    I don't think it is possible nor is their an app for it to show you immediately , an app update is available:)

    As far as I know , The Market periodically checks for app updates and if it finds any , thats when the Icon appears. I think I have worked out for me {UK}, The app's are checked around 23:30 GMT every night , Once every 24 hours. I could be wrong but this is what I have noticed. Some days I wake up and their is updates but I'm not notified at all.........

    Either way , the answer to your question is no :)

    You should be able to hit the menu button while at the marketplace home page and tap downloads. It should show available updates.

    There is an app called aTrackDog that will follow the udates for you and even follow apps that have been deleted from your phone if you wish to do that.
