No Release Notes – Take 3

I’ve seen a couple of apps now start adding release notes again. But then, I also saw one company decide to stop adding release notes. My latest procedure, if I can’t delete the app yet, is to write release notes for them in the review.

Here’s my review of one company’s product – “Word”:

Since they don’t include release notes any more, let me tell you what they added in this version:
– Deletes all your files on login
– Spies on your family
– Detects cookie jars in your kitchen and eats all your cookies

If these aren’t the features they added, perhaps they’ll add release notes next time and prove me wrong.

I strongly encourage you to do the same. If they don’t get the hint, at least the reviews will be entertaining.

As such many pop songs, especially those produced by Max Martin and his associates, match the definition.
