no push app world notifications
Several of my apps have had recent upgrades but no app world notification was pushed to the home screen of the phone. I had to go into app world, then my world to see the upgrades. Anyone else experiencing this? I have the latest version of app world.

for me, they always show up in my notifications after a reboot. I will reboot from time to time just to see if there are any updates. this could be considered the lazy way (compared to going into app world as you described).Z10 running 10.1.0.2009 leak. Playbook running official OS (sigh).

It will eventually get a notification but we all know they're updated right away through Crackberry. I've seen comments that they don't send out an upgrade notification all at once to avoid a rush of people trying to download at once. Otherwise they show up if you refresh the list often times. Doing an alt r s t refreshes if you haven't upgraded the app world app to a newer version also.

I get notifications for the ones I have downloaded and installed. I don't see update notices until going to My World for ones like BB podcasts and bb protect which I have not yet activated. It may be carrier related.

I wondered why I'd had no update notifications for any of my apps but when I went into My World today I was informed of 5 updates available. Like others I used to get the notification pushed to me but now it seems I had to go to App World -> My world and check manually

This happened to me with the Evernote app. I used the feedback tool to contact the devs. A couple of mornings later (after an overnight reboot), I had an email from the devs as well as an App World notification
It's probably a region/carrier thing...

I just found the timing of both occurrences (email and notification) interesting. Anyways, here's what the Evernote team had to say for their specific app, maybe it applies to App World in general:
This may have happened if you were attempting to download from Blackberry App World, and that this has failed, and is now is a "stuck" mode, or if App World does not detect your phone as a compatible device.

So I went to Betazone because I remember I was running a beta, and sure enough, the newer AppWorld is available to download to fix notifiction problems. Of course, I was never notified cause I was running the problem one! LMAO.
So the newest AppWorld is 22.214.171.124 and available here

I think RIM servers takes time to push the update to our notification area to reduce network load. They probably doing selective push; batch of users at a time. But, we can always get the updates by going to My World and refreshing the app list.

Umm yeah no. It doesn't work that way for me. When I refresh with my World open I don't see any notifications. I have to open each app individually to see which has an update. Like where you see delete or reinstall? That's where it shows me the update. Annoying to have to open each app to find out.

I don't get App World notifications pushed with the new version of App World either. I have to manually go into it and check for upgrades.
For me it seems to be hit or miss depending on what the app is..this has been true on various versions of app world. I haven't gotten a push app world notification since December and clearly i've updated some of my apps since then. I've upgraded to the newest version of app world so we'll see what happens.
