A graphical difference in releases

Meetup for BB Releases

 I did the 4.2.4 release for Meetup for BlackBerry 10, I didn’t receive the notification email that there was an update to the app.  I think I even waited a day or so before doing the update myself, which was available when I went to myApps in BlackBerry App World.  This wasn’t the first time that I did a release and the notification didn’t go through to the phone.  In the last release, I got the review approval from BlackBerry and then the update notice within 12 hours.  The approval came after 10 pm and by the next morning I had the update notice in my Hub

While this really isn’t too big of a deal and obviously the users are getting the update somehow, it does seem to make a difference as to how quickly the app update is downloaded.  And, when everyone downloads the app update at the same time, I sort of get an idea of how many people are using my app.  I know that some developers put hooks in their app to track that data, but it isn’t something I am doing with the Meetup app.  The hooks usually gets account information or hardware information, which may or may not be something the user wants to share.

Anyway, just an observation I wanted to share.
