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.

We'll see that first, then take a look at a new tool that aims to make the process much easier, and finally compare it to the popular Xposed framework to see how they...
