    I notice that I never receive a notification from the Market stating that I have an update available to 1 or more of my applications. I have to manually go into the Market and look at my downloads. Is there a way to fix this?

    Mine does it sometimes, sometimes it doesn't. Haven't figured out why yet, either.

    Wow they seem to come pretty regularly for me. I have noticed that if you click out of the notification without immediately attending to it there is no place to recover that list, which is a bummer. I wish there was a way to get the screen to show all the downloads and thus show if an update was available.

    If you click the menu button when in the Market, there's a downloads option - this brings up all the apps you have installed and tells you which ones need updated.

    This is how I've been checking for updates... manually.

    I've gotten in the habit of just checking the Market every morning to see if there's anything new. Occasionally, I'll get an update notification, but not very often.

    Yeah I've noticed that a lot of people didn't know that you could check your "downloads" section of the Market for updates to apps...

    Thanks that is exactly what I hoped was available. And there was an update that I had not received a notice on - so this will be great! I had been given another suggestion that was also working but this might be a bit better.
