You’ll Never Have To Update Your iOS Apps Again Thanks To This Jailbreak Tweak

Updating your apps on iOS isn’t hard, but for some reason, I suck at remembering to. There are always about nine update notifications waiting for me in the App Store, and I always think I’ll get around to it in a minute, but never do.

One of the best new reasons to jailbreak though, is an app called Auto App Updater. Like its name says, the app makes it so you never have to think about updating your apps on your iPhone or iPad again.

With Auto App Updater you can set your schedule on how frequently apps should update (the interval options are 30min, 1 hour, 2 hours, 3 hours, 6 hours, 12 hours, and 24 hours), and Auto App Updater will download the app updates in the background whenever they’re available.

Everything is controlled from your Settings app, so you don’t add an extra app icon to your screen, and you never have to worry about it again once it’s been setup.

Auto App Updater is available in Cydia right now for $2.99, which seems a bit steep for a simple app, but when you think of how much time you’ll save, it might be worth it.

    I bet your car is a mess and you wouldn’t have any kind of backups if it wasn’t for Time Machine either. Am I right? How is it a chore to press ‘update’ if you see a notification? I for one like reading what the new features are, or what was fixed.

    Maybe it’s just me but I check for updates all time time. I enjoy speculating about changes then reading the update notes
