    I admit, I'm obsessed. I usually check 3-4 times per day. :(

    You guys?

    Maybe two-three times, at least once a day though.

    At least daily.

    I'm always amazed when people don't update periodically. I have a friend whom has yet to update any apps. That red badge on iTunes store of 56 would drive me a wee bit nuts.

    On average probably twice a day. Usually some random time during the first half of the day and then again in the evening...That seems to be when the updates are released.

    Usually I don't check for updates at all, unless I see something posted on here about one.

    I check 3-4 times daily. I literally flip out when I see that red badge appear. Isn't it great? :D

    I update maybe once a week, unless the red badge starts to get annoying.

    I hate the red badges on anything so I always try to avoid them, I also love being up to date so when I finished checking my Facebook and everything else I check for updates, this happens at least 3 times a day...I am quite obsessed...:D

    I don't. I wait until I plug it into iTunes and iTunes shows that there are updates. I really wish there was a way to read the update description in iTunes.

    About 2x a day. Usually in the morning when I unplug the phone and at night when I plug it back in.:)

    More times than any sane person should. I want to get rid of all these pixelated icons.
