It's annoying as hell to see 5+ apps needing updates every single day on Android. The frequent updates is probably due to devs trying to game the system by constantly trying to have their app show up in the 'Just In' category. The Market needs to be reworked or give us a damn 'Update All' button.
1) I don't see app updates every day. If you do, it's probably because you just have a LOT installed 2) If devs were trying to game the system, each app would be updated every day, not just 5 of them 3) Because Android hardware varies, isolated bugs pop up at a much higher rate than they do for other OSes whose hardware is actually married to them. If you take a look at the update notes for some of the apps you'll notice that many updates are due to bugs on various handsets (Hero, DROID, etc.) - LANjackal
Most of the time, the apps don't even have update notes. It's always a incremental update from like 1.5.0.1 to 1.5.0.2 with no mention of anything. - Rodfather
Twidroid's updates are legit, thank you very much. - LANjackal from IM
The Market is a mess and a half. It's like a 99 cent store after a 49 cent sale... They need to take control and PRONTO. - Adrian
What it needs is an auto-update or update all function that only flags things that changed the permissions. From what I understand that's why it's done the way it is. Still, do you guys ever read the permissions list or care? I mean seriously... - Adrian
I've got this annoying tendency to check for app updates a few times in the day. There has to be a way to notify us, at least not for 1 app update, but maybe when there's >2 - Adarsh
