I'd assumed for ages that I got updates to all my current apps by clicking on "1 update", "2 updates" at the foot of the Marketplace homepage as and when I chose to visit Marketplace. Not sure why, but I had assumed that this was a standard mandated by the OS.
But the updated Twitter app wasn't showing as an update on my Marketplace homepage. And I was still stuck on an old version. Strange. So I wondered whether I should try reinstalling it, searched and clicked through to Twitter within the marketplace and instead of the [Install] button there was an [Update] button. I chose update and hey presto have the new version.
So my question is, is the "2 updates" etc on the Marketplace unreliable? Do only some apps update that way? Is it normal for other apps (like Twitter) to require you to go the long way around? Maybe some auto update? Maybe other apps do something else?
Or maybe Twitter was going to show up eventually as a marketplace homepage update, I was just too impatient. Is that possible?
How in general do I update an app?
