    I have had my droid for a couple of days now, and just recently have started to get more into it. Went to the app store and noticed there was an update for a couple of the apps that I had installed. that got me wondering, what if i have a large amount of apps, I would then have to search for them individually in the store to update them! This seems like it would be a total pain. Im I just doing something wrong, like a setting or a menu im not seeing? Or is there an app that can find updates for apps that I have installed? Ive seen app managers but all fail to mention any sort of automatic updates of any kind. Please help.

    Go into the Market and click on My Downloads. It will have any apps with updates at the top labeled as "Update Available." You then just click them and select to update them.

    I wish there was a way to just update apps via a pop-up that had a list of available updates. You just uncheck whatever updates you don't want and click 'ok' and it does it all in the background with potentially only a single button click versus having to load the market and go through all the steps.

    That would definitely be a nice feature, although sometimes I'm glad it makes me go one by one so I can read the latest comments and see if the app is still good and check the permissions it's asking for.

    I guess that is really the reason, checking permissions. I know if I could update all at once I might get a little lazy about checking.

    The market does actually have a notification feature built in. Go to the market - downloads and hit the menu button. Hit notifications and check to notify.

    Only thing is there's no way i know of to set the check frequency. Pretty sure the defaults is every 24 hours.
