    Do you ever get excited about updates for your programs, only to click on it and see something like "Added support for UK users" or "Added new Exit Button"? or something similar? Are those updates really worth the notification to update? I always feel let down. :-(

    Do you mean in the market? In a lot of cases, that's just a way for the developers to "bump" their listing in the market and to "remind" you that you have it installed.

    The 2.2 market has an auto-update option so that you don't get bugged all the time :D

    not sure if I'd like that or not...it'd be nice for it to update without my having to do anything. But how will I know about new/awesome upgrades?

    When you open your favorite app and go "woah," you'll know.

    Is it auto update for each app, or auto update for EVERY app.

    I am not updating google voice for now because the change is not good for me.

    First thing I did was go down the list and check auto update for every app in my list. Second thing I did was go back down the list and uncheck them because I decided I really want to know when an app is updated and what changed :p

    I thought it was supposed to be setup that it would only auto-update if the app access didn't change?

    It probably is. I am more concerned with being on top of whats new. I have a *lot* of apps and I would hate to see any of the updates get lost in the shuffle.

    My biggest problem with updates on the 2.2 leak is that in the morning on first boot I will get a notification in the status bar that says I have 5or so updates and when the market opens there will only be 1 or 2 updates at the most.

    Anybody else seeing that? Thats my biggest let down of the day :(

    Back to the OP, I feel the same way. I get excited on some of my favorite apps or apps I feel something is broken or missing, and I think "extra features!!!".

    Then it says "fixes for 1.5 devices and other crap you don't care about. the app still crashes and the UI is terrible. In fact, I made it worse and added pointless features that bog it down worse."


    Granted, they are never that honest, but that's what I always read in my mind.

    Hey GrandMasterB, How are you doing. It seems like you were off for a while, vacation?

    When did you change your Avatar? I like it!
