I know this is hardly a "to the trenches!" type of problem but hear me out lol :p

I know that the little blue dot in front of an app's name indicate that it's been updated. However, this morning I had two app's that needed to be updated in the App Store so I clicked "Update All". After both finished updating I closed the App Store but only one of the apps had the blue dot in front of the name. I verified and both apps did actually update. Is this just a bug or is there an actual reason only one app had the blue dot? Has anyone else seen this from time-to-time :)

I think some apps just don’t indicate the blue dot. The NHL app never has shown the update dot and I’ve been using it for years over several iOS versions and devices...

Could be. I'm pretty sure that the app that didn't show the blue dot for me this morning had shown it before though, but then again I wasn't really paying that close attention before so I could be mistaken.

I also could be wrong as the NHL app is the only one of mine that doesn’t show the dot when updated..

In my case it's the Gmail app. I'm 99% pretty sure I've seen it with the blue dot before. Very weird.
