess based on the timing of previous problems I have experienced. Maybe this means Apple are updating something on the App Store or with their servers? Of course you could alert them to the problem you are having. But then again I've done so in the past and never had a response from them.
     
  7. Yes I think response from Apple regarding issues like this is a rarity. Thank Snow Mani (won't call you 'dude' ;) )

    No worries! Of course it might always end up being a serious issue and not just an Apple caused problem.

    PS - I should also mention that I'm happy you didn't call me 'dudette' either(shudders)

    Wow. That was pure failure, even for you. Is that you Herp(es) posing as yuyu? Also, don't double-post. See you later dudes (snow_mani fails too)...

    What? I secretly hacked yuthe's account? And now I'm posting with it? And I didn't even know it?

    This must be....
