    On the iPHone, the APP store has a number on it indicating you have an update. I cannot find this on the droid. How can you tell if you have an update for an app on the Droid? Possible Fail? or am i missing something

    Help OUT!

    Go to Downloads (Menu Button - then Downloads) in the market and it will tell you. It's also in your notification bar if you haven't cleared it.

    when an update is released it will show on the notification bar with a little market sign.

    If you've never seen it then it means your phone is up to date with the apps and all that...

    As others pointed out, you shouldn't need to check the downloads area. (doesn't hurt but you shouldn't need to) You will get a notification whenever there is an update to any app you have installed.

    Maybe you should think about revising your thread title then...:)

    Perhaps to "Possible MAJOR problem with my search skills."

    I don't know how anyone would get that impression. I mean he has smileys and everything. Maybe some are too sensitive for people not being "nice".

    Btw, mine used to show update notifications in the status bar but no longer does. I have to manually check.

    You can toggle notification of updates on and off. Go to Market/Downloads/Menu/Notifications

    Yeah mine is set to notify but still nothing. Oh well...I check manually several times a day when I'm bored anyway so no biggie I guess.

    seems like the notifications don't come thru instantly. i checked manually this morning and had 2 updates but didn't download them. later in the afternoon i got the notification that i had updates for those 2 apps.
