Update Apps on Your Droid Bionic - dummies

Update Apps on Your Droid Bionic

One nice thing about using the Android Market to get new software for your Droid Bionic is that the market also notifies you of new versions of the programs you download. Whenever a new version of any app is available, you see it flagged for updating as shown in this figure. Updating the app to get the latest version is cinchy.


From the downloads list (refer to the figure), touch the Update button to update all the apps for which automatic updating is allowed.

Some apps must be updated individually. To do so, touch the Update item in the downloads list to see the app’s information screen. Touch the Update button on the app’s information screen and then choose Accept & Download.

To make updating easier, open an app’s information screen and place a green check mark by the item Allow Automatic Updating.

  • The updating process often involves downloading and installing a new version of the app. That’s perfectly fine; your settings and options are not changed by the update process.

  • Update to apps might also be indicated by the Updates Available notification icon, shown here.


    Choose the Updates Available notification to be instantly whisked to the My Apps screen, where you can update your apps.
