Software confirmation update alerts are mostly helpful when they are shown immediately after I’ve gone through an update process.
However, to show the alert on every subsequent load, just because I haven’t explicitly dismissed it, is completely overkill.
Take, for example — Amazon Music:
I updated my software about three weeks ago when I stopped my Spotify premium subscription. (I’ve been questioning my life choices ever since.) I’m really just too lazy to drag my mouse over to the ‘x’ button, and I’m really curious to see how long it takes for them to hide that alert stripe. So far, two weeks and counting.
I’ve been trying to find a use case for this…any takers?
