Well, this varies depending on the app and how it's distributed. I'm
guessing this isn't for apt-provided packages, but for standalone apps?
You'll probably find you need to write a script that will retrieve a
webpage and check for some text in it, perhaps using that text to craft
a link to the latest version.

It might be worth, for the excercise, trying a few simpler scripting
tasks first. Do you have any experience? If so, in which languages?
There's probably at least a couple of people who can help, but if
you're already conversant in, say, Python, there's little point in my
sending you Perl hints
