    Is it possible to update all apps at once? I woke up today to 10 available updates and I'm sure others have seen even higher numbers. I searched around but didn't have any luck. I don't think I'd want them updating on their own automatically, but an "Update All" button would be nice. Thanks

    Would love that feature too. I'll see if I can create an app to do that.

    the only downside to this is that some updates break phones. If there was an app created to update all, i would like it to check the last three feed back of each app first, and if all three were 3 stars or under flag it for a manual update. This allows the user to read to see if the update they are about to do will mess up the app on the phone.

    I guess that's probably something I should do, but I usually just run down the list and update. Though it would be cool if we could somehow see each of the top 3 reviews all in 1 place. Then maybe have options like "Update All" or check off the ones you want and "Update Selected."

    +1. I don't know why they didn't include that in the Market to begin with. Also, I think the should have included a way to send the links to apps to friends from the Market. I know there are apps to do that now (App Recommender) but that should have been there from the start, IMO.

    I've been looking for this feature as well!! Would REALLY like to have the "Update All" or "Update Selected" feature... it is so time consuming clicking on each app's update... one by one by one.

    Im usually getting at the very least 5 updates a day. I think developers should focus on making bigger updates then many small ones, then updating all at once wouldnt even be needed. but I would love an app that does this.

    I tried updating a bunch at once before, just kept clicking. It seemed like the most it would update would be 2 - 3 at once. The others just didn't update until the first 2-3 were completed. Then I had to hit "update" again on the others.

    I'm not kidding when I say that I at one time had 32 updates to install one morning. It was rough.

    The sharing an app on the Market is a pretty dumb thing that is missing. If I was a developer I would want it to be easy for someone to share my app with someone else.

    I started a thread on this the other day and I don't know what I said but most people seemed to think I was an idiot. Well, they are right to some extent but geesh!

    I agree and the updates always seem to come right when I'm in the middle of something.

    I almost never (it's very rare) for me to get notifications from the Market that I have updates available. I manually check daily. I'd welcome the notifications to pop up in the notification bar! Lol

    That is weird, as I said before, every week I get about 30 updates. And its not like I have THAT many apps. I have quite a few, but these updates are ridiculous. Almost everytime I turn on my phone to look at facebook or something, it's like "hey look, 2 more updates"

    EDIT: This morning, I woke up, and had 11 new updates.

    I've got 9 updates pending now, but I'm going to keep searching for an app to do it.
    From another thread I thought AppBrain was it, but it doesn't seem to do what we're looking for.
