The Mac app store will always remind you and show the number of updates requires “blue” so that you can immediately download them.

While it’s recommended that you keep your apps up-to-date, there’s a little trick that you might find useful. If you’re happy with an app already and there’s an update to it, make sure you read the changelog for the app before you decide to update. The changelog is the list of changes that the new update includes. This is usually listed in the app description on the App Store.

If you find that the changelog has too many changes (most notably those of interface, functionality, etc.), you might want to skip the update if you’re already happy with the current version of the app.
