Since the other thread was closed... I do have a related and legitimate question about that subject.
Many moons ago, I downloaded an app from the App Store (Sand Slides -- a fun game if you have not tried it). I got it on one of their early-adopters' "free download for a day" deals. At some point they started putting advertisement banners into the game, which bugged teh hell out of me so I stopped updating to the new version(s). The game works just fine on my iPad as it is, thankyouverymuch.
So, to make a long story short, I have no interest in upgrading to a new version of an app I legitimately own, but of course it keeps showing up in my update list, and I am sure that at some point in time I will not pay attention and either press the "Update All" button or press the wrong "Free" button and get something I don't want. So is there a way to keep the app on the iPad but not have the update show up in the update notification list?
