    By chance, do you have your restrictions on? That may also be hiding an app.

    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.

    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!!

    Any suggestions?

    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?

    There's an app update notification, in my app store, for an app I've never bought...

    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?

    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.
