Android Update notificationsIn Android 2.2, you have the option to allow applications to automatically update themselves. And that's a good thing.

But say you don't ever want to get a notification that updates are available. (Hey, to each his own.) If you really don't want to be bothered, there's a setting for that, too.

Go into the Android Market and enter the Downloads section. (On most phones you'll need to hit the menu button first. Once there, tap the menu button again, and then choose "Notifications." You'll get the little menu you see here.

And after that, no more update notifications. But don't come crying to us when you miss that latest Angry Birds update, m'kay?

Cease app update notifications

7 Comments

app update notifications are never on time for me.....i always have to go into the market to see if there's an update and i have the "always notify me" checked! the only time i see a notification is probably a day later or when i dont check the market! i wish it was instant notification.....(well for me anyways)

Wait...an app updated yesterday and I missed it? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Time to call the WAAAAAAAAmbulance.

One of my favorite times of the day is to think, "ooooh I wonder if there are any app updates?!?" and I open it up and there are updates waiting for me. It is like Christmas everyday!

Quit whining!

u know what's more homo than an actual homo? people that say "Wambulance"....by far the gayest thing anyone could ever have made up! and im pretty damn sure a gay person made it up!

i have the box checked to all my apps for automatic updating, but they dont update, ever, and im not talking about the "manual update" apps.... why dont they update if i have the box checked?

i dont want to disable ALL notification updates. Just the ones that require me to now pay for the app if I update or otherwise face restrictions...

like Shazam
like WaveSecure
like ASTRO

or like certain specific apps that just asks you to update 2x/wk just so they can get more hits and downloads more positive ratings... i.e. MonkeyPunch developer of puzzle games.
