Applications can be installed via android market, for already installed apps like google maps: look them up on android-market even if already installed. I.e. for maps newer versions just appear here.

…but the tcp-channel itself stays awake. This is especially bad for ssh-sessions, i am used to have some ssh-sessions open to remote servers. Typical behaviour shown: the channel stays established, but no application-layer-data is sent any more. Since the tcp-channel stays alive ssh doesnt notice. Make it notice in setting
ServerAliveCountMax 1 ServerAliveInterval 15
in ~/.ssh/config for the connection. This lets the ssh-client at least in timely manner notice the connectionloss.
Now for reastablishing the remote-session on the ssh-server: first setup ssh-pubkey-authotization. I did, with ssh-agent, so once the ssh-key is added its available in all my xterms via ssh-agent. Then on the remote box run screen-sessions, i.e. using 'screen -S irssi' and run irssi inside there. From the client we can now run something like this and an aborted connection is reastablished transparently:
while :; do ssh -t user@remotehost screen -rd irssi; done
