AppUpdateNotifier: Jailbreak Tweak Enables Notifications For iOS App Updates

Do you want to be notified when there is an update available for your favorite iOS app or game in the App Store?

AppUpdateNotifier as the name suggests is the jailbreak tweak that does just that. It enables notifications for iOS app updates.

After installing the jailbreak tweak you will receive notifications whenever there is an update available for your favorite app or game. It is deeply integrated with iOS 5 notification system, so you will receive banner notifications, notifications on the lock screen and also access them via iOS Notification Center.

You can configure AppUpdateNotifier to check for updates hourly, daily, weekly or monthly. You can also add certain apps to the Ignore list if you don’t want to receive update notifications for those apps.

AppUpdateNotifier is a nifty little jailbreak tweak, which adds functionality to the App Store app that ideally should have been available in the App Store app.

    Great idea, I can see Apple implementing this feature soon.

    I’m more in interested in knowing when the release of the Cydia tweak “Aptdate” will occur. It was originally speculated to be released several days ago. Now, one doesn’t here a word (m.i.a.) on it. 🙁

    Nice, but not worth $1.50.

    But does it have to have that god awful thing
    In the notification center? It’s huge. Takes up a lot of room and looks like it needs to be in there at all times. Or am I wrong.
