Does anyone else feel that editing these manifest files is like filling out tax forms?

I personally can't blame them for getting this wrong if the development tools don't provide adequate feedback.

It would be nicer if the tooling was better, but at the same time:

1. Everyone else can apparently do it properly. 2. They could have caught this problem in testing.

It's just a case of a non-software company adding on an app as an afterthought.

I wouldn’t be surprised if they just outsourced the app development to the lowest bidder.
