iOS 4.2-compatible iPhone apps beginning to appear in iTunes App Store?

Looks like Apple has begun to release those iOS 4.2-compatible iPhone and iPad app updates into the iTunes App Store. Or so our App Store update would have us believe.

Ally and I have caught DropBox so far. Have you been alerted to any iOS 4.2-compatible app updates in your App Store? Let us know which ones in the comments below!

(And yes, this is another sign that iOS 4.2's release could come any time now.)

Webvex says:

@mark, indeed. I assume he's hinting that maybe 4.2 is about to drop, although he doesn't state that. Lots of 4.2 compatible apps have been in the store for quite some time now, and this is hardly news. They're just trying to whip up the impatient crowd, and perhaps give some of the devs a little opportunity to plug their wares.

Webvex says:

OK, now I see a direct statement at the end. It's still nothing new.

Phil says:

Dropbox and Voice Memos for iPad.
I'm on GM tho, so I don't know if it makes a difference.
