    I don't use app world. How can I determine if an app has an update? Until the download starts in the browser, I can't tell if the version on the 'net is newer than what's on my device. For example, i just went to Slacker.com to reinstall slacker due to issues with 2.x and 607. Luckily, the download is 3.x and works fine, but when I have apps that are installed and are running fine, I'd like to get newer versions that have new features/bug fixes in a reasonable time frame. I can't for the life of me figure out a method for quickly determining versions before downloading. they tend to only show the major number of the app, or not even that, sometimes.

    If you purchased the app through Crackberry app store or Mobihand they send emails to let you know. For free apps I usually just see a blog or something that they updated

    Yeah and Slacker's not good with notification either, the last two updates from them I found only by going to their site to redownload and noticed it was a newer version.

    Appworld is setup to notify with a little icon on the screen when updates to installed software is available, however they are a little slow in updating Appworld itself with the newer versions.

    Lastly, as mentioned above, anything purchased thru Mobihand/CB Store will get a notification in your email that an update is available, but only for items you've purchased.

    Basically, I just go thru my apps from time to time and visit their sites and try the download to see if the version has changed.
