[PlayBook] Sort-order of "MyWorld", "Update all" and notifications

One of the things that bugs me when using the App World on my PlayBook is the fact, that when the "My World" tab features updates, I have to scoll through the whole list to see which Apps got updates and apply them.

Would be much better if they were on top of the list just like on Android 2.2+ devices because it's much usable interface.

Also, an "Update all" button is missing. Because there are no automatic notifications that tell you (without opening the App World App) that there new updates available, it's possible that you only check for updates once a week or less frequent. Then when you check, there are so many updates that clicking those update-buttons makes you angry (or at least annoyed Smiley Wink.

 

So three things an update of the App World on the PlayBook should cover:

1) display Apps in My World that got updated on top of the list,

2) check for updates in the background and notify the user via notifications and

3) add an "Update all" button to click one instead of ten buttons.

1. is implemented in latest Tablet OS, so is 2.
Now only my third suggestion remains Smiley Wink

Did anyone think about the update all button?
It's still missing in OS 2 but after just having to approve some updates, it continues to be one of the things that would be nice to have Smiley Wink
