    Anyone experience problems updating apps where after updating, a day later the same exact update is asking to be downloaded?

    Even says update was successful. Wonder if it is counting against data plan. As to the actual app update, not that sure. Have to look into it further.

    So interesting to see this thread because I was about to post the same topic. Happens to me all the time. I wonder if it is because after the update is released the app developer has a minor tweak he discovers that needs to be made and instead of releasing the tiny tweak in a new version, squeezes in the most recent version, then pushes it out again.

    True. Some developers will update their "what's new" to reflect the reason for multiple updates in a day or 2 but most don't bother.
    Every time I get an update to Tapatalk I can count on at least 1 more that day.

    However it is the same data size. How does that work. I mean mostly it don't matter, but like some game updates are around 20 mbs.

    I've gotten 3 updates to Swiftkey tablet in 2 days, all the same size but with different "what's new" notes on the third.

    Try clearing data on the Google play app, then force closing it...

    You may also try deleting the app and reinstalling it... may be a pain.. but it'll probably correct the issue..
