How do I prevent a deleted app from appearing on my update screen and appearing a number on the App Store icon?

Deleted apps should not be appearing on the Updates tab. Have you tried restarting your device?

You know... I've always wondered that too and just never asked. Glad you did. And I have restarted my device.

Mine is in iTunes. You know when you hook your phone up? Go to the apps tab. It'll show me tons of updates - a very good amount of apps that I deleted via my phone. I'd love to fix this if someone can tell me how.

When you delete them from your phone they aren't really deleted from iTunes. PITA, I know. What I've done is use the main apps list in iTunes and right click on the app and select delete from there.

Strange how it will delete from your phone, sync & all but not actually remove it from iTunes.

I'll try deleting from iTunes but I get the update appearing on my phone after I've deleted the app on the phone.

I know this is gonna sound stupid, but I've done that numerous times in iTunes too and they just show back up the next time I hook my phone up. You can obviously imagine the list of apps I've got.
