Beta/Manually Installed Applications

    So I have a general question about manually installed applications, and more specifically, beta applications.

    If you manually install a beta version of an application, can you install later release versions for that application as updates from the market? Or do you have to uninstall the beta version, then install the market version? I realize that you don't get update notifications, but I'm not concerned about that. I check the market regularly.

    The reason I ask is I would prefer to not have to configure applications twice (specifically Touchdown).

    As with all betas, you should uninstall, reboot, and then install the release version once beta goes gold. All settings would be wiped out or should be. As for TD, have you tried the Market version yet? The beta version is for folks having issues with the release. After the beta is over, if you have Market, you will get the update. At least try the 5 day trial, it's easy to remove and if it's only one account it's not that time consuming.
