Yesterday, Google Calendar had a nice update drop in the Play Store. The problem is, if you only read the release notes, you would have had no idea that a great new feature in the app. That feature, the ability to drag & drop appointments to new days and times, was not mentioned in the release notes. At all. In fact, the release notes are from some four months ago.
The problem is that users of apps on Android need those release notes to know what they are getting in the update. Be it a new feature or even a little bit of detail around what was fixed if it is a maintenance release would go along way. Instead, users are dependent on sites like ClintonFitch.com and others to dive into the updates as soon as they drop or do APK tear downs to find out what’s new. Believe me, I appreciate you coming and finding out what is new in a release but really, should it be such a guessing game? No, I don’t think so.
