    bump

    Did you figure out how? Mine is showing the same, even when it says I'm up to date on updates.

    Thanks!

    At the bottom of the Apps screen (when iTunes is open) there's a link to check for updates which will show you which apps have updates. I usually go to the App page to see what the updates are, then click on buy (you won't be charged again, updates are free), sign in and they download.

    Watch out, the new terms of sale now have something about updates not always being free - it depends on the app vendor.

    Can you tell me where you found the terms of sale saying upgrades might not be free?

    I found the App Store Terms and Conditions & I couldn't find anything about that. A link would be appreciated.

    Thanks!

    I looked at it again. They are free if you redownload to your PC, but not free if you download wirelessly on the iPhone.

    Hi Superman.

    If you mean next to the file name, then the numbers represent the Version Numbers. It hasn't always existed, so I'm not sure when it started. I just watched my latest downloads and that is what is occurring. In some instances, the Developers have also place a version into the application name.

    If you select an app, right click & select "Get Info", you'll be able to see the Version number (on Summary), and "where" will show you the path & filename. This will show you how they match. Some Apps don't show the Version (or minor versions) in the app name. To see the name of the app, select the "Info" tab, and the name is in the Name field.
