Stop Android from Trying to Update Your Apps with Market Autoupdate

If you are like many, there are times when you are happy with the way something works. Everything you could possibly want to do works flawlessly. Next thing you know, there is an update for it, but you do not want to install it for fear of losing your current functionality. If you own an Android device, you need to make sure that the app is not set to autoupdate via the Market or else, you will get the update… whether you want to or not.

XDA member eddieringle has created an app to toggle all automatic market update functions in Android. The app is simple but to the point. Moreover, if there is enough interest, the dev mentioned that he will create a widget if there is enough interest in it.

We just released an app to the Market for rooted devices running Froyo that enables quick and easy toggling on and off of automatic updates for all of your installed Market apps (aside from system apps that update via the Market).

Search for “market autoupdate” on the Android Market and try it out now!

Let us know what you think of it. Some people mentioned they would be interested to see widget support for this. If enough people want a widget, we’ll consider adding widget support to this app!

You can find more information in the app thread.

Watches: Luxurious Frivolity vs. Humble Practicality

Smartwatches still have a lot of growing up to do. Not too long ago the latest Canalys figures revealed a rather disappointing outcome for 2014, something we covered with the ultimate conclusion that, once again, smartwatches had no year. The direction of smartwatches is unclear to even the biggest OEMs, and with every new option there seems to be polarizing dissonances from what people and OEMs want and what they both think they want. We've documented many of the reasons as to...
