This probably has been discussed before, but why does the Xposed installer app only check for updates for installed modules when manually opening the app? And if it's continuously checking then why doesn't it notify me when there's an update.. Sorry for bothering especially if someone's asked about it before.

Because update checks generate traffic, both on the server side (more than 1 TB in June!) and on your data plan. I have made some changes in 2.7 experimental1 to reduce the traffic (by introducing delta repository index updates, but still, it's significant. Background checking should probably have a WiFi-only setting, you might want to repeat missed checks once you connect to WiFi the next time, it would require wakeups/alarms etc.

So on the one hand, it's a matter of traffic, on the other hand a matter of effort for the implementation. I'm not saying that it won't be coming some days, but probably not in the near future.

It's not checking continously for the reasons mentioned above.

Update update checks and notifications would be nice.
To save traffic, just place the .xml with module names and version somewhere, eg github

Implementation is easy:
Catch "boot" event, set a timer to eg 4 hours.
In the timer
- check version
- notification if new versions
- set it again to 4 hours
Done

I just started (and loving) xposed ; what do you do inside the installer to have it check for module updates? When i open it I see no option for this. Is it completely automatic each time you open the installer?
