Don't you just hate when you have to go to google play after an app has been updated in order to view the release notes?

I do! Thats why I created this app the help keep track on release notes when an app is installed or updated.
Install What's new? and get a notification with release notes on any new app that is automatically installed by google play.


APK attached, also available on Google Play: https ://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=se.warting.whatsnew

V0.1
First release!

V0.2
* New graphics
* A list of all apps to check release notes any time
* Added ads
* Share button
* Some other small improvements

V0.3
* Added swedish language * Sorted app list

V0.4
* New graphics and layout

V0.5
* Possibility to open the updated app directly from What's New?
* Possibility to open the updated app directyly in Google Play from Wha'ts new?
* Back button now works

V0.6
* Fixed a bug when fetching release notes when latest version depends on device

v0.7
* Moved share button to prevent crash when sharing before release notes has loaded
* Small bugfix

v0.8
* added release date

I'm going to try this out, looks great. You should make the list show the applications that have been updated recently because (at least) I don't always check the changes right away.

Very Useful!
This is excellent! It will be very handy at the time of app update installs and is also great to use for quickly seeing past release notes for all my installed apps.

Like the idea a lot!
(and the app, of course)

Is there a way to see the last update date that's shown at the Play Store?

Does it also show update change logs of NOT yet installed updates? (I like to read FIRST update log before updating them)..

No it does not. But it's great idea for the next version!
