    i have a HTC Desire and although i used to get them at first i am no longer getting the notifications when apps are ready for update, i have the settings clicked to alert me but i have had several apps needed updates recently and none gave me the notification, has any body else had this issue and how can it be resolved, not a majot issue but just frustrating.

    I seem to get the updates come through when I open the Market. Don't know if it forces a check when you open the screen.

    Not an ideal solution (I rarely get update notifications without going there), but it may be a quick work around?

    Also, worth checking if you have a task manager or Juice Defender type app running that disables any auto-update feature, regardless of you over riding!

    HI, not really a solution but 2.2 (froyo) will update automatically. Depending on your network it will be with you in the coming weeks

    I open the market and go to the downloads page and it tells me what apps are ready for update but i used to get notifications on the home page when they were avalible, this has now stopped, just wondered if it was something i can change a setting to get round as it was handy to have these notifications save having to laod the market up to see if i have any updates.

    will check the task killer and see if theres anything there

    The Market has been behaving a bit oddly the past week. For example, after I upgraded to Froyo, several of my paid apps were not showing up on the Market at all. A few days later and they are back again.

    I'd give it a bit of time to settle down.

    I have the same problem. I downloaded from the market "App Update Notifier " and find it does what the stock item does. Hope this helps
