    This is the type of descriptive update that I'd like to see in every single app. I feel sorry for those apps that use Minor improvements for speed and reliability as an update description... It's not something that bother me, but I would like to know what I'm updating.

      Or something along the lines of "We update every 2 weeks for your own good. Ok thanks byeee."

        Oh yeah, also that! That just makes me feel that they don't really care about those who are using the app. My question is; how can they expect users to know what's new into an app? Black magic? Even if they are user testing the app, that's not the right place to do it. That's cheap user testing for me. But who cares?, that's just my opinion. :)

      Oh, absolutely agree. I'm just saying that from a marketing standpoint... it's rare to see the space used for pumping up a new typeface. For designers, it's exciting. For my wife and just about everyone else not in the industry... wouldn't care at all. To be fair though, those people also probably don't read the update descriptions... so the message is probably going to the intended audience in the end! Heh.
