  1. Where are the release notes for app updates in the Windows Store?


    In a recent update to the Windows Store app, release notes for apps have been done away with. Can these please be brought back? I would always read the notes when updating. It helps me with a few things:

    • I can find out if an app is about to crash my system.
    • I can find out if an app I had stopped using because of a bug has had that bug fixed.
    • I can find out if an app has a new feature added that would mean I can start using it in preference to a similar app


    This is far better than opening each app individually, hoping that I stumble on whatever the change might be. Or opening an app only to find out that it no longer works, and then lose hours of productivity trying to find alternatives.

    :)

    I think I'll put a list of people's favourite apps in the OP, starting with my own until I get some suggestions, but you can take a look at the Windows Phone app store at the top apps to see what's popular http://www.windowsphone.com/en-us/store

    You are both now added, welcome! *Toast :toast:
