    There are several apps that I have tried out and for various reasons the app didn't suit my needs so I uninstalled the app. Some of these apps were very close to what I was looking for so it is possible that a future upgrade to the app would make the app useful for my needs. In these cases, it would be nice to be able to have a list of these apps and get notified when an update is available. Is there a way to get notified of or monitor updates to an app that is not installed? I realize that I could just leave all these apps installed even though I wouldn't use them and then I would get update notifications through the marketplace, but that is just a waste of space and clutters the app drawer.

    Yes, also aTrackDog will let you monitor apps that are not installed. When you uninstall an app, it will ask if you want to keep monitoring it.

    However, I do not know (have not tried) how to make it monitor something that was not installed in the first place.
