    If you just install a newer version apk of an app, will it simply update the app and retain whatever info you currently have in it? Or will it be like a fresh install and start with no info in it? This is via astro btw, not through the market obviously

    most apk's will just update the app and retain the settings.

    It will depend on the app coding itself, if poorly coded it will install and wipe, if better, then provisions are made for updating.
