Toggle Auto Update for Android Market
A new feature that is available in Android 2.2 (Froyo) is the option to allow auto updating of Apps in the Android Market. This is incredibly useful if you have tons of apps and want to update them all without individually clicking “Install” on each application prompt.
Thanks to XDA member eddieringle for releasing their simple toggle that allows you to toggle this feature using a simple widget. Since the app is just a toggle there aren’t many “features” to it, but we encourage you to go install it and let it handle all your Android Market updates. The developer also added that if enough people want to that they will develop a little widget for it which would be even simpler than opening the app.
