  • 'Auto App Updater' Updates Your App Store Apps in the Background Automatically


    Many of us have a lot of apps on our iOS devices, and sometimes we are just too busy to keep track of App Store application updates, let alone even worry about installing the updates.

    If youíre one of those people that ends up having tons of App Store application updates at a time, chances are that you might need an assistant for updating your applications for you. This is where a new jailbreak tweak called Auto App Updater by iOS developer noppers comes in.

    Auto App Updater will make sure that all and any App Store application updates get installed for you automatically in the background. The tweak comes with a good number of options to configure so you can set it to your liking:



    Not only can you enable and disable the tweak on demand, but you can set it to look for App Store application updates in timed increments, such as ever 12 hours, to save your battery life. If you have a limited data plan, you can even set the tweak to only auto-update applications over a Wi-Fi network so that you donít burn through your data plan without knowing it.

    In case youíre worried about installing updates for a certain application because future updates have been known to break currently working features, the tweak comes with the ability to disable automatic updates for specific applications, so if you have a previous version of the Facebook application that you think works better than the latest version of the Facebook application, you can disable automatic updates for the Facebook application and updates for Facebook wonít be automatically installed. Other applications are included.

    Another great feature of the tweak is that if an App Store application update fails to download, the tweak will automatically attempt to re-download it again to ensure a seamless transition to the latest version of your applications.

    Auto App Updater keeps a logged history of the applications that you update in the background, including all of the application update release notes that you missed so you can still see what was new in the applications that you didnít get to see before installing. The tweak also keeps a history of the last check for updates, and lets you know when the next scheduled check is. All history can be easily cleared on demand.

    Auto App Updater is available right now in the ModMyi repository Ė if you want smoother updates that require no effort at all on your part, be sure to grab this great new tweak!

      That is an update history log. By then it's too late. Like the other poster said, this app might suit some user's workflow, but I prefer to read the reviews, wait a bit, and then and only then update.

      Yes- you can revert to a previous version of an app if you haven't synced to iTunes since that update, but why would I want an app that puts me at that risk?

      ok, fair enough. but the way you said it:

      made it sound like you always just hit "update all," but that you also like to know what's in the updates.

      Well...all I can say is be careful. This seems like the last thing a jailbreaker would want on his/her phone. Keep in mind that more and more "updates" these days do nothing more than block them from running on Jailbroken phones. Recent "updates" to Xfinity TV Player, NBC app, AirWatch MDM, DirecTV, eTrade, ShowTime Anytime, and NHL GameCenter do nothing other than to block them from running on Jailbroken phones.

      Other "updates" are simply junk. For example, the recent update from Netflix 2 to 3.0 locked out almost all Netflix subscribers for almost 10 days before Netflix got around to fixing it.

      @WillFour20...pullease we need Update Hider for iOS 6!!

      What I like about this Tweak is that it retried downloads if the fail. With the App Store, if a download fails, you have to remove the App completely and reinstall it.

      I'm confused. If password is not requires for updates then why does this tweak pop up Asking for password? In settings I have set to always req pass beaux my son plays on phone.

      Bottom line is if this tweak can't auto input password then it is not an auto updater

      Too expensive for something that takes a few seconds to do by hand....
