We have Windows 8 pro PC and use various apps, Metro apps, that we have download from Microsoft Store, for example OneNote.

Using the OneNote example, we use this apps and also have it in our iPhone; both get sync as usual.

We have noticed that in our iPhone the Apple Store will display a message that an update is available.  Using the OneNote example, we have not seen at any time the OneNote download from Microsoft Store display this message of update.

Do we have to do something in the Microsoft Store to get update?
How can update our download MS Store apps?
We have open searched OneNote in MS Store and we can't find what is the latest version; how can know what version is in the MS Store?

For the most part, Store Apps update themselves. You can do this:  Open the Store, swipe or mouse to the right so that you can see the settings Icon. Open Settings and in there, choose Update Apps. If any need to be updated, they will be updated at this time.

Open Action Center, Maintenance and run Reliability Monitor. Successful store updates will show up here by day and text at the bottom.

Microsoft has used both Reliability Monitor and Reliability History and even I get myself twisted. Happy to help.
