    Don;t get me wrong my Moto DROID rocks. However, if I could change one thing (Flash is coming from what I hear) I wish there was a one-touch application update feature.

    It is so annoying to constantly have to update each individual app. I don't care what the update is, I always will chose to update so that it stops bothering me.

    Anyone know if this exists or on the horizon.

    In 2.2, you will see an option when you download new apps to "allow automatic updating". All apps (I think) will have the option available, but not all apps will actually allow it to happen. You will see "Manual Update Required" when updates are available on those apps.

    Hope that helps.

    auto-app update is part of 2.2 IIRC

    There is also an "Update All" button, but it only works for apps that have not changed permissions since the last install.
