Aggregate Your Release Notes with What’s New
Have you ever installed application updates through Google Play without bothering to see what has changed? Who’s to blame you. After all, sometimes you’re busy and it’s just a lot easier to hit “Update All” than it is to actually read the What’s New section for every app. What’s more, many people like to leave auto-update enabled on many or all of their apps.
Wouldn’t it be nice if there were a tool that aggregates this information into one easy to access screen so that you can view this at your leisure? There is now such an app, thanks to XDA Forum Member kannibal85‘s latest app What’s New.
What’s New does exactly as its name says and displays the What’s New section for all of your installed apps, as well as their version numbers. Making matters easier, the app can also be accessed through drop down notifications that appear after an app is freshly updated.
Head over to the original thread to get started. While you’re at it, be sure to be meta and check out the app’s own What’s New section.

One year ago, Google introduced cardboard. Amazingly enough, that was all it took to fire up the Virtual Reality scene on Android, and what began as an open design concept exploded into thousands of apps and dozens of headsets from big and small vendors alike. Now, there are more than 1 million cardboard viewers/handsets - a Google-quoted number that might not even be accurate given the ease with which headsets can be rigged through off-the-shelf equipment. This year, cardboard returned...
