    I'm sure somebody probably posted about this before, or maybe not, but I didn't know which keywords to use when searching for it.

    Anywho, how come I'm always finding updates in the AppStore on my Touch that I've already downloaded? Is this common? Sometimes I'll have 17 new updates dated as far back as January, then when I close the AppStore and reopen, they are gone. Is there an resolve to this?

    Just out of curiosity do you have all 9 pages filled up on your I-touch too?

    I've been seeing this more often lately. I think this maybe related to having more than 9 screen full of apps.

    No, at the moment I have 9 pages but not full, but this has happened even with 4 or 5 pages.

    Well atleast I'm not the only one.

    I've been having issues with these false updates too. Lately on my Touch it will say 12+ updates or on iTunes as well and they do have the update button on them all (on iTunes) but I know they are all previously downloaded updates. Noticed some with pending updates will have an icon but without an update button till its ready to be downloaded but will show up prior to this when downloading other updates.
    Recommend you don't download any that you've already updated previously because I decided to download an already previously updated game once to see what happens. Game was my Low Gravity Racer and it wiped out all my previous races and was just like a newly downloaded game.
    My only solution is to close out of my applications window on iTunes and reopen. Sometimes it takes a few times to get it to refresh to a clean slate or to have the real update games stay only. I close out completely on Touch and might take a few times to do as well.
    Man.....iTunes needs to be revamped bad.

    I have the same problem and more than that, my iTunes refuses to update any of my apps. It keeps telling me that there are no updates. So Im forced to update using my iPhone (which keeps giving me old updates). Its a vicious cycle!

    i have a similar, but different problem. Let's say I am out and about, and I see an update available. I decide to not update because I am not on the Wifi network. Once I get home and want to update, I go back to the app store, tap on the update icon, wait for a few seconds, and it will tell me that all my apps are updated. I know there are updates, but it is not letting me. I have to wait for a day or so for the updates will show back up again before I can update. It is not a major deal, but just annoying.

    I see the old updates too but they say already installed so I don't have to reinstall them. It is annoying because it would be nice to actually get a NEW update red indicator instead one for old ones.

    I have the same prob. Occasionally, it will want to update to old versions of random apps. A reboot seems to fix this problem right away. I only have 5 pages of stuff btw.
