A question. Am I just not understanding the point of the Watchlist feature?
I went through apps and found ones that I care about. I added them to the watchlist https://imgur.com/nlbCa4r
It now looks like this. That to me at least looks like I'm watching threads. What I want is to be able to see when those 10 applications have been updated as the full installed list is way too long.
Is that the purpose of the watchlist feature?
Will it actually track the application and let me know when newer versions are released?
What's the point of those checkboxes?
The watch-list is indeed meant to "watch" for updates of the releases you add to this list.
You will get notified through a dialog if an update has been found, through this dialog you can directly "visit" this new release to download it etc.
The check-boxes are there to select the individual items in this list, which you then can delete.
The watch-list will be copied to the backup folder in the mobilism dir after you close the app, purpose of this that you always have a up to date copy for yourself (which you can put in a safe place) so you will not need to re-add all the items again.
Should you uninstall mobilism and reinstall it, the watch-list will automatically be restored.
Trust this clarifies.
