This is a discussion on There's an app update notification, in my app store, for an app I've never bought... within the iPad Apps forums, part of the iPad App Store category; Originally Posted by Puddy I've searched everywhere, old apps that could have been renamed.

By chance do you have your restrictions on?
Also, not sure if you have done the immediate fixes--like a restart and a reset?
...restart the iPad by pressing the power switch down to power off.
...reset by holding the power switch and home button together until you see the apple logo. Hope that helps!
My restrictions are not enabled. I have reset and restarted my iPod recently and it still has the notification showing.Originally Posted by skimonkey
I have the same problem and have already done the advised actions in the above postings.
The thread seems to have just stopped, was there a resolution?
For me the worst part is that there were several updates in my listing and I did not see the MotionX. Even though it had never been previously installed on my iPad, the system installed MotionX and I got charged for it!
As I only have a wifi iPad the app is of no use to me.
It still shows up in my updates and if run installs the app again, which I instantly remove!!
Sorry there was no solution, I'm stuck with this update in my App Store even tho I don't have the app, and never had the app. You'd think there would be a way to delete updates. Frustrating, and im surprised no one here had any useful info about it, we can't be the only ones? Perhaps if I jail break it there's a way to get rid of that notification?Originally Posted by Sebyte
Unfortunately, sometimes a solution can't be found among the members. The only thing I can recommend is to take your iPad to the Apple Store and see if they can assist you in resolving this problem.
I think we've reached our maximum helpfulness here. Sorry.
Hey there Puddy....I don't see anywhere in the thread about what happens if you try to update the phantom app. Have you tried that?Originally Posted by Puddy

Hi Roy Rob, It says, " you cannot update this software since you have not owned the major version of this software" which is true, so how it ended up in my app update list baffles me.Originally Posted by Roy Rob
Connect your ipad to computer and then see all the list of purchases.If that app is not there then I consult you take it to apple store.
