New app updates are coming in every day. Many support multitasking and/or iAds. If the old ones work fine in iOS 4, I have no interest in updating. But the App store will continually put up alert badges and I'd like to have a way to have the App store ignore updates for certain apps. Is there a way to do this? I'm guessing no, but any help would be appreciated.

    If your thinking about putting the badges out, no.
    but if you don't wanna update, just click the apps in the update section and it'll give you a option "UPDATE" or something where it usually says "FREE" "BUY" "1.99" etc u know what i mean.
    you don't have to press "UPDATE ALL"

    Looking for exactly same thing: HOW TO IGNORE UPDATES FROM CERTAIN APPS SO THEY DON'T GET IN THE WAY OF "UPDATE ALL" FEATURE? I do not wish to see an update badge for some items.

    I know of no way to do this.

    You can leave feedback for Apple at:

    This is a user forum. Apple will not "hear our weeps" here.

    Gratis for the link, it is however a forum frequented by "Apple people" that I have come across in the past.
    On the other thought there is enough technology and computing power around these dyas to "crawl" boards and pick up aggregated summaries of issues, so it would be smart thing to do.
