Am I missing something?

[ Edited ]

I have seen for a about a week now that when going into the App World, there is a little red star in there corner which indicates a update on one of my apps.


When I go into the actual apps there is no update. I have also tried to click on the 'Check for updates' on the right hand panel but still now joy.

Re: Am I missing something?


No, you are not missing anything. This seems to be quite predominant...some call it the "phantom splat". Fortunately, it only displays when you actually enter AW, and even then only after you navigate deeper. We are all hoping that future updates to AW will cure this.

Good luck!
