    Updating market Apps.

    For some reason, this is the process I use to update apps:

    • Open Market
    • Go to the downloads screen.
    • Click on an app
    • click update
    • confirm update
    • repeat for every app that has updates

    I'm sure I'm wasting lots of time. There's no way I'm expected to repeat this process over 10+ apps. Despite searching far and wide I don't know where the "Update all at once" button is.

    What am I missing? Did Google put it in a secret menu just to screw with me?

    I would like to be able to see checkboxes next to each app. Check the ones to update and go.

    This would make Market much better.

    I don't know why Market decides to show updates. Generally I hear about an update and look myself.

    Updating Apps...

    when one of my apps get an update, from the seller, I get a notification
    in the staus bar, letting me know there is an update to an app I have
    installed.

    I was just going to say this. I don't bother looking for updates. I just get a notice that there's an update available.
    Cleanse the gene pool,
    Stamp out warning labels.

    Hmm. I regularly receive notifications that an app has an available update (in my drop down notification drawer). I click on it - follow prompts to okay the update. Never went looking for one yet. I thought this was an automatic setup. I never set up anything myself to receive these notifications - but I can say I get 1-3 almost every day (I have about 60 apps on my Droid).

    This morning I got the notification for Google Maps sending down an update. Also Docs to Go.

    This is not the normal setup? mike

    I wouldn't want all of my apps to update at once. I noticed that more and more apps are being updated with lots of ads to support the developers. I'll stick with ad free apps if i can help it.

    But it would be a nice option for those of you who want to do it all at once.

    I also get notifications when there are updates available. I have never gone out looking for updates. I had two this morning.

    Although funny... I didn't get an update notification about Google Maps...

    I didn't get this. Weird.

    Its seems hit or miss whether I get a notification in the notification bar for updates. This morning I got a notification for Where, but my last several updates I had to manually check for.
