    so like the title says... today i downloaded the google mobile app from the itunes store so it is the most current one. but when i check for updates on the iphone its says there is one for google mobile app (which looks like a previous version, the one in my itunes library is a newer number) but when the info screen comes up it says installed and is greyed out so i can't hit the button. i tried restarting the phone, deleting the app everywhere and re-downloading it
    but the stupid little '1 in a red circle' is on the app store icon. how can i get it to go away?

    I'm having the same problem myself. Happened before with other apps - I just removed them and forgot about it.

    i had the same recently with an app i didnt want to delete cause i use it all the time. after 2 days the update disappeared when i had more updated from other apps. weird but as long as it disappears just like that i dont mind
