Is there a recommended method for app updates?

 So as of Android 1.1 (which almost everyone has been running for the
past few months), the Market app automatically checks for updates
without any extra work on the developer's part.  It shows a
notification to the user, something like "3 updates available" and the
user can choose which ones to upgrade.

You could also roll your own update checking if you'd like, and
several developers have open-sourced small libraries to help with
this.
