  • Hey IDB family I need some assistance. After reading there are updates for the iWork applications, I went to my Appstore and this is what I got. Nothing will come on, I can’t even check the Featured and the other sections.
    Thank you in advance.

      Try right-clicking the App Store icon in the dock and then “Quit”. Try opening the app again and then click “Updates”

    How do automatic updates work on OS X? Whenever I hear of updates from iDB I check the Mac AppStore and 9/10 the update shows and has not been downloaded so I have to nearly always manually click the update button in the AppStore as opposed to forgetting about updates and letting the AppStore take care of it automatically for me…

    My Keynote app disappeared after updating. Rebooted and still missing, launching App Store and looking up Keynote shows “Open” but nothing happens. Jailbroken iPhone 5s on iOS 7.0.4

      Nevermind, it just randomnly came back out of nowhere. Thought it was a bug.
