Automatic Application Update via Market?

 Hi all,

I'm currently about to public my first app on the Market, and have a
question which I hope somebody will be able to answer:

Do I have to build a "check for updates" function into my application,
or does the phone itself check the market periodically to see if there
are new versions of applications available?

If I have to build my own "check for updates" functions into my app,
are there any specific API's that can be used to query the market, or
do need to build my own API that checks version info externally on a
separate website?

Does any one who has done this have any general advise with regards to
application updates? How have you solved this problem?

Many thanks for any answers you can provide!

Regards
--
Brad.

2. getExtra() and cursors

Hey, I am still not totally sure as to how putExtra() and getExtras()
actually function. If I have a click listener in one class and I want to
use an intent from that to a new activity, how should I actually call
getExtras()? I thought it would be stored in the bundle or something,
but I am not totally sure what a bundle is >.>. Also, if anyone knows
about row_ids for SQlite databases (or at least I think thats what they
are), I could also use some clarification here. If I have the row id for
a contact, is it possible to get other information about that contact
from their row id using a cursor? Or is there a better way of doing
this? My ultimate goal is just to have a list of contacts display, and
when you click on one you see their data (phone number and things of
that nature). Thanks for all the help already! This is a great group.
