    Scenario:
    I backed up everything from Android using MyBackup Pro. I upgraded from "2.1 leak v1" to "2.1 leak v3". I used MyBackup Pro to restore all of my apps. Is there any way to trigger getting app update notification? I know I could just reinstall all the apps via the regular market and from that point forward I would get the updates. But this really defeats my purpose of restoring using the MyBackup Pro app.

    I there an app that saves/reinstalls apps correctly so the market sees the updates properly?

    (i searched a little, but ran out of time so i just wanted to ask)

    not that i know of. there is an app that just saves a list of your applications and reinstalls them from the market. but if you have off market apps like swype, or paid apps like beautiful widgets, your still stuck
