Snippet: Stop F#$!ing Up Your Release Notes ☇

Shared on September 22, 2015

Stuart Hall:

I’m one of those people that love to get new updates. I check my updates tab often, read the release notes and go check out the apps I use all the time.

Somewhere along the line release notes have become a joke. Something companies obviously see no value in.

Even in the age of apps that update on their own, it’s nice to see what changed other than “generic stability and performance improvements” so many apps advertise. I especially loathe the new trend of release notes simply saying that apps are updated every week or every two weeks. Take the time to share what you’ve done and be proud of the improvements. It’s only a few sentences.
