There are many, many ways to do this. The barest minimum might be:
put url "http://myserver.org/updatedata/latest.txt" into latestUpdateData
Then work with that data as you wish. Not a web site, though it requires a
web host to stick the file on, of course. Though there are plenty of free
places to do that. Even a DropBox...
You can get as complicated as you want from there on, but that lets you
update all apps by updating one file.
