I have always had automatic downloads of updates in the App Store turned off. The reason is that I want to see what's new when an app is updated, and with automatic downloads I miss that information. I know it's there, but I just don't read it.
Another thing I've been doing is having apps installed that I never use, just to follow updates in the App Store. Sometimes, a new feature is added that makes me want to start using it. As a result, I have quite a few unused apps on my phone.
Starting today, I can turn on automatic downloads and still keep track of updates. The new Watch Updates feature in Lookmark 2.4 tracks updates and sends a notification when a new version arrives. It requires a Lookmark Plus subscription, and it works for both iOS and Mac Apps.
New in Lookmark 2.4
- Track app updates (requires Lookmark Plus)
- Rich notifications.
- iOS 11 and iPhone X support.
Please consider a Lookmark Plus subscription if you are interested in monitoring updates and/or price changes for iOS and Mac apps. Or if you just want to support the development of the free features in Lookmark :)
