    Every time I connect to a Wi-Fi connection, a certain numbers of Apps will start to update without notifying me.

    Under Settings in the Android Market, I have it set to "Notify Me" before it starts downloading the Apps, but this only seems to be working for some Apps and not all of them

    Also, I've noticed that the majority of Apps I have have a "Allow Automatic Updating" option with a [Tick] box next to it but then about 4 of my Apps don't have this option.

    So, basically these 4 or so Apps are ignoring my request to not "Download automatically". Is there another way other than in the Market Settings and on the Apps page to disable this?

    Thank you,

    hypr.

    What are the apps? There might be an option somewhere in the apps settings that are over riding the market settings?

    Also, which version of the market are you using?

    The Apps are Facebook For Android, Adobe Flash Player, Words with Friends and Google Maps.

    There are no options in any of them to change whether they Automatically Update in the Market or not.

    The Market version I have is 2.3.4.

    Thanks.

    You could try updating to the new version of the market? It's a bit more configurable when it comes to app updating.

    I seem to have the opposite problem. All my apps and settings are set to auto update, but they never do. It always has to be done manually.

    And despite Google update the market version 2 or 3 times in the last few months I'm still in the crappy old green market. Installed the apk that's knocking about and it wouldn't let me install apps at all.

    Thanks, I've updated the Market. See what happens now I guess.
