Is there a way to get notifications when an update to a Windows 8 App is released? From what I can tell the only way to do it, is to open the Store application and look in the top right to see if there are new updates available. But maybe I'm missing something?
If an update is available to any Windows 8 App, the Windows Store Live Tile indicates the same, with a number determining how many Apps have updates available.
So you do not have to actually open Windows Store App to check for updates.
