    While I did see that and I like that feature, some updates end up not being updates at all so it's nice to update it at my pleasure, unless this app comes with a way to downgrade app versions.

    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.

    I know the feeling... Don't forget all the reminders that haven't been checked off! Lol

    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
