Roundup – For June 26 - July 2, 2017, New and Updated Revit and Navisworks Add-ins on the Autodesk App Store

The week of June 26, 2017 was a relatively slow one for Revit and Navisworks add-ins on the Autodesk App Store. Two apps were added and eight were updated.

New to the App Store were the self-explanatory Initial Levels and Grids, and Flipbook, for creating animations using keyframes (respectfully, we first published information on Flipbook nearly two years ago.)

Apparent False Updates

Most weeks there are a number of add-ins listed on the App Store as having been updated when they appear not to have been. We call these false updates.

We suspect false updates occur because developers have the ability in the App Store database to mark an 'update' without changing the version number. This is advantageous to developers because it moves their add-ins up in the App Store  'Newest' list. Also, authors of multiple add-ins on the App Store may use the practice to group their add-ins together. And some may mistakenly not change the version number for a legitimate update.

We verify false updates by comparing the current version numbers with our last posts about the add-ins. This is work for us, though, hopefully, value for you.

In the hopes that the App Store will someday fix this loophole or developers will cease the practice, we list the developers and their add-ins that, though marked as updated, were not.
