Check for Application Updates [webOS 1.x]

This tip is only for devices running webOS 1.x

Want to make sure you have the latest version of your favorite applications? Instead of searching one-by-one to find updates in the App Catalog, it's really easy to upgrade all your apps at once by following a few simple steps:

There are two ways to do it. One is to just hit the Updates app and refresh - if there are app updates, it will alert you and open up the App Catalog. Chances are, though, that you're in the App Catalog much more often, so there's a convenient way to do it there too.


  1. App Catalog front page Open the App Catalog
  2. On the main page, click on the Shopping Cart icon on the bottom right
  3. If there are any applications with a newer version, an "Install Updates" button will appear on the bottom right of the screen. Just tap that button to install all available updates
  4. If you want to update each app Install Updates individually, or just want to see which apps have an update, you can scroll through the list and look for the green down arrow and new version number on the right of the screen. To install the update immediately, tap that button.  Or, you can click on the name of the app to bring up the App Description page and then click the "Update Available" button.
