Nokia N900 Automatic Updates for all apps!?

| December 18, 2009 | 110 Replies

With S60 if you have several apps installed, you might not know there’s a newer updated version until you try out that application again (and that’s if you’re lucky).

Today, the N900 gave me a notification saying a few applications I had previously installed had some updates. I continued and the N900 proceeded to install all applicable updates. [Is this because I added a new "Application Catalogue" or have I inadvertently installed an app-update indicator?)

Note the "!" - Notice the time: it didn't take 30 minutes to update, this screenshot was taken today and the rest below yesterday. Note that I have yet a new update notification after having installed the ones below.

Status notification that I have 8 software updates available

Systematically installing one update after another - no more additional button presses.

Alternatively, you can just go to “App Manager” and manually search “Update” – which is still better than the S60 option.
