    Default Not Getting App Updates

    I know for a fact some of my apps have updates, but when I go to the google play store they don't show and there's no option to update. Any ideas?

    You used to be able to enter *#*#2432546#*#* from the dialer and it would force a checkin to the playstore to see if any of your apps needed updates, however I just tried this on my Galaxy S3 running JB and it didn't work.

    How long has it been? Your device is *supposed* to "check in" for updated app versions at least once every 24 hours.

    That happened to me once. You can update from the website after logging in and going to 'my apps.' All the ones that need updating should be first in the list.

    Once I did this online, future updates were pushed on the phone like they should be

    Then I guess it'll never update then as Google doesn't even know you have it? Maybe search for online and install it from the website, thus resetting the 'knowledge' that the app is actually on your phone?

    Has anyone just tried the "Check for updates" in the playstore menu? Seems like about what we need it to be.
