App Store still shows update badge

A couple of days ago, App Store showed I had three apps to update. So, I tapped Update All. Two apps updated normally. The third app's button kept reverting from the download circle back to the Update button. I've had this happen before when updating apps, so I just kept tapping Update until it finally started downloading. The app updated and runs fine.

However, App Store still wears a badge showing I have one update available.

I've tried rebooting the iPad acouple of times. I've also tried a couple of tricks I found online, but nothing will remove the update badge.

Anyone know a fix for this? Delete the app, reboot, then download the app again?

That's probably the only solution that will work. Not exactly elegant, especially if you have app data that you'd like to retain.

IT one of the most annoying thins in my device too. Can't get those red bubbles go off. Some of them I event can't update at all, so it just hangs there forever and annoys me even more.
