    Hi all

    How do I enable notifications for updates to apps I've downloaded from the marketplace? Can't seem to find the option.

    thank you.

    As far as I know, there's no way to "notify" you. Howver, when you go into the Market app on your phone, hit the menu button and select "downloads". It will populate and anything that has an update will be listed at the top.

    my G1 used to inform me without having to go into the market. the Galaxy S does not seem to do that.
    its not bothering me too much though as i open the market once a day.

    Mine notifies me - on the pull down menu it states the number of updates available.
