AppUpdateNotifier is another new jailbreak tweak that lets you know whenever an update for any application that you might be using becomes available in the Apple Appstore. While this is not something that is extremely novel, still AppUpdateNotifier can prove useful to some people.
Now the concept of AppUpdateNotifier jailbreak tweak is not something new. There have been jailbreak tweaks based on this concept in the past such as CydiaBulletin, and their purpose was to just essentially provide you with notifications whenever an update of any application or a jailbreak tweak was released, and was ready for download.
While there is nothing wrong with the concept, the reason that jailbreak tweaks similar to AppUpdateNotifier failed in the past was because the repositories were nowhere near powerful enough to handle to requests generated by these tweaks to search for updates.
But that limitation does not apply to Apple obviously, as server limitations are the least of concerns of a multibillion Technology Corporation. This is where AppUpdateNotifier is different from the rest as it is build only to query the Apple Appstore and provides update notifications about applications that you have downloaded from the Appstore
AppUpdateNotifier searches for new updates both automatically at user-set time intervals and can also be used manually to query searches. If AppUpdateNotifier finds updates waiting, you will be notified with a notifications banner on your jailbroken iDevice’s homescreen.
AppUpdateNotifier is available in the Cydia store for $1.49. Some of you might not think necessary to purchase this tweak as you can also check for updates manually from the Appstore application on your iPhone, but for those who like keeping a check on updates for their apps, AppUpdateNotifier jailbreak tweak would be a nice addition in their jailbreak tweak collection.
