Is there a way to be notified when a new version of an application is published to the app store?

I don't mean the general notification on the app store when opened. I would like to get an email or equivalent as soon as a new version is published in the app store. I need to track the version available in the app store for several applications at once.

  • why not use the app store's banner? it shows a red dot if one is available. – ankii Feb 24 at 14:08

No, there's no way to do this from the App Store. Developers do not have access to any Apple API to notify users when a new version is available within the App Store.

Developers can notify users within their own app that a new version is available. For example, I have several apps that send me a popup message about a new version but I must open an older version of that app first, before I can see the notification.
