I don't want a popup telling me when my apps can be updated. Any ready to get rid of these without jailbreaking?

I wouldn't mind getting rid of the badge, too. But I find it less annoying than the popup.

I never get popups! I didn't even know you could get popups! Did you check the Notification Center settings? – duci9y Apr 6 '13 at 16:48
Do you ALWAYS get this popups or only on certain apps? I do have only ONE app that throws a popup/push notification when there's a update available. This is an app setting and not related to the app store prefs. – cyphorious Apr 6 '13 at 17:12
no clue where it came from. It just said that 3 app store updates were available. I never enable push notifications in any of my apps. – William Jockusch Apr 6 '13 at 17:31
