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. Donut (1.6), auto complete text view and ellipsize

I have a layout that includes the following:

<AutoCompleteTextView
     android:id="@+id/search_code"
     android:layout_width="fill_parent"
     android:layout_height="wrap_content"
     android:selectAllOnFocus="true"
     android:completionThreshold="2"
     android:maxLength="60"
     android:singleLine="true"
     android:ellipsize="end"
     android:imeOptions="actionDone"/>

Up until 1.6 the ellipsize attribute on my view above functions as I
would expect. Since upgrading to 1.6 the ellipsize attribute,
regardless of what I set it to (start, middle, end) seems to be
ignored.

Any hints and/or recommendations?
