Roundup – For Sep 4-10, 2017, New and Updated Revit and Navisworks Add-ins on the Autodesk App Store

Here on Revit Add-ons, the week of September 4, 2017 was a moderately busy one for Revit and Navisworks add-ins on the Autodesk App Store. Three new add-ins were published, and six others were updated.

For new add-ins, each for Revit, bimsync is an unofficial add-in for publishing models to the cloud-based construction collaboration platform, Sheet Copy is for copying sheets and features a unique system for setting names, and Styler is for controlling the color and font of the Ribbon.

For updates, the renamed Punch Pro received a relatively significant update, and a new lower price.

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.
