Changelog Droid

Google allows you to check a box when installing apps from the Android Market enabling automatic updates. But I tend not to check that box because I like to see what’s included in each update, and I’m always worried that if I don’t check before installing new versions of my apps, I’ll never get around to it.

Now there’ s a new app that could convince me to just set it and forget it. The free app is called Changelog Droid, and basically it scans your phone or tablet for a list of apps and shows the changelog for each so that you can see what’s new in the latest version.

Changelog Droid won’t show you the new features before you download apps, but it does provide a one-stop shop for keeping up on the newest features in apps you’ve already installed on your device.

The app sorts changelogs based on install date, so the app you’ve updated most recently will show up at the tap. Only a few changelogs will be loaded at first, but as you scroll the app will gather info from additional apps.
