    Hi,
    I am happy with a specific version of an App and don't want to get informed that an update is available. So I want to hide it from the Appstore. Is there an Cydia App for that?
    I already installed PrivaCy but feel there is still to much data sent...
    Thanks in advance!

    You're only being informed that an update is available. No one is forcing you to take it.

    Yup but like the OP I hate the little red number on the icon telling me there is an update available, I wool like to make that go away. Is there a way to make the number go away ?

    I found a solution!
    If the metadata (iTunesMetadata.plist) is removed, the App is invisible for the Appstore.

    this isnt an odd request at all. i have an update for a game that is huge, and my ipad is telling me there isnt enough space to install it. the update makes the game work on an older version of ios that doesnt apply to me, and it has bug fixes for non-english versions. i dont need or want it. i will have to either uninstall the game which i dont want to do (i like it) or remove movies or games to allow enough space to install the update. i just want to hide it.

    so, it's most definitely not an odd request at all. it's a reasonable and useful request. just sayin

    sometimes there's no reason to update if everything's fine the way you have. updating just for the sake of updating can cause more problems than fixes. i wait a few days before updating anything and read the reviews.

    plus, for some reason, i sometimes can't update just single apps i end up having to do an update all for it to work.
