No App Updates On Notification Bar Only Facebook


No App Updates On Notification Bar Only Facebook

Don't know if this is how the S4 works, but I upgraded last month. Before I upgraded, I owned the S3. The issue I'm having is that I can't figure out why app update notifications aren't showing up on notification bar when apps need to be updated. The only time notifications pop up is when I log onto the Facebook app which is very annoying! I don't want to auto update in Playstore because there are apps I don't want updated, and don't want on my phone. My S3 didn't do that. I spoke with a Sprint tech on the phone earlier today, and he said the S4 does that because it's a different phone, and he also said Facebook app while logging on will bring up all the app notifications in one batch. He also said the only time I'll get notifications normally is when there is a system update, and Sprint Zone app. Anyone else having this same issue? If not, please tell me what I need to do. I just hate Facebook running my app notifications!

We're here to help. The S4 should still be able to give you notifications when apps have available updates. Go to the play store and tap settings you should have the option to turn notifications on. Let us know if that works.
