SOLVED: Apps on Android Keep Re-updating Over and Over

October 11th, 2011 by steve

Recently, I noted that some apps on my Android were requiring updates a lot. At first I thought, “Wow — these developers are busy. But then I noted that the size of the update was the same each time. Exactly the same.

So I poked around and did some experimenting and found the solution.

  1. Let the download complete.
  2. From the Home Screen, select Menu / Settings / Applications/ Manage Applications /All
  3. Select the “Download Manager”
  4. Select “Clear data”

This solved my problem of some applications needing to update every day or every restart.
