    Hi Clockwork :)

    You should simply receive a notification saying updates available , another option is to simply go to the Android Market and click "My Downloads" , you will then see a page of all your apps.

    If their are updates available they will be up the top of the list with yellow writing on the right saying update available. Click the app with the update text on it and then select "update". It should then start downloading and your all done & up to date!

    Speaking of Android Market updates on the Hero, I have never gotten one of these notifications. Of course, the My Downloads part of the market always shows when an update is available for the specific applications.

    I use the HTC Hero on AT&T in the USA. Does anyone else not receive the Android Market notification? It could be a carrier-specific thing.
